Adam's as well but there's also Dan's driveline. No experience with Dan's but have heard good word of mouth and possibly cheaper. On the other hand I've bought a SYE and TJ driveshaft, they've installed a detroit in an 8.8 for me, installed gears and a locker in a D35 front for me, ordered axle shafts thru them and they built driveshafts for both of these trucks for me with zero issues...

$62 from Adams... I was actually going to go to Adams but they told me to just go to dans since it is closer to me, and cheaper $53.

Raptor that xj looks like it may have been wrecked. It could just be the pics but the front pass fender looks like it doesn't match as well as the front grill surround. Just my thoughts, may be able to get it a little cheaper.

I actually noticed the same thing but didn't want to say anything incase it was someone's on here. I recommend you be very careful on this one.

From what I've been told '00s are notorious for head gasket failure.

Judging from the pics, it has been wrecked. The paint match is off between the fender and the rest of the body as well as the grill surround. I would venture to guess that there are no pics of the drivers side because it is in the sun and therefore the mis-match would be more visible.

Khris, I may be up for a trip out there. I have no reason to go other than window shopping high dollar toys.

They are for the head cracking, but it really isn't that hard of a fix. It'll set you back $400-500 but it wouldn't stop me from buying one. I've swapped the head on an 01 in a day. The only help I needed was another set on hands to help get the new head on even without damaging the new head gasket.

144k on my head, no issues. I just keep one eye on the road and one on my temp guage. When i am oit wheelin' if the temp goes higher than 220* i shut down the motor untill it cools off. I am over reacting to it i know, but, better safe than sorry.
