I paid 200 for my MJ and it has NO drivers floor, barely idles, and is beat to hell. You sir are very lucky.

Dont waste a single dime on that ba-10, find an ax-15 and save yourself the hassel ,


Order a water pump or pull one off of another jeep (make sure its the right year), i've never actually noticed which way it rotates, but i wouldnt give it another thought. I have never heard of anyone ever having a reverse directional water pump, at least on a 4.0.

3 for the front, 2 for the rear. Spicers came stock in comanches and are a good replacement.

Im not sure of the terminology either, but i did not have to replace mine, but if its worn it will need to be replaced. I didnt have the time to try to figure out how replace the u joints on that front shaft, so I sent it to the shop. I had to get my rear shaft cut and balanced, so i figured why not.
