Lol, the kit is complete except the harmonic balancer and you have to pick which one you need ( serpentine or v-belt) and the 4.0 head is not necessary this kit can be installed on a 4.2 head also.

It would be sweet to do the serpentine upgrade at the same time. Id much rather have one than a V belt.

That shouldn't be a problem at all, lol. It really don't look too bad, all the connectors are labeled.

I wouldn't want anything to do with that one, I had one and don't plan to have another.

Been there too, I had one in my old wrecker, cost a lot of money to keep that old truck going, but when I sold it it had over 400,000 miles on it. So it was not all bad.

Yeah I had a 2 door tahoe with it and I didn't trust it after 3 pmd's and still shutting off, so it got sold and the funds went into the jeep.

When I had mine I was planning on swapping a Cummins in its place, but I wound up closing the towing company.

I had told people when I did I was going to build a smelter so i could take that 6.5 and turn it into a boat anchor from the figurative to the literal sense! lol

I broke down the other two wheels and tires to get them ready to mount on the other two spyderlocks that I should have Thursday. This past Saturday I rode along with my cousin for some wheeling (since mine ain't right yet I rode with him) and one of the guys we went with had just put a set of metalcloak fenders on his tj, and now I'm considering a set for mine because I like the fact that they are different than the usual flat tube fenders. Opinions?
