Tomorrow I'm pulling my transfer case. It needs to be replaced, and I found a used one for $100. It should hold out long enough to get me through college and into my own garage.

Question: I started taking my trans-skid off today and it seems to provide some sort of support for the bell housing/transfer case. Is this true? If so, what's the best way to get it off? Think basic home garage. I don't really have any specialized tools/lifts at my disposal.
When I dropped my skid I took two pieces of 2x4 and used them edgewise against the pan bolts and one to span across and supported it with a floor jack. No driving but I could drop the skid and clean it up.

Replaced my exhaust manifold and exhaust gasket. The manifold had a crack in it plus it and the intake manifold were only being held onto the head with only 5 out of the 7 bolts. The gasket, what was left of it, came off in three pieces

Jeep is purring like a kitten right about now. Soo eerie to hear what my jeep is supposed to sound like rather than what I heard for the last year that I had her. So quiet inside the cab that I almost ate a curb making a turn because I was too focused on listening rather than seeing that I lost grip in the after rain until I felt the rear swing out a bit

Next up.....new tires and an Aussie locker for the front.

I noticed the same thing when I installed my BD MML, now it's sitting on a shelf. My jeep is a 4cyl and they produce more vibrations than the 4.0.
I guess I need to dig them out and try and sell them....

Check the thru-bolts, if they're tightened too much, that'll translate into vibes. Doesn't take much. Try letting off of Em a bit and see if it lessens your vibes.

Jeep started having a ticking noise, sounds like a deisel engine. Put some Sea Foam in the crank and drove for about 80 miles then changed the oil.

Used VR1 Conventional, tick instantly went away!!

Your jeep started ticking?! I don't believe it! No such thing as a ticking engine!!








I kid of course... Mines been ticking for nearly 50k miles. Seafoam, mmo, and Lucas be damned.
