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.

Changed out plugs, wires, distributor caps, and rotor button. Runs much smoother now.

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.
