coolant leak from manifold

Looks like I have coolant leaking from the lower intake manifold. Anyone else ever run across this on the JK?

Im going to replace the gaskets tomorrow. Anything I should pay special attention to?

Thanks Justin

Make sure the bolts aren't rusted. Mine were and I had to have the dealer do the work. They had to re-sleeve the bolt hole because of it.

Oh that sounds peachy. Im going to give it a go on my own. I have been trying be more involved in the mechanical work. I have to learn this stuff sometime, just wish I would have when I was younger.

I can always call a tow truck if I get in over my head
