HERE IS THE UPDATE....

I heard back from Chrysler today... They are NOT going to help with anything at all... the local dealer is stepping up and trying to help... they are even go to work extra hard with the extended warranty company to get something toward the fix...
I am leaning toward the short block and fixing it right... but I do have the option of a long block (not and OEM product) or I could just do crank and bearings.....

anybody have any input...
I sure could use some help making the decision...

How is the long block "not an OEM product"? A long block would include the heads, correct? A short block is minus the heads (as far as I know). Are you saying that the short block is a Chrysler part and the long block is from some random supplier?

I would go for the long block, assuming it's OEM....but then again, "OEM" didn't do you all that much good the first time around!

I still think you should go for the option that will get you the most number of new parts in the fix, and I think that would be a long block. However, I would definitely want to know where the engine is being sourced from. Just my .02.

The long block is not OEM.. it is aftermarket... but has a 3 year 100,000 mile warranty.... I am leaning this direction...
Thanks for your .02... At this point, I will take any and all input...

It's a shame you can't negotiate with them to maybe pay some of the bill yourself in exchange for swapping in a Hemi.

Good luck with everything. Post back the final decision and end results (after the work is done).

Wait a minutes, when I bought my JKU brand-new in early 2008, it came with a 3yr/36k warranty and LIFETIME warranty on power train. This is clearly a power train issue. Why would a third party warranty company be involved to begin with? Or, were you not the original owner? Or, did Chrysler stop this practice?


Sorry if I missed it in an earlier post.

I am not the original owner... but I was told by the dealer that the warranty would carry over... obviously not...

I thought that since it is only 1,000 miles outside the warranty that they would at least help... since this seems to be a bad tolerance issue from the factory... but Chrysler does not want to help...

So.. we will now see if the extended warranty company will help.. or I just pay for it all myself...

Yikes, sorry buddy.

Hang in there & get the new engine and move on. It's just a vehicle.

Lifetime power train warranty applies only to the original owner.

I hate those damn lying dealers!

WOW... just heard from the dealer.. the extended warranty company wants to find a used, yes, used motor with less miles than my JK... I know that they will not find one, because they also want the seller, i.e. junk yard to warranty the motor and install cost...

This is just getting really sad...

STAY TUNED...

Yup, third party warranties are horrible. Who is yours through?

AEV sells 3.8's with next to no miles on them for $1,500. Probably less than the cost of the extended warranty.

Try to get hooked up with a shop that does JK Hemi installs. They're constantly pulling motors out and selling them.

So, the warranty company wants a junkyard to warranty the motor they're pulling out of a dead Jeep? WTF?

I feel for you Bud. This really sucks, but Its not surprising for the aftermarket warranty company to only replace an old motor with a used motor and not totally unrealistic to expect a motor warranty from an automotive recycler. Our local recyclers (bone yards) always offer 3-6 month warranties on engines, dependent on mileage of course. You will still get a better motor then what you have at no cost to you.
