New member post. 02 WJ
Hey ya’ll brand new to the forum. I’m a mechanic at a full-service, independent shop and I currently drive an 04 f250, 87 Volvo 740 and a 12 Honda Sabre cycle.
Just picked up an 02 4.0 this week w/ 180k miles; super clean and runs like a top. I paid a whopping $150 from a buddy who’s shipping off to the navy soon and cannot pay to store it so we both got a killer deal I suppose. Already have gone through and done fuel filter, rad hoses, t-stat and housing, spark plugs, front&rear diff’s , t-case fluid, trans fluid, and painted the bumpers and side plastics with some rust oleum bed armor.
I have a rough country 4” xtreme lift on its way, all new spring insulators, rear upper arm bushings, 4 tie rod ends with center sleeves and pro comp 51 rock crawler wheels.
Still deciding on what tires and size to go with, i’m waiting on the wheels so I can try a couple different tires we stock here for fitment.
I’m open to any suggestions for upgrades and other PM/service I should do before I get her registered and on the road.
