Oh, and the material on your sump magnet didn't look all too bad in my eyes. I've seen worse on transmissions over the years that were still working ok. Not saying it's perfect, but run the sludge...

I just turned 209k miles on my '05 WK w/ 5.7L in it. Still squats-n-gets when I mash down on the fun pedal! Like, 2005JGC said, it all comes down to maintenance.

You have the (5)45RFE transmission and it's the same one used behind just about any Dodge/Jeep V8 from '99-'10. Used units can be had for a few $100. I recently bought one w/...

Oh, the WK doesn't tow an RV. Tows the boat mainly ('99 Four Winns H180 - 18' open bow). Our RV is a 31' Class C Motorhome. Unfortunately, I can't even tow the WK behind the motorhome! Because...

Picked up a set of factory tow hooks from Pick-n-Pull this past weekend. Not the chrome ones either (don't like that look). $15 for both! :grin2:

It was strange how it happened, though. Driving to our RV storage and things were fine. Turned the WK off when I got there, no more than 10 minutes, when I started it back up there were...

I replace just the front shocks on mine a year ago. I figured for the price difference between full assemblies and just shocks, my labor costs more than justified it. But, you do get new springs,...
