Mine had the U-Haul hitch, and they replaced it with factory, including the bumper trim and plug. Also, I had the skid plate installed already... so I was surprised they did all that.

Finally got around to replacing the leaky valve cover gasket on the Jeep's passenger side. Took three times as long as the driver side due to tight fit and interference. Thank you to the how to...

It's been doing that since you bought it? I wouldn't let a Service Adviser have a moment's rest until he addressed it. From the sound, I'd guess a bad shock or bushing somewhere. Could be just a...

Go test drive another couple of them. If you don't feel comfortable, don't buy it. There are lots to choose from and it's a big investment.

Thank you!
I slept on it and listened again, decided it probably wasn't the bearing and was likely the chain slack as HarryH3 described. So I just put fluid in it and put it back in. If it is going...

Yes, the reason is to find out if this bearing has failed. I'm asking for WJ'ers to listen and weigh in if this is a normal sound on the 247. I understand the chain slack, but I'm not certain that...

If you've had your 247 out, please watch this and let me know if you think it sounds normal or like a bad bearing. It's been 20 years since I've had a...

After getting a death wobble a few days ago, for the first time in nearly 89K miles of driving this WJ, I decided to spring for the Red Head steering gear. Installed it today.
It was pretty easy to...

Just curious, in all the cases mentioned above, had the HOAT coolant been used? I thought the HOAT was supposed to avoid corrosion!

I didn't see a mention of sway bar end links.
I had the same handling issue when I put on my IRO 3", but I didn't have the extended end links installed yet (espcially the rears). It made a very...

I did not do anything with the motor mounts, although in retrospect, that may have made the exhaust bolts easier to deal with.

As stated above, it's probably worth it to replace the chain guides....

Here are pics of my tensioners. The chain was not loose at all. I would figure this out before you button it up. I can't imagine shaving the gasket surface a couple thousandths would cause that...

At this point, I still have a driveline vibration, and have thrown quite a bit of time and money into it. It's...

The timing chain tool is required if you remove the timing chain cover, which is the way the FSM requires. Some have said that they did the job without removing the timing chain cover. If you can do...

I'm getting ready to do the same. I hadn't thought about AC seals. Take some photos and give an update if you come up with anything else!
