As you realized, your upper panels are not actually "agate." EVERYTHING in the 5.9L is actually agate, including the grab handles. (Most 5.9Ls, however, came with the sunroof, and if you got a...

I had a couple of long conversations with George when I was deciding whether to rebuild/build my 231 into an HD, or buy a built 231HD or 242HD from him and/or a distributor of his. I ultimately...

We don't have locking mechanisms at the front hubs, which means when in 2WD, the front R&P is spinning, which turns the front driveshaft, which turns the t-case input shaft, which turns the chain,...

I've also driven a '98 that only had 80K miles, and a '95 with 150K miles. All had the same results.

Don't get me wrong; they'll do highway speeds. Just don't expect to pass people easily.

Agree that the 4.0L is slow and doesn't get much better mileage. You find yourself driving around with the pedal down on the floor all the time to make up for the lack of power. As for mileage, the...

The FelPro gasket has rubber ridges impregnated, which I think work better with the steel since it flexes a little at each bolt head. The first one I did also leaked at one of the bolts, and I...

I RARELY go to the local yards. Hilltop is inconvenient for me in both location and hours, I'm not driving to the Valley unless I'm going wheeling, and Northwest is really proud of their prices (as...

It's actually a pretty solid drivetrain. The 4.0L can withstand a tremendous amount of abuse and neglect and easily come back to life. The AX-15 is pretty stout, and well matched to the 4.0L, with...

Nope. Just stating that, in your own words, with "brain power, tools, time and only one person" it can still be done. Therefore, it doesn't fall into the category of "everything else." (You also...

I tried CLR and it didn't do me any good. I think a PO had clogged the core with BarsLeak or a similar product. Coolant went through it, but no matter what I tried (FlowKooler pump, EMP/Stewart...
