Aw man, what a drag! That happens and I've never quite understood why the secondary latch doesn't prevent it. Seems like that is exactly why it is there, but, not entirely effective at doing the...

No slots? That might be different on a 4.0, or because of the serpentine. Not sure on that. Do you not have the little extender between the fan and the pulley? Actually, it would be between the...

Ever so slightly?

Just take a rat-tail file and slot the holes a little. It is held centered by the spud in the center, so it isn't going to matter. And the fan is slotted already, as you know.

And just a friendly suggestion, your questions will make more sense if you learn to use proper terms for items.

Yeah, I Loctite them too (just blue though). They are fine thread on one end and coarse on the other for a reason. Ideally you want them to stay in the pump flange when you remove the nuts. ...

I think siva ^ was trying to say, jam 2 nuts together on a stud. Then use a wrench to back out the stud. That has always worked for me.

Only thing I can add is, the stud is usually loctited in,...

Because the design is a spring loaded detent, and springs will lose force when compressed over long periods of time.

Yeah, looks like he replaced the nutserts, and did a bangup job on it too.

You also have a skid plate drop. Which is why you need longer than standard bolts.

That Stant is fine, but the stuff about the valve is a bunch of malarkey.

Drill a hole in it. Any brand is fine, but Stant is a good one. Position that hole at the top when you install, and...

Some guys would look at it that way, and there isn't a right or wrong answer. But my opinion is, I don't trust anyone else to install those upgrades to my satisfaction, and just as importantly,...

Just see how it shifts and listen for any noises. Check for leaks.

Theoretically you could inspect the sealant around the joints in the trans to see if they look original. The silicone tends to...

I wouldn't worry too much about the D35. You're either going to swap it, or you're not. If you want an 8.8, just do that, or at worst you find another D35 if or when needed, and they are dirt...

Book value goes out the window with something that has been lovingly modified like that. Yes it is overpriced, but if you like all of those things that have been done to it, it might be worth it to...

I prefer the click over the beam. Never owned a beeping style. But the one nice thing about the beam style is that you are less likely to go past the set point accidentally. With the click style,...

If the nutserts are in good shape, just run a 1/2-13 tap thru them. There will be plenty of thread left to do the job.

I wondered too, because checking thread pitch, without a thread pitch gauge, is not an easy thing to do.

Previous owner follies ... It is possible that faced with skid plate bolts rusted in place,...

There is a pretty good video on YouTube. I think it was that redneck garage guy, IIRC.

My experience is that putting the soft top up/down once is about all anyone ever wants to do. From then on...

Having been through all that myself...

Those knock-off YJ style all come from the same place, and they all suck. Cheap wavy glass. No convex on the passenger side. Poor pivot attachment at the...
