I don't know if it was that large, doesn't sound like major damage at this point from what I have read about. After being in an area a few times were EF4/5 tornadoes went though, that would flatten everything.

Re: Important

Cam bearings, rod bearings, main bearings and rings all in one mud puddle.

I drove it for 2 months 40 miles round trip with the needle on the peg. The 4.0 that Dan has was the replacement I ordered from a JY with 48k miles on it before I knew peeps on .

It doesn't need fixing, it needs thicker oil.

Re: Important

How much lift would I get out of making a bastard leaf pack out of 2 sets of xj springs. Everything I have found so far is using s10 springs. Needing to beef up the rear of the jeep a little bit. Maybe even lift it an inch

Re: Important

Mines been on Rotella since Ive been driving it. The rear main seal went out on me and puked oil at about 3 quarts per 15 miles. I stabbed a high volumn pump in it and a set of rod bearings for good measure. It used to carry 60 lbs cold and then about 25 hot idle and would build when it was revved. Now its about 40lbs cold and fluctuates between 20 and 40 hot and doesnt move.

It hates its life in winter time. Pecks on the top end for 10 minutes before it starts flowing up there. Its getting a block heater this fall.

Re: Important

Just over the thickness on the extra leafs you add, depending on how worn out they are.

Try it.

I got about 1.5"- 2" out of two well worn packs using all but the overload and one other leaf, I don't remember which other leaf I left out though. Thinking it was the third leaf.

Re: Important

anyone know anything about gas grills?

The knobs on mine are getting really hard to turn and one has decided to only turn half way now.

Try having someone else turn them, maybe you are getting weak.

Really, I have nothing to add

I got about 1.5-2" just adding average wear main leafs with the eyes cut off, on my 94. They've held up great for over 5 years now, loading it down with hundreds of pounds of tools and supplies.


And the 213k motor has 40psi at hot idle, 60+ cruising, on whatever oil Menards has on sale.

Re: Important

Do you think it would still give an inch or 2 of lift even with the add a leaf I have in there now? I know I should just buy new leafs but it won't be in the cards for a while and just trying to help out the rear suspension a little bit.
