Oh like it would go well now

Went to put in coolant, leak at the thermostat. Pulled it back apart and the new gasket got trashed already. Looks like the stat slipped a bit.

Got a new gasket so I'll try it again. Oil got changed too.

Hoping the 2.5" flex pipe I bought works for a temporary exhaust patch, to slip over the spot I cut. Gotta get everything redone between the downpipe and muffler. Its touching the floor in a few spots thanks to some bashing off road.

Sounds like they are good people. I've always seen jeeps out front of their shop. How'd you like them?

They were great! Definitely recommend them and will use them again. Probably going to see how much they'll want to get the AC working in the Jeep again.

That's good!

Been debating if I want to do the blend door for the defrost to feet or see how much it would be to have it done. I know it's like a 6-8hr job....

It’s alive!

Got it started tonight after doing the thermostat a third time. Kept slipping down, never had that issue before.

Still open header but I needed to fire it up. Idled smooth. Debating just towing it to the exhaust shop instead of trying to figure out a temporary connection
