    ZJ Hello all.....

    I have "lurked" here for a while and have posted a couple of questions but never said hey. I have a 98 ZJ Limited with a 5.2L got it for a song....$400. Looking at the underside I knew it had a couple issues....oil pan, valve covers, intake, timing cover were all leaking pretty bad. The tranny cooler lines were leaking and well as most every seal on the trans.

    So here is what I have done to it so far. New exhaust, replaced timing chain and all the gaskets and seals associated with that, oil pan and gasket, and rear main. Complete tune-up. Recently rebuilt the 44RE trans and the NP249 T-case.


    Here is what is left to do... Shocks all around, ball joints, front and rear diff service, and brakes.


    So far I have only put about $2500 into it.

    BTW....I LOVE my Jeep!!!!!!!

    Here's your second official welcome aboard!

    Did you do the 44RE yourself?

    Yes, I did. I had a 4x8 table and I kept major components together as I dis-assembled it. I also found a trans shop that cleaned to case for me and gave me a few pointers. All-in-all It was a good experience.
