I patched it together...i didnt replace the headgasket since the main part of the gasket is perfectly fine and doing its job it seemed overkill to tear the motor apart and replace it. I got the oil leak to stop 99% of the time and when it does leak its very very slight and for a trail only rig thats good enough for me.
Looks like i'm gonna be going to rocks and valleys early august and the 3 more days at windrock over labor day. Can't wait. I love wheeling this thing!
