Default A Tired 2.5L TJ Gets Life.

Well i traded my xj for this. I knew the 4 banger would be weak but god dam! my mini bike has more balls and that's just a Briggs and Straton. Its time to rip it out and put in a v8. project details will be more in depth tomorrow when my buddy comes over with the v8, harness and all the stuff and we start planning. Heres what she looks like.

Be careful with the D35/V8 combo. What engine are you going with?

it has a bad oil leaking problem from multiple spots, a blown head gasket and possible bad rings, it runs and drives fine but squirts oil out for about 10 mins after i turn it off and oil got in the radiator once. i was gonna just wipe off the oil and sell it to some guy like the guy who i bought it from did to me.

just a tip, thats what happends when you wheel n deal with cars. Some check out while others are more of a lemon. Thats not the way to go about handeling the problem, lying to somebody else and ripping them off. you seem to have $$ so fix it right and then sell it would prob be the best idea

You should have been following along from the beginning, you might understand then.

Good thing you underlined might. I re-read and would STILL assume he was being sarcastic. Guess I am retarted. Funny I didn't meet you in your "special" classes though if that's the case.
