Yah, thats what I plan on doing Ryan, I think that I will have no problem with doing it that way. I guess I am just looking for anything that could make it go along quicker, - maybe thought someone would have a "trick of the trade..."

How are things in BR, sorry I never made it back down to see you guys, I welded up a bumper for the Cherokee and it took all of the free time I had. It came out nicely, you'll see it soon I'm sure.

Gonna kinda hijack the thread....I just purchased an 88 with a 4.0 and it also needs an oil pan gasket. I'm assuming the rear main is a two piece...any differences between his jeep and mine?
