Awe man that's not very inspiring knowing that I'm only 1/2 way threw its life cycle, I'm waiting for it to die so I can get something bigger lol. But I do love my little 4-banger to death

Right now im sitting at 115K in my 94YJ. The PO didnt seem to take care of it to well as the coolant was the worst I had ever seen. Flushed the coolant, Did a complete Tune-up: Plugs(which actually looked pretty good) Wires, Dist, Fuel Filter, Sea Foam. She seem to be running pretty strong. I do have some tapping going on and I think I am going to have to put new rings in, but hey I'll drive it until it dies.

95 with 220K plus. I had a piston skirt break off of number three cylinder, snatched the head off, replaced the piston & rings and stuck the head back on it. Still ticking along and just gotta keep it running until I finish gathering parts and scatter the whole Jeep...
