First time servicing my 4.0 TJ
Just finished my stereo system install and it came out great!
Did a new Kenwood head unit, new 4" Boston dash speakers and new 6" sound bar speakers as well as a great self contained 8" powered subwoofer by Sound Ordnance. $409 delivered with all the goods from Crutchfield. The little bass box fits under the drivers seat perfectly and it CRANKS!!
Sounds so good! Very satisfied especially for how much I spent.
Next up is its first major service. Was wondering what fluids you all recommend as I plan on changing diff fluid, manual gearbox and transfer case.
She's a 97 4.0 with a Dana 44 ( according to you guys and my own online research) and 122,000 miles.
Also in the plans-
-a full rear drum shoe replace and service. My E brake has to be cranked fully to engage and even then if the hill is steep enough she will roll. Any advice on brand of shoes and servicing the drums?
- I saw a thread on spark plugs. What says the forum for my model jeep?
- she is going up on jack stands and I am going hard with the wire wheel at the existing rust under it. I used Por15 in the past with great results. Opinions?
- what about other quick mods or necessary service stuff ?
I just replaced the air filter with a purolater and added seafoam to my last fill up.
Thoughts , Opinions are always valued? Thank you!
