remember how I wanked up my oil pan?

Well, it's time to change it.



I have the new pan and gasket, but I'm a little leary about the fact that it looks like I have to take out the starter and the exhaust. I can't seem to find a repair manual on the 2005 wrangler, so I'm in the dark.

Anyone have some sage advice?

Exaust is easy. Starter is 2 bolts and a few wires. remember to diconnect the battery before removing the starter as to not short out anything.

The starter is pretty simple to pull off. There are 2 bolts and it will practically fall out. So don't be under it. The exhaust can be tricky depending on how much rust is covering your bolts. You should definitely replace the exhaust gasket between the collectors and the *Y* pipe. Both are really simple and go back in just as easy. Make sure you don't over torque the bolts going into the oil pan. They are specific so you don't squash the new gasket. Although, I have no recollection of what the specs are.

The muffler is just as bad. That's what I get for hanging out with guys who have 37's.

Thanks everyone, especially Nic. Now I won't have to lay under there and kick the starter and exhaust off with my foot.

Actually, it happened when I was forced off my line because of a couple of quads. I got over to the side for them to pass and found myself in a bad place. I don't remember dropping on anything, but not only is the oil pan crushed, but the muffler, the rear sway bar (I know, it's way up there), and the rear passenger control arm are all bunged up.

Nope, I was center trail headed down, they were headed up. Nowhere for them to go so I moved off my line.

next time make the quads wait, jeeps are more important

and remember the unwritten rules of the road...the vehicle that is bigger/ bigger tires gets the right of way
