This is true. My wife backed into another car a few years back in a parking garage. I called the police just to get a report of the incident for insurance purposes, but the dispatch told me that since it was on private property the police wouldn't do anything. We took pictures and left contact info. Never heard back from the owner of the other car.

Awe, apparently my post didn't load the first time.

I cracked my dads radiator open..

It needed to be replaced anyways, the previous owners never flushed the system and it was all silty.

That's okay. Just give the link to your wife for Father's Day present. Not sure why it would be more, parts houses I've checked with seemed to think it would be the same one for either.

idk about other years, but I know for a fact that the only difference between the 4.0 and the 2.5 in the 97 versions is that the tanks are plastic on one and metal on the other. they still both mount the exact same way. either one should work id imagine.

That one is a 2000 4.0 and its top was plastic. It's being towed to a local guy who runs his business out of his house. He said he would have it replaced, flushed and filled by the end of the day.

Now THAT, is impressive.

Transfer case is back together and back in the jeep, skid plate is back on as well as the drive shafts. To-Do for tomorrow night: fill T-case with ATF, adjust parking brake and seal coolant neck to engine... I can't wait to drive it... I'm so tired of looking at the underside while laying on my back on concrete... been since November...

Got gears changed from 3.73 to 4.56 and added a Spartan locker to the font differential. This is the best thing I've done to my Jeep. It's an awesome difference.
