soon2bmarried as far as the 2.5 being a stupid little motor i dont really care its being kept in the truck for a reason and if i was gonna do a motor swap i already have a ls1 sitting on an engine stand so have motor otions but wedding is next week and until that is over my budget is tight

crtaylor WOW! how in the world did those little squirlls do that? Ive seen some blown up engines in my day. but never saw this ,that had to be a bad crank from the start.

FirstJeep4Me Geez, don't people use duct tape anymore? What's the world coming to?

It needs JB Weld of course.
I thought about that, but I was afraid someone might take me seriously
