Did a 4" RC myself. If the spring hanger bolts are frozen a 4" grinder with a cutoff wheel is your friend. Sean made a great point. Every Jeep will respond differently to being lifted. I had to cut...

No codes, but I'm not surprised. Just my luck. At any rate I let the engine get good & hot & went to town with carb cleaner around the intake. Sure enough it started stumbling When I soaked the rear...

Great observation NR, I'm suspicious that the noise very well could be a vacuum leak. It won't make this racket under load when there is no vacuum, only at idle. It'll do it if I go up in RPM's VERY...

Check the CPS, look for a pinched wire. Your symptoms sound very similar to a failing/bad crank sensor.

My poor 2.5 isn't happy

Guys, have a listen to my poor old 4 banger. It started making this hellacious squeal Monday. At first it was intermittent, but now it's there all the time & getting louder. I don't think she has...

He's correct. dieselbombers has quite a bit of info on 617's & 617 swaps. They're a solid 115 horse motor in factory dress. You can get quite a bit of free power doing simple injector pump...

You got a lot of money tied up in that Jeep. A 4BT would finish it nicely.

Also, I'm not sure if you are aware, A swap that is gaining popularity is the OM617 Mercedes turbo diesel. They came in...

Don't get me wrong, you can get parts for them. You can pretty much do anything you want to them. OEM parts are still available & plentiful. Aftermarket cost is a big factor as, like I said, the 4.0...

WELCOME!

I would use a small razor blade, like an Exacto knife, & remove just enough liner until you can get to the threads. Once you get to the threads you can use a tap & chase them clean like...

IMO, one of the biggest problems with the 4.0 is its limited aftermarket support. The 4.0 is only appealing to Jeep people where a small block V8 is pretty much universal. Everyone loves a V8, but...

Glad you like the gear swap. Best bang for the buck by far even if it is a little spendy. That looks like a good list for upgrading the ignition. Swapping to a 4.0 throttle body really woke my 2.5...

Are you expierencing torque steer? If you accelerate, does it pull to one side & pull to the other when you let off the gas to shift?

I don't know of anyone that has. Monstaliner is just like any other spray on liner, it expands & contracts with changes in temparture. I don't know how well clear would hold up to something like that.

The 2 biggest advantages are reliability & 2-low. With the posi lock, you have the ability to use low range without locking the front axle. Comes in handy every now & then.

It sounds to me like your 2.5 is tired. Hopefully the tune up will help a little. Might run a compression test while you're at it. Regear to 4:88's is the correct method to regain lost power from...
