You'll never get the cracks to seal for very long, the coolant inside the radiator is under pressure, it's time for a new radiator. Not to mention you'd never get new upper/lower tanks to seal...

No problem on the Doran/Odessa loop with that configuration, you'll love it and have a lot of fun.

Dooz85, how is your Jeep set up for offroading? Size tires, lift, armor, etc. We've gotten some lightly modded Jeeps through the Doran/Odessa loop without excessive difficulty.

The D35 isn't always a bad axle for offroading with smaller tires and no locker but the Rubicon trail is long enough, tough enough, and remote enough that I'd never do that particular trail with a...

Yes great arms but wow $$$$! I personally would not pay extra for double-adjustable arms, they should be a set and forget kind of component.

Because it works well, protects the cooling system, and lasts a long time. Zerex G-05 is great stuff, just make sure to only mix it with distilled water and not tap water. Some G-05 comes premixed.

That multiple cylinder misfire is a common problem for '97-98 4.0L engines, many of which got a weak set of valve springs from a bad batch. My guess is that if your upstream 02 sensor is ok, or if...

I loved my '97 (stolen 5 years ago) and would rather have it than my current '04. There are a few minor issues with early TJs that were likely sorted out on that one by now. If it looks good and...
