I can't believe they sell just the "O" ring. I figured you'd have to buy a new transfer case or something. lol
Well for future reference then, plan on about $7 at the dealer for one. The only thing we didn't try was one of those o-ring "kits" you can get from places like harbor freight and such....very well may be one in there...but we didn't have one of those handy in the parking lot of our apartment complex.....and after driving around to every Napa, Advance, and Autozone in the area with no luck...bit the bullet and went to the dealer.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Well....the weekend isn't even over yet and it's gotten progressively worse as far as projects on the Jeep go.

-Got a shelf built for the back to hide my stuff and clean things up a bit...no problem
-Changed the Oil...other than making a huge mess, no problem
-Started out to fix the sticking rear latch before it got completely stuck, and it got completely stuck ...big problem considering all my stuff is in the back now
-Center the front axle some more and adjust the toe which has been way out of spec for the last 2 weeks.....couldn't get the stupid adjusting nut loose on the trac bar, thus it's still off center by about half an inch, and the toe is still out.

And it's back to work for me 1st shift in the morning....maybe i'll play with it some more tomorrow afternoon. This rear latch is going to be LOADS of fun

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Spent the whole weekend camping with the family and some friends. No wheeling but there was alot of time spent out on the 2 boats and jet ski. And I've got the sun burn to prove it.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

sealed two of the three oil leaks causing my Heep to be parked on the street. Oil filter adapter and distributor o-rings needed mucho helpo!I had spares of both, so the project was pretty simple-- install everything on the nice, clean, painted items and bolt 'em up!! Does anyone know if the oil filter adapter o-rings are different for a 4.0H.O. vs. a Renix 4.0?? I had a beotch of a time getting everything seated and finally used a genaric set of o-rings I had in the garage. I'm almost pissed enough to go back to Chryco dealer and see whats up with 'em-- the package was opened when I got it, and only two of the three were even close to correct. As it is, I only ended up using one of the three from the kit..?..?.. oh well, it's nice to only have a RMS leaving one-two drops each night. That can wait 'til the new motor is ready.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

I cut and folded my rear quarters, replaced my CB, made a new CB antenna mount, and moved my soundbar up over the front seats. All in all, a good weekend. On the agenda for next weekend is replacing the secondary e-fan, stainless brake lines, and a couple other odds and ends things prepping for Mountainside.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

I trimmed the rear bumper on the WJ to keep it from eating my tires.

I also got a little work done on the XJ. I trimmed the front fenders, put my tail lights back in, and replaced the hatch weather strip. I need to get some 32s to check for rubbing issues on the BB.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

I put in some hood vents from a New Yorker, dropped the transfer case and trimmed the rear wheel wells. I also changed my spark plugs and air filter, what a difference it made!
