Default Picked up #21 yesterday...

Its a 99 4.0 5 speed and has motor issues. I'm not too sure yet if the motor is fixable the previous owner replaced the heads and says it has low compression on one cylinder. I'm not sure if he actually knows how to troubleshoot a problem and I haven't had time yet. Anyway here's a couple pics...

Do you rent that u-haul dolly everytime? If you do, you should buy one for yourself. It would pay for itself in no time at all.

I started on the tailgate this evening and pulled the rear bumper to straighten out the dents.

I already got the motor straightened out. It was a case of the wrong firing order nad valve seals were sticking. After driving it a few times its running good...
