JEEP=Junk Each and Every Part

So....I got the body work and paint done....over three $K, new wheels and tires...another $2000...got the gears and lockers bought and installed, oops there goes another two G's...new suspension lift and shocks should be here mid to end of next week....$1500....not to mention Mastercraft seats, instruments, and various and sundry "extras"....NOT including the two years and hundreds of hours of labor...I have over twenty five large into this fine rig.

And tonight she starts making noise.....at first like a lifter tapping.....then it gets a bit louder....I just changed the oil...so I add some Marvel Mystery Oil....figuring it's a stuck lifter....no help there. I run her some more it's getting louder....but at least it's consistant with RPM's...break out the stethescope(as if I need it at this point)....a noise that from fourty feet away can still be heard over the rumbling of the 40 Series Flowmasters is eminating from the lower end around the #8 cylinder! Will it never end?

Anyone wanna buy a "custom" Jeep that just needs just a "little" to finish?


edit:After re-reading my post, I wanted to add that I'm not bragging about the money spent on this rig like it is spare change...I busted my ass the last two plus years to get it where it's at.....almost done and clapped out motor.........

Re: JEEP=Junk Each and Every Part

I had a jeep wrangler '87, and I did the whole "lift +hardware = 10K. every time i looked at the thing it broke something. rear ends, springs, water pumps, drivers sear (broke in half) windsheild 4X in a winter, lights, rear tail lights never need to ground right, plates would fall off, PVC gets sucked into the motor, new motor, new fuel guages, and sending unit, new front fendars, total paint job (did it myself, came out factory) about 1K in chrome parts...hindges, grill inserts, bla bla, Warn wintch....and crap alway broke. I tossed a new motor in it before I sold it. what a pile.

Team Honda - well sorta...

Re: JEEP=Junk Each and Every Part

I had a '78 Jeep C-10 pickup. Paid $800 for it and beat the hell out of it a couple of times a month for 3 years. Sold it in March for $400. It got around 5-6 miles/gallon, 2 qts of oil for every tank. I needed to add a can of Sea Foam to each tank or the plugs would foul. No exaust behind the glass packs. Heater died. It always started, turned heads.

Re: JEEP=Junk Each and Every Part

oh, come on now, what do you expect from a sport where bashing a fender is expected and rolling upside down is not uncommon. Whether you're rock crawling or mud running your gonna break stuff. Hell, I broke 5 front axle shafts in one trip. I'm getting good at fixing stuff. I can drop the t-18 out of my jeep in under 30 minutes. I've done it with one hand (other hand was all bandaged up after cutting a finger off). I just got back from a nice trip down the power lines in my 2000 cherokee. Didn't break anything!

I know your pain, my wrangler has been a work in progress for the past 5 years and has probably close to 30 grand put into it, I don't want to add it up or I'll cry. The only thing stock on the whole jeep is the frame. Got a new fuel injected 4.0HO, t-18, dana 300 with 4:1 low range, dana 44 front, dana 60 rear, soa w/4.5" springs, arb's front and rear, 5.89 gears. 38.5" boggers, warn winch, full roll cage, onboard air compressor, onboard welder, and the list goes on. I use it maybe 3 times a year but can't seem to get rid of it, I've spent so much time doing it all myself I couldn't get nearly as much for it as I think it's worth!!

Just keep fixing and wheeling, it's worth it!!

Re: JEEP=Junk Each and Every Part

My biggest problem is that I have an addiction...far worse than the bike. I bought the bike new added some goodies and ride...all is well. With the Jeep, I need to rebuild the engine...simple you say...buy a short block for $800 or so...easy enough but if I'm gonna do that may as well have the heads done...if I'm going to have the heads done...a port job and clean doesnt add "that" much. If the heads are getting cleaned up...gotta add a cam...gonna do a cam, should also add roller rockers...them comes the high output oil pump because AMC V8s have low idle oil pressure concerns....gonna do all that then a chrome muffler bearing is a must do........my $800 shortblock is now going to cost me probably three times as much....and I can't say no.... Prolly should start looking for a twelve step program....

Re: JEEP=Junk Each and Every Part

and when you get everything all done you realize the beast is too big to ever drive anywhere on the road so you have to buy another jeep to drive. Then you realize it'd be fun to take the cherokee offroad a few times so you have to start all over again, believe me I know exactly what you mean!

Jeep 12 step program for you fumb! Seriously, sorry to hear what you are experiencing - sounds rather expensive.

Re: JEEP=Junk Each and Every Part

And to think, I actually miss my JEEP. '84 CJ7 I6 4speed. The kid offered me twice what it was worth, I couldn't say no. But I sure do miss it at times.
