I hope she keeps running wonderfully good now!

Sorry to hear all this Karen. Did they charge you for the oil pump drive shaft? There is quite a thread going on the Jeep forum about this.

Oh indeed they charged me!!
Theres a technical bulletin for these in the 05 and 06 TJ's - but mine is an 04. Thank goodness....It appears as if the problem is reoccurring in those 2 years....I hope mine is fixed for a very long time!!

karen, sorry to hear about all the trouble, hope its the last of it for a while!

i dropped mine off with Joe at Absolute Offroad today
- fix exhaust leak
- add 3/4" spacer in rear, as it's starting to sag a little
- find out what's going click-click in my suspension (i think rear shock bushings)
- oil/filter change and lube everything
- take of front t-case yoke and measure everything so we can order a flange-style yoke for it. then it will match the rear of the t-case. then i can get a single spare driveshaft made that will work front or rear.

Number 7 cut off the ends of my purdy chrome bumper the other day....at my request...and so I could get the tires onto the rock when needed. Then I got all inspired and installed an LED overhead light on the frame....that goes from the stock roll bar to the top of the windshield....again from George. Those LEDs aren't all that impressive in the daylight, but they sure are bright when it is dark. Great for reading the Wells book at night.
