JEEP HISTORY
this is my first jeep period. i was
inspired to buy it because a close friend
of mine has a modified 2000 cherokee. i
bought this jeep in need of a good
cleaning and new head gaskets for 2k. i
fully cleaned and "fixed" the
interior. while doing the engine work the
i discovered that this is not the original
engine. the jeep was said to have around
120k miles on it. well there was still
cross hatching in the cylinder walls and
no lip from the top compression ring.
after replacing the head gaskets, i drove
for 20 minutes lost oil pressure on the
highway and spun 3 rod bearings and 2 main
bearings, all on crank side. i pulled the
engine all the way out and built on a
stand with new crank, 2 new rods and
pistons, all new bearings and newly
machined bearing surfaces, and the updated
melling oil pump that runs at 45 psi idle
and up to 70 psi at wot, along with lots
of extra new pieces and goodies, slightly
ported and polishid heads, new valve seals
and valves, new intake. the cause of the
original loss of oil pressure was a
mistake on my part, a piece of head gasket
material clogged the pickup tube. none the
less the jeep is running great now. very
happy with it all around. i have projector
head lights and fog lights with 6000k true
HID in the low beam and fog locations and
4300K in the high beam location. i also
have a 1500w power inverter
