    Not worth fixing? Reason I'm asking cause I would consider fixing.
    DID I MENTION MY RIG IS FOR SALE?

    Honestly the head gasket is definitely blown and I don't know if I did any other engine damage if I'm being transparent. I've got spare parts for it and I'd leave the budget boost on plus the roof rack and stickers. Sagging headliner and bad temp control panel are the biggest other issues other than the speedo sensor being intermittent. I know you've been looking for one so I'd make you a deal if you were willing. I could start it up with it cool on Sunday and give the engine a listen.

    Like I said, if it was the 4.0 I would just do it but I've pulled the intake three times now in the last couple months and I'm fed up. I have a spare temp control panel and Vic. I would be pulling the sound system out though since I may have spent more than it's worth when I first got it. I also would toss in another top end gasket set for ya and the valve cover gaskets are brand new felpro blue silicone. Since I work for Napa I could do a sending off bundle of parts 😂😂.

    Too bad you have had all the troubles with it. Once I sell my rig i'll be able to buy something per boss. I do know I want a ZJ or WJ. It is very tempting getting a V8 however, I would welcome a 4.0. I am in Eugene. PM me the Craigslist add and/or Facebook I'll check it out. Just do not have the place to do work on it and would have to take it somewhere. I do not mind doing a lift in a parking lot tho....done it before. I am looking at a very clean 1999 WJ with a 4.0 at the moment. Just gotta sell the JK!

    New ZJ in the family

    The chapter on yeti closed last week. I pull the engine out of her and gave the rest to the scrap yard. Got to the point where It was just taking up space in my driveway and I couldn’t deal with it nor did I have the time to.

    I had the same problem with my 1996 ZJ, it was the idle position sensor, 5 minute swap and I had no more problems. I actully swappy the idle position sensor and I think it was the throttle body sensor.. I bought my ZJ brand new and had her for 14 years, I put around 327k miles on her. the only thing that want bad besides the sensors mentioned was the temp sensor.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
