    WJ

    I'm looking at a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ with a 4.0 automatic 242 transfer case. Running drives really good it's got a hundred sixty four thousand miles on it. It does show some fluids leaking underneath which I'm going to get checked out however it just had the valve cover gasket replace it has no codes thrown at all. I know this setup has run on several different platforms. I would like everybody's opinions pros and cons on a setup and something like this please and thank you.IMG_20190215_130425475.jpg

    I'm having second thoughts!

    When I got my WJ I specifically looked for one with a 4.0, My opinion it’s a better engine than the 4.7. If it’s been well maintained and has records to show it I wouldn’t be worried about the mileage.

    Mine has 235K on it. The engine runs perfectly, the only issue I have is with the trans. And that’s because the previous owner(s) didn’t have the bands adjusted when it was serviced. The 42re gets a bad rep, but if it’s taken care of properly it’s actually a decent transmission.

    Believe it or not I am going to build and drive it. I have actually been salivating over your build thread and really like your WJ. Always have. Some of the options I'm thinking for one are the notch custom fender flares, Ruby takeoffs like the ones I'm running right now on my JK, a 4.5 in Rusty's short arm because I'll be doing it in a parking lot if I get a house I'll do the long arm kit., Highline front bumper and maybe even a custom tire carrier in the rear too, DB corners...

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.
