Hello all! I'm new to the this, but I've recently took on the project of refreshing my 315,000 mile, dependable Jeep.

This Jeep is an old friend, my mom bought her new, dad named her, and I stole her lol. This has been a fantastic machine. All factory motor, and tranny.

This whole refresh started after a slow leak that became annoying. Well actually, it all started as a caliper job, but I started looking around, why not? W

The installation went somewhat smooth, when you get the last 20 years of oil off,lol. I had two gaskets for the oil pump, opted for the felpro. Also, I've saw write-ups suggesting rtv for the RMS, no! I went with the anaombic sealant, worth it, and soaked the gasket itself with new oil as long as you can. No leaks total success!

Pick-up tube.. Yeah we don't talk about it, lol. All jokes aside it was the most physically exerting thing about the job. Especially, when your a quarter of the way in, and you realize "hey, I shoulda lubed this thing a bit." That's what she said lmao
