15- 5 new tires
16- tranny cooler
17- rebuilded power stearing pump
18- very very small only one drop leak on the rear of the motor, (I think I should not worry about it)
19- new cat, but rusted out exhaust
20- new monroe sensatrack shocks
21- A/C works great
22- has the same prob as many other xjs that the alt does not give enough power to power the lights and A/C without lowering the Alt gauge
23- has a water leak (maybe) coming from the top of the front windsheild that when it rains water gets in...
24- might need a new fan clutch
25- has a 160 Tstat (recomended by the guy at Mopar store)
26- the guys sprays down all the things that might get corroted with some marine jelly or grease to prevent that,
27- only 86k miles on the clock
28- the guy took all the carpet out to check for rust and it has non (I will verify this later, myself)
29- he change the diff oil to synthetic valvoline, he does not know if it is posi or not so he did not add any additives to the oil, I will check at 3pm
30- it has a chrysler rear diff, open
31- he uses 15 w40 engine oil

I think thats about it.. still need to check what rear diff it has and if it has posi or not.. aslo it is a 4.0L HO automatic

Looks good, BTW the oil drip from the rear of the engine sounds like the rear main seal leak. Very common.
thats what I thought, should I worry about it now that its only one drop?

Most people dont until it starts getting pretty bad because its a PITA to replace. Just check your oil every week or so just to make sure there is a sufficient amount of oil in there.

Yeah, change the diff oil to 75w-90.
EDIT: Or do you mean in the engine? In that case it's fine.

My $.02, half the things you posted is garbage. Just lift your jeep 5-6.5", change the rear axle to something beefier and throw 35's on it. Dont mess around with skids, you will never need them. Maybe a gas tank skid but definitly not an engine skid or tcase skid. I doubt you are going to do any hardcore wheeling anyways.

O ok. I would seriously consider just waiting and saving up for a 5" lift because if you do a 3", in a couple months you are going to want to go higher. It happens with every jeeper.

The engine skid is handy when getting hung up and have to be pulled out. My oil pan has a dent in it from being pulled out of several holes.
