Replaced the head gasket on my son's 2000xj. Intake manifold pita. Couldn't find any cracks in the head.

fixed the super-annoying creaking sound from the steering wheel area, tilt mechanism was jammed and needed some lube, soon be as quite as a limo

I might want to move the spare tyre to the roof temporarily for a few days, more room to sleep inside. With stock racks, is there any issues using 4 polyester tie-down straps to lash it direct to the roof between the racks?

Ordered a set of 30" BFG muds. Saved myself $400 by buying online.

I wouldn't mind a pair of these for the XJ for camping and night wheeling.

Guess it depends on how far into the housing it broke. If you can get vice grips on it, that's probably the easiest...

its too thin to use an easyout. If there is a stub sticking out, vice grips may be good. 50/50 acetone (nail polish remover) & atf is the best anti seize for this. A bit of heat from a butane torch helps. Be careful not to over heat the alloy though. If no luck, the 3 remaining bolts should be more than enough. Use plenty of silicone when you put it back together & anti seize paste like copperkote or the ally one would be better.
Good Luck !
