New Chapter in my 2004 Jeep LJ’s Life

Within about two months it will ten years since I purchased this LJ. I will continue to have it for until the point someone else destroys it. Flopped, first dead 42RLE, replacement engine, two transfer cases, and the current 42RLE starting to die. A bit of a visual recap…

Now with it just rolling over 200,000 miles it is time to start a new chapter in my LJ’s life. The 42RLE transmission has always been crap and despite the AMC era motor being immensely reliable it just does not have enough horsepower for my needs.
