i did headgaskets on a 1998 sebring v6. Transverse engine with cab-forward design.



(stock image)

Talk about a BITCH!

headgaskets arent any fun anyway.. but sure beats having someone do the work for you ($$$$). AND MASSIVE CONGRATS for even knowing what you're doing... im giving you rep. No one knows how to do this stuff anymore.

Yup, Jeeps suck. There is really nothing good about them. A few years back my parents bought a Jeep Grand Cherokee (my father works for a Ford/Chrysler dealer, so they bought it for cheap) and you couldnt pay me to drive one of those things.
On snow/ice, it was aboslutely worthless and it was cheap and very poorly put together. You dont even want to know how much the resale value sucks on those things.
Honestly, I dont see whats so great about Jeeps. IMO, they are all marketing hype.

My husband and I owned a Jeep Grand Cherokee with the Quadradrive system and it was AWESOME in snow/ice. Other than a Subaru, it's been the best 4WD system we've owned.

Resale value does suck..... we bought ours used to it was to our advantage.
My mother-in-law owns it now.

I have a YJ also - Awesome trail rig!

that 4.0 is pretty sweet. i have 166600 on mine right now, and it has a mild exhaust leak. but otherwise its been fantastic.

and resale on a wrangler is wonderfully inflated, but yeah grands /cherrokees drop like a rock (well, they're chrysler)

but the JEEP 4x4 is one of only a few systems i've experienced that easily beats a toyota, the another one being a 4x4 superduty.

but out of curiosity, just how much easier would it be to do a head job on a toyota 4.0?

seems the block first patented in 1936 ( AMC 232=jeep 4.0) would be easier.
