    2006 With 2015 engine
    I’m about to buy an engine to replace my 2006 4.0 with a blown head gasket. Anyone know what other years will work? To my understanding a 12-15 uses a different header and some other pieces. But will a 07-11 engine swap in fine?

    Ordered July 16, and arrived in the Yukon August 4. Considering the distance, and coming across the border, I am VERY happy! Already mounted a Plano case to it and went camping :thumbsup:

    Re-attaching the flare to the body was the easiest part. When taking off the flares there is a good chance you would break most (if not all) the tabs but they are cheap to buy (https://smile.amazon.com/ALLMOST-20...coding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=GV99P6Y98E09ZMV5CY9W) You wouldn't come close to cutting the retaining clips on the body since they are at the top of the flare. I can PM you a pic of the underneath a little later if you would like.

    I didn't reinstall my wheel liners because it was HOT as hell on Sunday but I did cut where the original tabs were on there for when/if I do decide to put them back on.

    Also @Shmellmopwho has a really good write up how to do this on his build thread too here. Pretty much the same exact process I did but he did a much better job at cutting the tabs/body than I did with the angle grinder :anonymous: (thank god its hidden :rofl:) Also this thread has some info/pics on the process as well.

    What plastic caps did you use to plug the fender holes? Interested in removing them when my BAMF front bumper comes in!

    Went to see why the door check is making noise (rubbing on the window run channel). Couldn't see the cause so I'm going to assume that I need a new door check.

    Do it! It’s an easy mod and looks great! I used eBay clips that have the foam washer

    Yeah, that thread has good details. I sanded mine, didn’t need body filler. Primer. Color matched paint. And clear coat. Easy afternoon chore

    Sweet bro, thanks- i'll check all that out.

    I did a good job removing those tabs but do need a few to go back on!
    What about the tabs at the bottom of the body, you can see a few in this pic. (Not the upper holes in the body) did those go away with what you trimmed off? Thats what i'm wondering most about now....

    so, i've been toying with the idea of losing the sway bar when i add my RCI steel skids + gas skid. With all the weight down low including sliders, does that increase the stability with the sway bar off?
