I would say if this doesn't fix it, buy the tools and do it yourself!

If doing it myself was a real option, I would have, but if I bought the tools to do it, all I'd have is new tools that I couldn't use.

It really sucks to pay someone, that you would think knows how to do the work, only to find out you wasted hard earned money.

I put over 200 miles on the Jeep this weekend, all is good.

I'm $1300 poorer than I was, but the Jeep is back. My dog is really happy too, as she hasn't been for a ride in a year.

Looks like it's been quite awhile since I've posted here. Well I've still got the Jeep and it's still running just fine. I haven't been wheeling since Moab 2015. I bought a brand new Harley last year, to replace the 2009 I had gotten in 2015. I tend to spend most of my free time on the Harley, weather permitting of course. The Harley goes a lot further on 6 gallons of gas than the Jeep does, and there are more places to ride it than there are to wheel the Jeep around here, so the Jeep has taken a back seat. I'd love to get back out to Moab or Ouray in the Jeep, but that probably won't happen for a couple more years. Here's the bike that the Jeep hates.
