Default Putting it away this weekend

well just found out that my front supercharger bearing is going bad, my rear engine mount is bad, I need a new A/C Compressor. And I know that the LIM and UIM has never been worked on. Its time to put it away for a while. I have my GXP and we are looking for a Jeep for my wife this weekend so I am going to let it sit for a while until I can get to it and restore it.

The SC, gaskets, and mount are all fairly easy and inexpensive. AC compressor sucks though. Kinda gotta have that in AZ, eh?

I'll be doing the SLEeper soon too. Similar work. She'* getting the top end I ran on the Zilla last year. Still on original gaskets right now, and needs a new coupler/nosedrive anyway.

LIM and SC are ready to go on whenever I get caught up on the other projects long enough to get it done.

On the plus side, it will hive you plenty of time to look into doing things like PEMs, PLIM, PTB, etc.

Within the month probably. I just need gaskets. Not all of them, but more than what I have here.
