    Heh, I'd love to but a lift would cost more than I paid for the truck. If I dump any serious money into it I'm going to pickup a new motor. That thing goes through oil like I go through alcohol.

    Hey guys, I'm looking at getting an 86 cherokee, but apparently it needs new head gaskets. I'm wondering, is it a common problem for them to blow gaskets, and what some causes are. Or is it just shitty stock gaskets?

    congratulations, you splashed through a mud puddle.

    they only abuse you are going to do is hydrolocking the motorator.

    cut the fenders, do longarms front and rear, coilovers, 4D" sticky creepy crawlers then wheel it ...

    that would be a 2.8 boat anchor.

    yank it, put in a chevy 4.3 or 350.
