Before it blew the head gasket pulling off at our exit! Doh!!

We're putting in a Jasper motor rather than rebuild it...200,000 miles on her as we speak. Expensive , but I hear they're worth it.

And yes, those are wimpy 31's. Will be upgrading to 33's when they wear out.

Looks like a nice ride. 33's are the smallest I would want on there.

I am not sure the 35's would fit without rubbing, so we'll be going with the 33's. It's got the 318, and as I posted about to get a brand new 318. 3 year/70,000 mile warranty.

Sorry to have posted it on this thread...couldn't think of where it should go to begin with. I've posted several times that we have this, never to show so I thought it was time to post a few pics to boot.

Anyone ever run a Jasper motor, and do you have opinions? I understand they come already broken in a little. Any thoughts on how to treat it when we first get it? Can you run syn oil or just go with the regular?

Thanks.
