#25 The next DD...?

I sold #24 today and picked #25. Its an 04 2 door extended cab with the 4.0 Automatic. My buddy Brian (auto ,on the forum)had this truck for a while but has other priorities so he sold it to me. It has an overheating issue and alot of dents. I want it to finally get a 4.0 for towing and a newer truck. #14 has been a good truck and I will be selling it once I get this one ready. Took a couple pics but they are not great, I'll get better pics soon. Anyway here they are...

well #24 was a pita to sell. I had it on ebay 3 times but in the end a guy from craigslist bought it. Thanks Art, the pics don't really show the dents.

Yeah it was 50 here yesterday and I gave it a quick wash. The wheels suck because I removed the clear coat and they are hard to keep clean.

Looks like you're really movin along there. I kinda thought the 4.0 SOHC sucked as far as working on them that's why I changed the spark plugs before I lowered the cab and front clip down but the 207 HP is worth it.
So, What's wrong with the engine? I thought you were going to get to experience the power of the 4.0L when you got it home.
