Don't forget the kitchen sink. Jeebus, your're packing a lot...

As far as extra fluids, ask yourself why. Why do I need extra gear oil? Because I peeled up the diff cover. Are you going to get it sealed again? Probably not.... no extra fluid needed.


Uhh hello! That’s what the duct tape’s for!  ;D

You need extra gear oil for when you lunch the spider gears in the read diff of your YJ on Fisher West, and two guys crawl under your rig, remove the fragments from your rear diff, slap a cover back on, and send you home in 2WD.

If you already have the Minivan Special (3.8) a blower might be the least painful way to add some oomph. It's no LS swap, and certainly not as cool as a Cummins.....but it'll let you merge onto Deerfoot without as much of a pucker factor.

If you google the 505 performance 3.8 stroker kit you'll find mostly poor reviews. As Jamal stated the issues may have been resolved but that's a big price to pay to find out.
Swapping in a 4.0L into a Jk would be cool:) but not easy I suspect. If you're planning on the JL diesel in the future it may be best to wait. Tough to spend a bunch of money on an engine upgrade and get very little return on it when it's time to sell. :/

Good call on the gear oil thanks!

I do have a first aid kit but should get a fire extinguisher.

Thanks for the feedback

And you’re going to want to add a couple liters of gear oil to your fluids inventory.
