Jeep Fixes

My 15 year old just got his permit - so what better way to celebrate than a father-son afternoon of wrenching. It’s been a while since I’ve worked in a car, but we replaced the water pump, thermostat, belt, hoses and radiator of our XJ. It had a slow coolant leak that I couldn’t hunt down - here’s to praying it works. Took about 5 hours with about $350 in parts. Felt good to get back at it, and hopefully taught my son a thing or two.
