    Hey guys, my name is Tommy. I just bought my first XJ last week and was turned on to this site by Mark at Payless 4 Wheel Drive, which is also where I work. I pulled the engine 2 days after i bought it to replace the cam and lifters because of a ticking noise. My bussy also has an XJ and I look froward to great wheelin' trips with the help of this site! Thanks for all the help in advance!

    So you finally stepped up and logged in, welcome to the wonderful world of the XJ.So you should tell everybody more about the jeep and what you actually paid for it. ( he stole it ) I do him lots of credit he's 19 and is completely going through the motor on his own (his "bussy" is helping). ok its newby bashing time !! Just kidding. Get er tommy so we can go break it !!!!
    Aint got no whistle, don't belch out smoke, but my V10 aint no joke !!!

    haha thanks Mark. Well I "stole" it for 700 with the mindset that I was gunna be rebuilding the bottom end. I pulled the valve cover off and noticed the rocker arm on the exhaust valve on cylinder 2 was loose so I suspected a collapsed lifter. Pulled the head and that lifter. The bottom of it was all tore up so I opted to pull the whole engine to replace the cam and some other things. I can't wait to get paid so I can finally buy the parts and put it back together! And yes, my "bussy" (buddy) is helping me on it. He has a '95 XJ and i'm in the process of getting him on the site too!

    I've heard only good things about XJ's so i'm very excited to get the engine back in. I pulled the cam today. VERY glad I did because that lobe is almost completely rounded. My next purchase after I fix it will be a trail guide so I can try to see if I can get myself lost way back in the woods. I bet Mark wouldn't mind if I got lost
