Rear main seal, Valve cover, oil filter adaptor O rings, and balancer seal all very common leaks on the 4.0

Well I'm in the middle of pulling the engine. It still runds but don't want to take any chances so I'm getting a another one from the wreckers. I'll sell the block if anyone needs one. I still need to change most of the front suspension as well. Think i might just lift it while I'm at it.

Unless someone wants to give me a good offer for the cherokee with a worn out motor!
