It's made using OE specs, so you get the same level of reliability and performance you enjoyed originally. A 5 year limited warranty from the manufacturer helps guard against problems, so you can relax and get back to hitting more trails. Construction.
Made out of high quality steel for the 4.2L engine, this gasket is durable. It can withstand extreme operating temperatures, plus wide swings in weather without warping. That translates into a problem-free experience for years, so you do not have to think about it after the installation job. Installation.
It's recommended that you have at least moderate mechanical skills to take on this job. Basic tools, including screwdrivers, a torque wrench, sockets and needle nose pliers are necessary, along with a gasket removal tool and penetrating lubricant. You will need to remove the stock hardware, soaking it with the lubricant as needed. Once you reach the stock gasket, remove it and use the removal tool to safely scrape off any leftover debris. Reverse the process to install the new gasket, following Jeep's torque and bolt replacement specifications. All in all, this replacement job should take a couple of hours, depending on your experience. Application.
