Hello everyone,

I just stumbled across your Jeep JK forum and I thought I would post a introduction about myself. I just purchased a 2008 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon (4 Door) and I have loved it so far. Unfortunately I have already had in the the shop to put a new engine in. I hydro locked the motor and broke the connecting rod to the No 1 piston about a month ago. So I just got it back and I have already ordered a Rubicon Express 3-1/2" lift with 35" Mickey Thompson Tires. I am hoping to have it all installed in 2 weeks, it can't get here fast enough... Oh and I will probably be looking at adding a snorkel kit after my last encounter with water, lol. If you would like to see the post on the Middle Penninsula Jeep Association website that I am a member of here in Virginia. Click the address below to see the details. Thanks and I hope to keep in touch with ya'll. Have fun Jeepin. :)

Welcome to the forum.

Sorry to hear about your hydrolock. Did it get covered under warranty?

No it was not covered under the warranty. But my insurance agent filed the claim as a flood loss and they are covering everything from the engine, the labor, and the rental car. So I am very happy with my agent right now. :bounce:
