My Buddy's JK had two minor oil leaks. One was the rubber intake gaskets and the other was the RMS. We replaced those intake rubber seals. We procrastinated for a couple months on the RMS because it is as hot as ball sweat here and working on your back on rough cement is unpleasant. I was willing, but not enthusiastic. I suggested he switch from the MOPAR 5/30 oil he always uses to the Castrol 10/30 which I had about 6 gallons of, just to see if it would make a difference. I'll be damned, no oil leak after the oil change, dried right up. If it had been my Jeep that wouldn't have worked.

Chris, my buddy always says, I wish I got a TJ! In truth, his rig has been good to him, but in the sand our TJ's rule. He's planning on bring his Jeep home to India, but he'd have to convert it to RHD. We can get a donor RHD JK from Japan, but that is a shite load of work.
