I put in that $3 O ring on the pick up tube. It took a few hours, but really wasn't a bad job. While I was at it I thought it made sense to fix a couple gauges, most importantly, the oil pressure gauge. A while back I bought one of those stepper motor kits off Amazon. It was easier than I anticipated and within a half hour I had functioning gauges again. Now it's ready to hook up the trailer and drag the Jeep to Southington Off Road Park this weekend.
You dodged a bullet on the oil pump pickup.
She looks good and runs good. I don't mod my daily driver. Keep her clean and maintained. Save the mods for the toy.
