About

This used to be my mothers truck and was bought new here in Jacksonville, Florida in 1998. When she bought this truck I had a feeling I would end up with it one day so I made sure that she added a few extra's to it since she had to special order it because what she wanted was not on the lot at the time. I tried to get her to get the 4.0L V6 vrs the 3.0L V6 but she was more into MPG rather than HP. We ordered the trucks up as a black CC singel cab step side with the 3.0L V6 and a 5spd and added a 3.73 trac lok rear-end with 4 wheel abs and the 15" wheels.

The truck has about 120k on it when it started getting a random miss in cyl 4 when she brought it to me to find out what was up. I found that there was no compression in cyl 4. She decided it was time for a new car so she bought one and gave this truck to me.

After a pulled the engine to see what was up I found that the #4 cyl had a bad valve seat and tore up the guide. SO the project starts.

The really cool part about this project is that the truck it self is in MINT shape. It has been garaged since new and the interior is in 100% like new shape the the black CC paint in near flawless.
