    What I thought was bad gas, is far from it. The shop got the motor pulled apart and it's surprising the thing ran as well as it did.
    It'll need a new motor and I'm not willing to make that leap.

    I think I know where someone can get a nice burb that just needs a drop in.

    Why not find a low mileage replacement engine, a lot cheaper than a new car payment.

    While it's obvious that a new engine will be cheaper than a new car, sometimes it's time to just make a change. Good luck no matter what you do!

    Here's what it's boiling down to for me. If I throw another 5k(+) at it. I'll have a truck that I'll likely only be able to sell for little more than the cost of that motor.

    The replacement will be a cash purchase so I wont have a payment. Looking at a newer Jeep Unlimited. I like Jeeps too.
    As a side note, I really enjoyed the impotent expression on the Jeep drivers faces when they locked on this Suburban rolling their way.

    All that said. I am conflicted and appreciate the comments.
