We drove it home and only then discovered the cracked lower rear shock mounts after it was cleaned. That should tell you how much caked-on hard-as-cement dried mud covered the underside and engine of this Jeep ’01 TJ Wrangler. The shock mounts are welded up now, but we’re not sure this is a great place for lower rear shock mounts (food for thought). Tip: Bring along something to clean or knock off any crusted mud or gunky oil when you’re inspecting a potential used-Jeep purchase. Our TJ had no oil leaks, so we’re good there.
