Just changed the TC fluid about a week ago should be good, I said in an earlier post that my rear diff changed angle becuase when I pulled the plug out the gear oil just poured out looks like the rear diff plug ended up tilting downward somehow between the last time it had been filled and when I did it...dont know if that factors in at all but it was different for sure.

Go ahead and pull the rear DS and see if the problem is still present. If the rear pinion angle changed check for broken, sagged leaf springs, loose U bolts, worn out or misaligned shackles or worn out bushings. Pulling the rear DS will confirm if your problem is related to the rear of the XJ.

Thanks...I will be pulling the drive shaft and checking that, as for the leafs they are flat as hell...almost inverted.

Let us know what happens after DS is removed, Myself I believe your problem is related somehow to something up front.

When I advised a drain pan, I didn't know you had the sealed output shaft on your transfer case. The older models seal on the slip yoke, so you may lose ATF when removing the slip yoke. With the design you have, it seals to the output shaft, so you don't lose fluid when pulling the driveshaft.

Ok I pulled the drive shaft and took it for a ride...no hitting the fan...so must be something with the rear end, the drive shaft is 27 7/8" which is what is needed for the 8.25...thinkin it has to be something with the way the leafs are and the angle of the diff...

Just how bad are your rear leaf springs? Are you certain nothing in the rear is not shot or broken. It would seem to me that if the rear is able to push the drivetrain forward you would be breaking your new trans mount as well as breaking exhaust manifolds.

The weak springs could have squatted to the point the DS is bottoming out. Sounds unusual, but it's probably possible.

I have never seen leafs cause this kind of issue...so I'm still not sure myself but I know it didnt do it after I removed the drive shaft, I'm still open to ANY ideas on what this could be...I have ordered new leaf springs shocks etc. to see if it will fix the problem, am I right in the fact that the correct drive shaft for the 8.25 measures 27 7/8 inches? is it possible or would it affect anything if the PO used a dana 35 yoke with a 8.25 shaft???? or is that even possible? I really appreciate all the input from everyone it helps to be able to bounce this stuff off of peeps with more experience with these Cherokee's.

I wasnt knocking your advise at all... I was more concerned when I didnt have trans fluid draining that I didnt do something right.

Everybody says that then half of them complain about vibes and take them back out.
