I swapped in TJ/XJ shafts and had zero issues.

Like I said, I did swap in the TJ/XJ solid, right, front shaft with no problems.
What I was trying to say is that it killed my MPG as I use my rig as a DD.
Other than that, I have had no problems. I went from 16-18 Mpg to about
11-13 Mpg

There is no problem that can't be fixed if you throw enough money at it.

My next thought was to keep the stock shaft and just put the factory vac housing back in and just permantly e clip the fork over to the connected posistion as it is now.
I now get a vibe while driving can picture that wheel on the lock out fork spinning unnecessaraly
I will be reinstalling the posi lok today
Posi-lok is back in and working

I still run my stock system. It's only been problematic once when it wouldn't disengage but a some carb cleaner and WD-40 fixed that.

I also re-routed a 3 way toggle vacuum switch that I got off a Wagoneer at the junkyard. It worked great but after I got a locker and ripped the 4wd switch out of the axle I just hooked up the original system. Since the switched was ripped out on the trail I couldn't visibly tell if my axle was engaged or not and would not disengage it sometimes.

I ended up sending the switch a member on JF for free and now I'm planning on new XJ shafts once the stock system fails but that's just my .

Someone tried one with an electric actuator. Its just so much easier to lock the fork over and not have to mess with any go go gadget buttons.

Four wheel drive is determined by the selection on the transfer case. Not the front axle.
