Hi - A little O/T

Hi All, glad to finally find a forum for YJ's ONLY!!! Tired of reading, "My TJ this and My TJ that", at JU... Looking forward to picking up some new ideas. Next to Jeepaholics, this is the best BBS I've found!

Cheers,
Garth

Boy, I know what you mean about the TJ thing. What I find amazing is that the JU vote is headed towards keeping all models together. Of course it's mostly TJs saying keep it together. And they just love an audience. Fuggem. I don't mind sharing a general discussion area with them, but frankly, I don't give a rats *** about round spring tech talk.

It's not even the round spring tech that bothers me, it's the inane questions and topics... "How do I get my TJ the shiniest, what wax works best?", or "Look how cool my TJ looks in the driveway!". Not saying that some TJ owners don't wheel them, but if you judge solely by JU, they are few and far between...

Osburn, like the pic of your traction bar in the other post, any chance of one where it's showing the connection? Or do you have a write-up on it? TIA

LoL, I know what ya mean Newfie.
I visited JU for about 30 mins before I got sick.

I don't have a problem with TJs for the most part...except for the few idiots that start trashing leaf springs and square headlights

Sorry, no write-up. But here's two pics that might give you what you're looking for. Sorry about the mutt, but she has to be in the middle of everything.

Sahara, the Dana 60s were built by Dynatrac.

Tonka, the traction bar does not bind. But only eliminates about 85-90% of the wrap. Mike Duncan (aka http://www.fourxdoctor.com ) built these. He has years and years of experience. It's his contention that you should not remove 100% of axle wrap. The wrap is a cushion to your drivetrain. As far as cost, it's hard to say. I've had a lot of work done there and it's hard to say what cost what anymore.
