Once you install the TJ axle shaft you really dont need it. I reused my cover and left the shift fork on just so that I would still have the 4wd light work on my dash, that is really all it does once its not used to move the sleeve to engage the 4wd. If that makes sense...
My wires to the CAD unit had been cut, but I have no issues with the 4wd. I've had to make a trip all the way back from the trails on the front axle only, so I know it works fine. I reconnected the wires to see if I could get the 4wd light to come back on, to no avail. Sometimes when I am in 4lo it will come on, stay on for a while, then go back off. Its a bit sketchy that it has been down there for 17 years but it still works.

Were do you take the XJ axle shaft to get balanced and what would the ballpark cost be. and which axle seal# is used for the converstion? How do they balance the shaft? Thanks
You don't get the axle shafts balanced. You may need to get the front drive shaft balanced and any driveline shop should be able to help you out with that. If you don't have or know of a driveline shop in your area, go to a local truck stop and ask them.

I am trying to do this now and for the life of me I cant get the seal to go in. I have bought two seals, one from Napa and one from Advanced and neither will go in. I am trying to get them on the passenger side, inside the carrier and it is not working. I have a 95 yj and I cant get this to work. The one from advanced is a National part # 710068. The Napa is SKF part # 11899
I have a late 80's XJ axle with disconnect going into my TJ. Anyone have confirmed part numbers for the seals? I keep getting conflicting information everywhere. Searched extensively and read the Stu Offroad article.
