Removing front axle disconnect

Anyone have experience "deleting" the front vacuum disconnect? I know I'll have to put in a full shaft on that side and manual hubs?

Just trying to see if it's worth the time and money to do it.

Just modify your vacuum system to permanently lock the shafts.

i pulled my two piece shaft. Installed a new seal at the pumpkin end, and installed once piece cherokee or TJ shafts. You can block off the disco area with a plate or you can leave the cad acuator pump in place, just plug the vacuum ports. Problem solved. the hubs remain the same. Unless, of course, if you want to install selectable hubs. They are expensive though.

My whole conversion.

No need for manual hubs.

You can delete the CAD in two ways: Permanently lock the fork over by sliding it on the shaft and re-installing the E-Clips. Or remove the CAD, remove the two piece axle setup, and install a TJ shaft in its place with new seals.

Personally, I just locked the CAD in place 5 years ago and have had no issues.

Locking the cad fork over is the only temporary solution to a permanent problem that I can live with on the jeep.
