Haven't got to do anything other than drive her the last week or so. Possibility of maybe doing some work this weekend; however, the "man" has informed is that we will be on duty for this Memorial Day weekend. I love serving out country, but sometimes...it's just unpleasant as f**k.

I saw one in the JY a few months ago. Could have gotten the bellhousing trans drive shafts and anything else I wanted. I am kicking myself now for not grabbing it.

If you look around, you can find different diameter tips for venturi tubing like you describe. I used to sell industrial chemical, and nearly every liquid detergent can be mixed by using a water source and a venturi tip - the strength of the mix determined by the size of the tip. Look at ZEP chemicals for mixing stations and misc parts.

Get a twin stick tcase like a D300 or Atlas get cutting brakes , and try to do a front dig. It won't work as good as a locker. But spools are not bad IMO. I'd probably run one on a Trail rig that isn't street drive.

When those expensive pit bull tires start wearing down in the rear, you'll understand.

Not on my YJ, but on my buddy's JKU we found out that the fill plug on his new Riddler diff cover doesn't actually snug down. It just keeps going.....until it falls into the diff! He was double checking all the bolts/torque on his transfer case and diff cover and ended up threading the fill plug through the diff cover until it just fell in. Had to remove the cover, fish it out, bolt it back on, and refill it.

That's kind of annoying! :

Cheers

My buddy ordered a riddler for his 8.8 and it didn't even come with a plug. He got a solid instead.

Weld a small bead in the inside of the thread pattern, that will allow u to tighten it down pretty good. I had to do that as well

Hahaha I bust tires for a living so I don't have a problem buying tires at cost , I can't tell much of a difference between the spool and my old spartan locker beside pulling into parking spots or or doing u turns. Other wise I really can't feel the difference!
