Thanks guys Mine does measure out to 10.2"s

Did anyone else notice these casting marks in their case?







I was looking for marks that may indicate chain slack (found none) But saw these raised casting marks. They normal?

And heres some more pics. The SYE wont be in until the 11th So that gives me a little time to make the 8.8 pretty lol

INSTALL A "TRUE NEUTRAL PLATE" WHILE YOU HAVE IT OPEN!!!!

Trust me on this, do it. Your t-case has a neutral that is NOT neutral. It does NOT disengage the front drive shaft from the back when in neutral. They are still connected, and are ONLY disconnected when you put the t-case in 2WD.
This is not an issue unless you flat tow and have a front locker or one peice pass side axle.
They fixed this issue in the TJ and newer t-cases.

Do it. Do it. Just do it.

One of my dad's friends cut out some 1" lift Boom shackles for her. I know what I'll be doing if the rain ever stops.

I dont think that would be beneficial to me, Ive never been in a position where I needed a true neutral and I never plan on flat towing but thanks for the heads up/suggestion

Well ever since the motor problems I have been seriously thinking about building a 4.6 stroker. Thoughts suggestions concerns? I have a complete 4.0 and complete 4.2 sitting in my garage they both need rebuilt. Infact all the 4.2 needs is rings and seals to be a runner, but I don't want to just go back to stock.

This will be a somewhat poor man's stroker with using as many used parts as I can.

Does anybody have experience in building a stroker? I could really use the help since I don't know much about what CR and quench height to go with, or how to acheive the perfect combo. It seems to be a lot of mixed reviews, and so many threads with completely different opinions. I still want to be able to run 87 octane or lower. My head hurts just from reading this morning.

My buddy really wants me to do a sbc, but I never really liked riding on the bandwagon anyways.

No problem.
But for those that do split their case, it's a $25 upgrade that is going to save your t-case if you ever flat tow it.

I just pull my DS's if I have to flat tow, u don't Have to have the neutral plate. Does make things nice tho, I don't flat tow either tho. I did once to get a ride home quicker. also if ur gona install the neutral plate might as well put 2 lo in there too...

Elaborate please. Not familiar.
But yeah the true neutral plate is MUCH easier than pulling the drive shafts.
No fuss, no muss. Just pull the lever.

Talk to jsawduste. He's a wealth of information on the subject. Take an Advil first because he will blow your mind.

Yeah I met him on pirate before I came here. He def. knows his motors, I may pm him after I do a little more research. I will most likely swap to fuel injection too so I will need to get my homework done. All the while babying my 4.2 that's in there now.

2 lo is just what it says it is. It 2wd low, it's a kit u order that comes with a diff mode fork and range selector. It adds another gear on ur TC shifter right under 4 lo, that way u can just bump it down into 2 lo on a tight trail which will disengage ur front driveshaft and allow u to steer easier. If u have selectable lockers then it doesn't really matter. If u have a lunchbox up front like myself, it's a great and cheap way to make turning those tight trails easier.
