Good idea to have one. I never really thought of putting one in.. Esp wheelin when your really gettin on it and its not getting airflow to cool it, Itd be nice to keep an eye on it. I may be doing this soon

GD dude. From the looks of your jeep the roads up there get hosed with ice melt. I hate that stuff. I cant literally hear it eating away at my jeep.

Cut the rusted rockers and bottom front fender out and had a friend weld in some new metal.












Upgraded stock speakers to some Pioneers.

After taking it out on a couple of drives, it's quieted down some. It definitely lets you know it's there though. I don't know if I'd recommend this in a daily driver or not yet. I haven't had enough time behind the wheel with it installed. I do get a little binding going around corners when accelerating, even under very light acceleration. If I have the opportunity to coast around a corner, I don't bind at all. The problem is, most corners around me are left or right turns from stoplights/stop signs. Left turns aren't that bad because you can swing out quite a bit to make them. The tight right turns are where I tend to get the binding. We're supposed to get some snow on Sunday so maybe I'll take the ZJ out just to see how the Aussie does with snow. I have a feeling it's going to be rather difficult to drive. Anyway, here's a small video I made to give you a feeling of how it sounds. It's not the best video and my narration sucks, however, here it is. You can hear the wheels binding on the second turn I make. I was accelerating from a stop sign and turning right.

That's exactly why I don't want an Aussie. As soon as you apply any throttle, the diff locks, so other than being able to unlock it by coasting, it's almost as bad as a welded diff in terms of street manners. It shouldn't be terrible in the snow, it'll just take some getting used to. At first, you'll probably get sideways a lot.

You're referring to an ARB, right? If so, why the issue if it's selectable?
