Picked up some front rotors along with front and rear pads on my lunch break. Should be a good way to kill an hour after work.

I think I heard the lsd in my 8.8 chatter today, guy at work said he heard it too, either that or my drivers side cv shaft. Also, it feels like a bearing went bad, cause it seems to vibrate a little, it somewhat goes away when I go through a gradual turn. I think its cause I used 80w-90 non synthetic, and not 75w-140 synthetic which is what I think its supposed to take.

My buddy helped me rebuild my rebuilt 231 today..

Always be sure your transfer case is full of fluid folks..or this might happen to you while driving 70 down the highway..

Melted/broke the high-low shift fork, luckily a friend had another 231 laying around that I used for parts. REALLY lucky it didn't cause a lot more damage!

Well, new front brakes are on and the pedal feels much better. Front pads were getting pretty thin, so it was time.

Moved on to the back and realized the pads had plenty of life left, which was a pleasant surprise. Still need to flush the brake fluid and service both diffs.

While I was poking around the back brakes, I was happy to find out that all the rear control arm bushings had been swapped out for urethane. Its nice to know that at least one of the previous owners took care of this Jeep.

Seems i have a slight squeek in one of my pulley.s...now to find out which one. Ps pump, water pump, and idler pulley are all less than a year old. Hopefully not the water pump, the pulley looks a tad wobbly and i did just replace the fan clutch.

I'm just curious, why does everyone pick the taurus efan over others? And is there a specific year of taurus I should be pulling it from? And how hard is it to wire up? I know basics of wiring but am definitely not an expert...

Sorry for all the questions just thinking about tackling this project soon and want to be sure I've got all the right parts and that I'm doing it right. Thanks guys!

It's a two speed fan that works well, fits in the ZJ, and can be found in abundance. It's not hard for somebody comfortable with clipping wires. There are several good write ups on it.

If you're looking for one that runs off of the coolant temp instead of a switch like the niner fan it's a little more involved but its still not too complicated.

I picked up a new, in the box niner fan for $40 about a month ago.
I'm still trying to locate all the OEM odds n ends crap to make it automatic....
But it will be worth it when it's finally done!!!

If you want, I'll grab the upper rad hose t-fitting off my parts niner when I get a chance. Use that and an aftermarket controller to make the fan automatic.
