Packing a new load out for the trip this morning to Mt. Rainier. All my GF wanted to do for her BDay today is take our malamute puppy to snow to play in it.

grrrr
Infinity uses a lot of 2 ohm speakers. Some head units don't support that low of an impedance. You may have damaged the internal amp on the HU. Upgrade time!

Dropped mine off to get some of the welding done for my long arms! Anyone have a rough estimate what just the welding would cost for just the rear clayton long arms?
And is it ok to run different backspacing front and back?

Shouldn't hurt, I know that running wider in the rear will kill your turning radius though

Got stopped on the way home from base today, and was offered $6500 for it. Apparently the young soldier had just purchased a ZJ, but didn't want to go through the process of building it. I pointed out the flaws mine has, mainly a crank 185k mile 5.2L, and he was still unfazed. I had to laugh the offer off, and told him I had more than that in it currently, and it's not even close to done.

Used black rtv and autozone had a felpro gasket for the rear d35 and d30 front 4$ each so I got both. napa and advance auto said they could only get it for the d30 and d44. When I took it apart all that was on both was a **** load of rtv and some red locktite

You can find gaskets for all the diffs in zj's, but some are extremely hard to to find (or find in stock) at most places. Most just use rtv sealant (self included) and have had no problems.
