ground down every other tooth on my 8.8 abs tone ring. Not an easy job with an angle grinder and shaky hands/arms.

The remaining teeth are mostly intact. I think it'll work ...

If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.

I am not an expert on axles, so could you please explain why you have to do that?

dont quote me on this but i think i saw something about the tone ring has to have a certain number of teeth because the computer monitors the tire speed or something like that based on how many teeth it has for the abs. not 100% sure why i missed part of that episode of Extreme 4x4

You drive a tj, we drive a zj. We have more power while you get more shower. We get the v8 while you get there too late. You have 2 doors well, we have 2 more. Ours costs a grand while yours has a price we cant stand.

Correct. The Jeep is only looking for 54 teeth and the 8.8 has 108. Numbers might be wrong, but you get the idea.

Also my hi-lift came today. Still need to build the custom rear bumper with hi-lift attachment.

Just got back from Pic-N-Pull. Scored a 5.9 soundbar (complete this time), another set of 5.9 hood louvers w/ drip pans, a 5.9 shifter handle, and 4 more 703 injectors. It was a good day.

Take lots of notes on measurements, and take lots of pics. I believe I'm not the only one here waiting for a detailed write up on this.
Love this idea.

Finally got around to swapping in the np242 i've had in the garage for a month.. No more 249!
So what have you 242 guys done about the transfer case gear sensor deal (the sensor that isn't the speedo)? Mine doesn't reach, is it just a simple cut and extend?
