Pulled the front driveshaft...yes, I just installed it two weeks ago. The drive-ability went up IMMENSELY. So much better feeling. That 249 has got to GO.

Wheeled it hard this weekend and only kinda broke it. Driver side front door, back drivers side door and rear fender flare are all smashed. Front pinion bearing is toast and rear main seal in the new transmission is leaking like hell.


Other than some damage it was a awesome weekend with my 4x4 club.

went to the local JY to see if they have a Shifter assembly for my NV3500 still no luck =(. But for the hell of it I did take It off my Ram Just to test drive it. Definitely worth the effort, I missed my ZJ nearly 6 months of not driving it. 5.2L V8 + 5 Speed what a combination makes you wonder why the hell didn't they do this stock. **** the Auto POS trans.
