Zj. Some had cv, some had u-joint. Don't quote me on it but I think the 242 case grands had u-joint. I got mine used for $85 shipped with the needed front yoke.

Im learning all this stuff as I go, so forgive my ignorance, lol. I think I have u joints. Inside my knuckle theres a component to the hub that looks like a u. I do have I6, but dont know how to verify what t case I have.

A cracked exhaust manifold will make a sound like that too I would check that out first.

CV have rubber boots, u joints don't. Tell us what gears your transfer case shifter says on it and we will tell you what case you have. Or you can get under your Jeep and look at the round metal badge that's on the rear of the case.

Truth haha.

That's actually one of things that bugs me the most is when someone calls it a V6.

Could get a V6 XJ though o.O nobody liked it.

Id like to see someone swap a v6 into an xj or zj just so they can say they have one. Then people will be like "you mean i6" and youre like "no, i mean v6" lol
