Took Jeep out for some light off roading yesterday, since I finally got a used tranny installed, blew out reverse last year trying to get unstuck . Spent latter of last week installing doors and fenders cause drivers door was shot. Now I have plenty of spare door parts Need some serious trimming in front.

Yeah that is the shame of it... cleaning off the RTV wasn't bad as the previous owner didn't maintain it for crap so wasn't much on there, although after i finished i used about 1/2 of tube on it LOL.. Gotta do front diff now.


Got it stuck. It's still stuck. It's so stuck I could call insurance and say it was stolen and no one would ever know. It's so stuck I don't know anyone with a capable enough 4x4 to even to to where I got stuck to winch or yank me out.

Adjusted the transfer case linkage today trying to solve my 4lo issue. Not really sure if this solved the problem or not, guess I'll find out for sure the next time I'm in the trails. I think I'm going to drive the ZJ to work today...why not

If all your doing is changinv fluid just spend 5$ on a hand pump from any auto parts store. Hell ive used a soap dispenser head before. Hook some tube to it and start pumping

You should keep the rear white, doors red and paint the front clip blue. Haha

Drove the ZJ to jump my brothers dead XJ. Didn't start (Think the starter is going out) So we pushed it and popped the clutch in second.

I have a piece of house that fits over the bottle nipple then run it to the full hole and give good squeezes into the diff, works great.

You probably used too much. I bet it'll start leaking because of the amount you used. You're supposed to put a pretty thin bead around the edges. When I was done with mine, I didn't have any silicone coming from anywhere. I did mine back in February and it's still good. My gasket up front, on the other hand, is a little wet now.

I would have done this the first time through, but the seal was wet. That was something that needed to be addressed in my mind. I do plan on doing that the next time it needs a change if I don't have to drop the cover again because of a wet seal or if I don't throw an Aussie locker in there first. Only time will tell.

Every time i wheel i either turn the fluid to choco milk in a creek or peel the cover on a rock but if its just water then i pump it out through the fill hole and pour new in. Ill make a cover guard when i get my hp30 in.
just whatever you do dont waste your money on a purple cranium diff cover(looks like a spider)

Nah I've always used that much never had an issue, it was leaking from the po. I just picked this keep up its not my 96 which I have had a thick bead of RTV on it for almost 9 months (works perfectly). And I prefer to pull cap off because I prefer to inspect gears, bearings, and check everything inside (OCD)

Got it stuck. It's still stuck. It's so stuck I could call insurance and say it was stolen and no one would ever know. It's so stuck I don't know anyone with a capable enough 4x4 to even to to where I got stuck to winch or yank me out.

I'm digging that multi-tone look... kinda reminds me of my 4.0

Going to build this front bumper

http://www.flatland4x4.com/product1.html
My girlfriends uncle works at a machine shop,I'm sure he can have it cut out on the cnc. Will get like a 2in tube and have my uncle bend it and I'll mount some light tabs on it and put 4 daylighter knock offs from advanced on it. I'm going to get 3.5in lift springs up front, put stocks in the back,and get dt8000 shocks,I'll do that before I do the bumper. Get some 31x10.50 good year wrangler authority and some new rims. This will start in about 2weeks,going to gather parts to fix from the crash. Need a new fan and fan clutch,and radiator. Then I'm going to pull a part. Going to get a complete upper rad support then it should be good,going to order clear corners and turn signals. Will update as I get stuff done.

Saw this beast on the way to the junkyard to see if I could find a durango air hat, but didn't. Got one out of a dakota, though. Are they the same? Anybody think I can make it work?
