Nope, had an open carrier. Never had a posi.

Niners and tow package usually got a posi 44a. A 96+ V8 with no tow pack usually had an open 44a. Same story for D35s, just minus the niner part (and I6 only for 96-98).

I had an open 44a until I put in my lunchbox locker. You can only put a lunchbox into an open carrier 44a. There's 0 aftermarket support for the LSD 44a carrier.

Like they say, Barbie drives a Wrangler. (Don't show up, ZJ Barbie guy, let me have my fun)

People like what looks cool, not what is cool. Remember that.

You know you drive a ZJ when your damned t-case linkage won't stay in adjustment because there are 40 billion joints and the only adjustment point is a small screw clamp. Since buying this Jeep a year or so ago, I've had to adjust the linkage 4 times.

Those tow hooks aren't there for me. They're there for the XJs.

I think a few ZJ owners have Wrangler envy and don't want to admit it.
