Hi Fellow Jeepers,
I grenaded the AMC 20 in my 84 CJ7. No I wasn’t on some crazy trail or remote desert location “Thank God” It was in the parking lot of my local Starbucks. I Know, Don’t say it, at Starbucks.
As I understand it the Track Lok system is inherently prown to failure after years of abuse and in a 28 year old vehicle it was a matter of time.
My plan now is to install one piece axels, new bearings and seals, re-gear to a more appropriate ratio for my 35x12-50 tires, and install a new gear carrier.
I know it’s a AMC 20 and it might not be wise to put money into this weak link but I figure it’s worked perfect for 28 years.
So to my question:
I am not going to use an ARB to costly. So I am thinking a Auburn Limited Slip, Detroit/Eton Locker any ideas or advice. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
By the way I use my rig on the road in California so a Posi probably not the best option.
