Yeap :-) Haha the quarter panel armor is the same thickness as my front bumper

lemme know if you need pics of my mounting plates inside the quarter panel. It can get tricky cause of the bends on the inside of the panel.

Hey guys, So i have a leaking right(passenger) wheel seal.
I hunted around for about an hour today and finally after going to the better of the three parts stores in town i got the number:

For the Moog p/n: 710068. This is good for the disconnect housing with 1 piece shafts.
The price was 16.99

Than the axle seal for the rear 8.8 axle seal is: 8835s These numbers will be good at most decent parts stores.

Figured it may save someone some time by having the number at their finger tips.

Jeep looks good, definately one of my favorite builds on here. Looking forward to the quarter armor, its something I've considered as I have a very similar dent above my fuel door.

Well it's been a few weeks but i got another little tinkering project that i tackled.

Electric fan upgrade:
I grabbed a single speed taurus fan from the JY for 5Bones. I thought it was a 2 speed, but that's what i got. After reading around i decided to try it with the single speed fan, since most guys rarely if EVER get up to use the 2nd speed on the fan.
what i found is that the single fan is 5.5'' deep and a 15'' blade. The one i grabbed has a good fairing on it so i cut the ears off to make it 21'' on the outside.




For a wiring harness I went to the local VATOzone and they had to versions of a wiring harness for an electric fan. One fixed temp and an adjustable. for around 35$ i got the adjustable. the wiring is setup for a 2 fan setup. I only needed the one setup so that is all self explanatory. The wiring of this thing is stupid simple. Spelled out in the instructions included.
This looks really close, But it's not. Has about 1.5'' of clearance.



After a quick test this thing works really well. It took awhile to tune the controller to turn right on at 200. After a couple of hours of tinkering with it i got it right on. Driving in traffic and out on the highway it's perfect. It's pretty cool to hear it turn on and off while at idle to maintain that 200 degree operating temp. I was not expecting the power gain i got when i did this swap, but the seat of your pants feel is awesome, maybe i'll gain a few MPG's I will post up how it works long term.

Is there a particular year/years to look for when getting a fan out of a taurus? Are there any other electric fans that will work in a zj? I'm considering doing the same thing for mine, but I would love to know if there are any particulars about it or if there any other fans that will work.

I think it is 88-95 taurus fan.

I used a single speed fan from a taurus with at 3.0.

Also available is a 2 speed fan which would be from the same years except with the 3.8v6.
Most guys prefer the 2 speed fan vs. the single speed just because of the extra insurance. I did not think it was nec. and it's a pain to wire. the single speed fan is simple and easy to get a wiring kit.

I'm sure there are other options out there but these things fit like a glove really. I am super impressed with the single speed one. I was bombing up a long stupid steep grade today to the mtn top and didn't even flinch past 195. I was impressed. It's like a mile long grade too.

hope that helps

Thanks for the info. Right now mine is my dd/project. So if I can get an e-fan and free up a few mpg's, that would be awesome. I just put a cherry bomb about a week and a half ago and actually lost about 2mpg's from what I had been getting. Maybe a fan swap will give em back.

Thanks, I haven't had a bunch of time lately to sink into it. But looking forward to the next three weeks, Wheeling trip planned each weekend.

Changed diff fluid last night to inspect after gear intall. Wear pattern looked right on and there was almost no metal shavings on magnet.

Still need to replace the front axle seals and change oil, (do basic maint)

Yeah i dig the ARB, It is nice to have alot of control on these twisty trails. I actually really dig the Detroit rear. Solid traction over all kinds of surfaces, no remembering switches or anything.

Now to get the Long arm's built. What bumpstops do you use with your 35's and the 7'' kit?
