Got the mechanical fan clutch replaced yesterday! Hopefully that will help keep the temps down!

Got a question for you all, kinda specific to me.

I was thinking about a locker for my Rear Axle... I know its a Dana 35 weaker etc etc. But running stock tires help that situation. However I was wondering what would be best for me. A Vari-loc type dif or a locker such as an Aussie. What do you all think?

Your mom won't let you lift it, or is it your dad? Due to spending money? But you keep wanting to spend more money on non-lift items that really have no point on a stock vehicle? I'm not trying to be harsh. I'm just being practical. Save your money if that's what your parents want. Locking a stock 35 with stock tires on a stock suspension WJ seems a bit of a waste. What kind of wheeling are you doing?

If the time ever comes where you can lift it, that locker won't be very much use when you go to bigger tires. Practical speachifying end now.

Their minds change more and more. Dad doesn't want the ride to change after the mess with the rubicon and mom follows suit cause she has no idea on jeep lifts etc. That is there rational and I just have to deal with it.

I do wheel often, the grand is suprisingly capable at stock height but where I always find it lacking is when I get hung up in mud or sand or some rocks is because I have an open diff in the front/rear. I'm in part time and only getting two wheels to spin, how lame is that you know? At the beach last month I almost got stuck when I stopped and was trying to go and I only had 2 wheels spinning, one front and one rear.

I understand your points and they are very valid. Haha

Went junkyard diving in richmond looking for a motor for my driver's seat with no luck. Came across a rear power outlet for the cargo area and snagged that one, turns out I dont have the wiring harness for it in the cargo area behind the paneling... sad face. What should I do?

Run wires from the front ones back there. They won't be on all the time just when the Jeep is on then.

you can drill a hole in the back of the center console and add the outlet in the back seats.

can install it in the rear and tap into something with power back there
