Thank You!

As you can see from the pics from this weekend, im starting her off early at 2 months old. The following is from the charity even my club helped put on this past weekend calle Crush for Kids. It was a charity event to help rais money for the boys and girls club of cleveland. We managed to raise 694 dollars i believe, which was amazing considering this was the first year.

Figured id put these here, Jeepskool Aug 2011





















Finally Jeepskools "mudslinger nick" about went end over end in front of me. Luckily he stopped instead of trying to continue to make it out on his own power. My uncle was able to snap a picture while i was getting my jeep out of the way and heading to grab his winch line. I was rather impressed with the line speed of that 8274 winch he has.

The variloks perform amazing offroad! I wasnt to sure about them at first, that was untill i broke my front cv shaft. After a quick tug out of the massive mud hole i fell into, i was able to drive completely out of the overly rutted and muddy trail in 2wd. Although it was challenging and i had to constantly get some running starts, i still made it out under my own power.

Since then ive tried to pay attention, and watch the ls "lock up," and its helped me every time i need it. By no means is it a locker, but i would take them any day over an open diff.

As for the front driveshaft, im running a stock front double cardon shaft out of a 96 v8 zj.

yeah i want a locker but the wife drives this thing in the winters here in Maine, i def do not need to be pulling my jeep out of ditches everyday. (she couldnt handle a locker on snowy roads)

As for the driveshaft i was just curious as you sold me your carolina in the classifieds here.
i have had 5,000 miles on it so far and have even seen speeds of 85mph (on the speedo, so maybe a lil faster)
The only thing i did have an issue with was a vibration at first install, would come on at 40mph little vibration. so i unbolted the front yoke spun the driveshaft 180degrees and reattached. now im all good!
And have yet to feel any vibration since. I'am at 5 3/4" lift in the front and 5" in the rear.
wheeling i haven't had any serious trips but the usual trails with one other WJ buddy.
Im wondering if that was your problem as well?
I was just curious why you would have gotten rid of your carolina for a stock ZJ one?

That was one of the other deciding factors of going with variloks, i wanted better traction, but didnt want to have a locker because i hear they dont perform well in the snow. I will get a locker one day, but thats after the variloks wear out.

Got rid of it cause money got tight for a little while with the baby, and i knew i could get some $ out of it and use my spare zj shaft so i didnt have to go without 4wd.

You have to remember about a locker...even though your Jeep might be going into the ditch more often it's not going to get stuck in there.

Good deal. You did get the bearing, washer, castle nut and cap for the swing arm right?

I know I gave your buddy those small parts along with the lug nut socket and he put it in a small tool box.

Tj- I waslooking at the pull-a-part website and saw that I could get an entire axle assembly for 125$.
If I found a v8 wj with a 44 and the quadradrive- could I just swap it on? I've done brakes, axle shafts, control arms so I feel like installing it back on to my jeep wouldn't be that hard.
