Honestly, I think you spent more on your axles then you would to swap in a new engine. I saw on Steve's Jeep Country that he would install a Stroker for only $500, which is an absolute steal.
I am going to try the thicker oil first.

I am having a member on Wrangler Forum make a smaller Hi-Lift mount for my rear roll bar. It is going to be a 2.25", 2 piece clamp-on shaft collars from McMaster-Carr. He will drill and tap to accept a bolt. Add washers, lock washers and nuts. $75 shipped. The clamps alone are $14/piece plus shipping and the washers, nuts, ect. My current 4" muffler clamps work great, but sometime when I fold the soft top up/down, it will get stuck on one side.
This is how it will look:

Received the homemade Hi Lift mounts today. Install pics to follow. Had them made by a member on Wrangler Forum. They are a 2.25", 2 piece clamp-on shaft collars from McMaster-Carr. He drilled and taped to accept a bolt. Add washers, lock washers and nuts.
How they look?

Look good! How much did you pay for them? I'd be interested to see cause I'd like to get over bending my soft top frame to get it up around the exhaust clamps I've currently got going

Can you make the trail run on Dec 10?

They were $75 shipped. The guy on wrangler forum ordered them and pressed the screws into them. He sent me all the prices of it broken down. He only charged me $20 to do it, the rest was parts and shipping. I like them alot, I will put them under the padding so you cant see them.
No, I wont be able to make it next saturday.

I'll help you install your Aussie if you need to. I have experience removing a power trax from my D35 carrier, so installing one shouldn't be a problem.

The more help the better. I don't know what I am doing, and didn't feel that comfortable removing the carrier for the install.

It will either be right after XMas or the spring time.

Got some Bosh Micro Edge wiper blades and glass cleaner wipes. Also - I wanted to install the hi lift mounts today, but noticed that under my roll bar padding, there is thick plastic foam. I have to re-think the install now.

Cut the foam off from the point you want to install it and below. The only reason that padding is there is so that when you roll over/crash, your passengers heads are padded from the steel roll bar. It won't matter not having it in the back lower portion.

The Aussie is a seriously easy install.....took me two hours from start to finish on my first one. No reason to wait so long or even be afraid.
