Took me three tries to get it right but I am very happy with the result. Plus, I just packed up for my longest (distance) wheeling trip this morning, and I am not sure how I used to fit everything into a CJ-7 tub. It is nice to have the wheelbase and room.

I saw it last night when a bunch of LAOFF. guys came thru Alex and stopped to get a bite to eat. His is getting ridiculous and the recent addition of fenders, bumper/grill, lighting, and new winch.......

Plus you see even more if you come.... Just kidding. Are yall going to Sicily in early feb to the "beat your rig" run?

Well this weekend did not turn out how I planned.

The good: drove 70 all the way there with no shake or shimmy averaging 12.5 mpg. Drove back with out a trailer or tow. Picked up a new 231.

The bad: spent less than a few minutes on the trails before the t case came out of low.





Another LJ that I really liked.



The ride was a Louisiana 4x4 club ride, 10th annual ride at Barnwell Mountain just outside Gilmer, TX. Probably 30 TJs, 3 LJs, 3-5 CJs/buggies, 3 XJs and few non jeeps. Pretty good showing and I really like the park. Lot of hills and some pretty tough terrain from what I saw, but I didn't see to much.... I did find it nice to finish a level 4 trail in 2 wheel drive with multiple wheels picking up off the ground.

Anyways, I picked up a another 231 from a 01 auto 4 banger. It already had a cv style drive shaft on the front but it had a bolt stuck with a stripped head. When got home, I could press it out, so I had to cut it off.



I pulled mine and started to install my sye but my air tank ran out and I'll continue tomorrow. Getting real good at removing this 231....

No I just left to start working on mine. I think he found a good deal or something like that. They look tiny with his fenders.

Well I think I figured something out tonight.

The case that I have been running was a replacement front half and my original back half along with a sye tail housing. After I took most of the internals out of the main case, I put the back half back on and put in three screws with half a turn to make sure the case halves lined up correctly. But I could still move the case up a .5" to se inside when I found this.



The bottom image shows the nipple of the range fork not engaging fully in the slot for the gear selector. I then did the same procedure with the rear case half that case with the new to me front half circa post -----. This one engage perfectly. I figure this is the problem and this or replacing the shift fork is the solution. To bad i have to assemble to test and redo it all again if this is not the problem.

I recreated this for the picture then started putting everything back together, but it is hard to do quickly when you only have an 1-1.5 of light after work.... More to come soon.

Yep, speedy. I think I found the problem but I don't know if this is the fix. Got it assembled last night and I will throw it in the Jeep tomorrow. I have been talking to fido (2012 or 13 JKUR or 35s IIRC, who rolled on the Sicily trip end of last year) about some cenla wheeling this weekend for testing.
