The blue sky was a much welcomed surprise. Tomorrow is supposed to be even nicer.

Somewhere in the $1600 range...whatever the list price on their web site was. I love 'em.

Got home from work and put the rear of the Jeep on jack stands, started it up and found the squeak is from the rear...and here I was thinking it was from up front.

I need to wait for the wife to get home so I can get under it to find out where exactly the noise is coming from.

Edit: wife got home so I was able to get under and listen for the squeak....rear most u-joint. No wiggle in the joint....just a little squeak up to about 15-20 mph.

Guess I have some work ahead of me.

With any luck I'll get my hands on some new Spicer u-joints, soon, and get my rear drive shaft to shut up. Once that is done I'll have to start moving to the front of the Jeep...tranny pan leak, u-joints for the front shaft would be nice too.

Tummy tuck and new double cardan driveshaft time?

In case you didnt know Lubelocker makes a gasket for the 42rle. Much better then RTV.

I wish I had the funds to tuck it and buy new shafts...but if I did that I'd greatly reduce my chances at making it to Colorado in August.

The gasket sounds much nicer than RTV.

I'm in serious need of some new Spicer u-joints.....



I got off work and took the rear shaft off, threw it in 4hi and went for a drive....the squeak is gone. Too bad I can't get Spicer joints anywhere local. I have a buddy who may be able to pick some up, as he works in towards Chi-town.

Getting those stock u-joints out looks like fun. Apparently they need to have the caps melted out....that wouldn't be fun on the trail at all.
