Chris,

The jeep is coming along nicely. I'm jealous of all the sweet tools you have. Good call on the new yokes. I got one for my D30 mainly because I had a leak in the pinion seal. The machined part had some grooves causing the leak.

By the way Chris, your front output yoke on your t-case doesn't have any play in and out does it? Mine does and I don't think that's right. There is no lateral play just in and out. The nut is tight so I'm confused.

Thanks Lou. The new D30 yoke looks good on your rig.

I just went out and checked the front output on my Tcase. It DOES NOT have any in/out play. If the nut is tight like you say the next thing to do would be to pull the Tcase apart and take a look.

Luckily I have a spare t-case with an SYE in my buddies garage back in Georgia. It came out of a '95 YJ that was kept in a barn and only driven around town a little here and there.

Once I have the time I'm going to get it and put it in. It's a lot nicer than my tired NP 231.

Decided to spend a little time today working on the Jeep.


I pulled my D30 carrier to swap my spartan over to the other D30 im going to run.


Old carrier with spartan still installed next to my 3.73+ carrier.




fresh clean D30





got the spartan installed in the new carrier and bolted up the 4.56 ring gear. the gears still need to be setup but I figured I'd install it for transport




And finally I installed my lube locker gasket and SOLID diff cover. D30 ready to go get regeared





Tomorrow I will pull my 8.8 and throw it in the back of my truck to go get them both regeared on monday.


That's all for today folks
