Great looking Jeep. How exactly did you wire up your e-fan switch? If the switch is off, does your fan still come on automatically?

Some shots from the NAXJA Deer Valley Slickrock run. The locker made it like pavement.

Thanks. It was a great weekend. I messed up my steering stablizer, and hit the bumper so hard it hit the hatch twice.

You're building this thing up right man. Hard to tell in the pics but have you noticed much sag with that rear bumper/tire set up? I know the RE springs are stiff as hell..ive been thinking about a rear bumper but i dont want it sagging much back there.

Thanks man. It was great to meet Eric too, he had some encouraging words, being a former patriot blue xj owner.

I noticed no sag on the street, but when full of gas, tools and a highlift, it sags a little. I plan on adding a 1 inch shackle and 3/4 inch spacer up front to put it at a perfect stance. Im getting a bumper up front soon also.

It's understandable. The tire/rim must wiegh 100 pounds, the bumper 125, and the carrier about 50. But if anything, I noticed that it preloads the springs, so it soaks up bumps better, and doesn't have the light truckbed effect.

Can somebody please explain what this statement means??? I'm confused as hell reading this but I must be misreading this? The author here is installing a locking center section in a OEM open dif correct? how could you lose 4wd doing this? or is the question refering to a quadradrive type setup?

I did. He was really cool, and a GREAT spotter. He was really patient stacking some rocks to get me up slickrock.

Full time refers to the type of 4wd you are using. Part time is similar.

Full time- Can be used "full time" because it has a center differential, allowing 4wd to be used on pavement, with no ill effects, such as broken u joints. Also, depending on traction needs, more power can be sent to front or rear axles. Full time can be seen as all wheel drive.

Part time- The center diff is locked So the drive shafts are locked together. Equal power is sent to both axles. Using this on pavement will cause binding.

The reason you don't want a front locker in full time is because it will cause bind, and you will get major understeer and wheel hop. ( I have no experience with full time other than our wj.)

you are truly an inspiration! I have always liked XJ's, and this build definitely reaffirms that. All your mods are tastefully done, with quality work. Nice work! BTW, Square headlights FTW!
