So I did a little snow wheeling at walker valley today and it was a blast! The only damage to was a badly kinked winch line and I tacoed my exhaust head pipe on a big rock......looks like the tj head pipe mod is coming sooner than expected!

Any now it shifts a lot better and on the bright side my softtopper should be here tommarow!

I used Valvoline Full Synthetic GL-3 75-90W in my AX-4. (yes, I have a rare AX-4, the 4-speed version of the AX-5 but got a W58 ready to bolt right in when the AX-4 takes a dump) Still got about 1/2 gallon of it left.. Hard to find, EXPENSIVE stuff but it works, and the transmission shifts somewhat smooth. (its an 85 and hasn't had a single rebuild in its life.. lol)


Anywho, damn nice build dude! Makes my rednecked XJ look like ****. Only decent things on my Jeep is the motor (see specs) and the locker in the HPD30. Everything else is just crap. bleh.

My exhaust won't be a problem any more but its time for a oil/engine skid! What do you guys think of the new setup?

I tried this same type setup with my Cj7 and 304 and eventually found it easier to back to dual exhaust. Can you still drop the pan if need be?

looks good bro. I'm in the Tacoma area. What I really like about yours is it's the only rig I've found that looks like mine will look like, though I'll have Stainless Brain Fab flat fenders, and it'll be 4" RE lift. Hopefully in the next 2-3 months, so Hopefully I can join you soon for some good wheeling! (I'm on 31's now with stock suspension, they've done great in the snow, but I don't want to try wheeling with no flex!!)
