One side note about the U joints. They are greasable by needle grease fittings in the caps so they are solid and not cross drilled like typical greasable joints.

Wow got the Jeep fixed all up with 4.88's today Thanks for the great job Mike! What a huge difference in how this thing goes down the road! actually maintained 70 mph all the way home in 5th! One thing though, gonna really have to keep up with the maint. on the double cardon joint in the rear shaft. those few extra r's really accentuate the vibration it can make. I can always tell when it is needing another shot of grease! Not any pics of this mod all internal and done while I was away.

Just wanted to give an update on the gears. I pulled the rear ds last night and greased it up real good, Once that was done drove smooth as silk (for a jeep) Got give Mike some more Kudos, You can just feel when things are done "right" got a chance to lock it in and play in the snow last night and everything ran smooth and quiet. Some of the rightups I read about the usa standard gears said they were durable but were noticably louder than other aftermarket gears. If they are I can't hear them over the growl of the squirrels. I would definately recommend these for someone looking to do this upgrade and is somewhat budget minded. (these gear and master install kits were 375 shipped, Most brands cost that much just for the gears) Also there was a small bit of concern in the back of my mind about binding with the aussie locker in the front once I eliminated vacuum disco and installed the solid XJ axle. I do not notice any difference in how it drives or feels. The only thing different there is no 4wd light when I lock it in. But I know its already engaged so I dont have to have an idiot light to let me know!

Great post, nice to see some YJ love. I really like the bit about taking a router to the tires. Very inventive and unique!

I'm two weeks into owning my YJ and frankly, alot of the discussion here is way over my head but that's what makes these threads go much fun to read. They're educational.

Any questions you got don't hesitate to ask, I've only been at this for right about a year. I bought this YJ right around xmas last year. So I'm still learning too. I started ou thinking I would keep it mostly stock. That idea is long gone!
