Oh i passed it back to steve at the party. Unless he forgot it at jason's. I still have the Crosspin, bolt, and the driveshaft pinion for it though, forgot those were in the box, I knew something was missing.

If you want it check with him, though I am sure he will spot this, he seemed willing to part with it once, so Im sure you two can work out something.

Also grats on the lift, came out looking mighty fine!

hey thanks yup after the hard work we all put to put it in i must say i'm mighty please with everything and those who doubted the nitro shocks for being to stiff. let me just say there perfect definitely a bit stiffer then the "cadillac" shocks i had but not overly stiff and there is no axle hop or anything like that associated with overly stiff springs. So i'm glade that worked out cause i was a little nervous they would be to stiff.

Hey steve, you think i can take that trac lock off your hands?

Yeah, I normally would not post what was mentioned in a PM. I'm not a kiss & tell kinda guy. But.....since they were my words & I was being too lazy at the time to retype the same exact thing again, I decided to do a copy & paste.

That's good news about the Super axle Jeff. It should serve you well.

I may just have a trick or two left up my sleeve.

Or I can have the sides from the second axle downsized or ground down, it was hard to hear.

I figure I would be best to just buy new ones, and discover what this axle I bought is geared for and repair the brakes on it (what i was asking for, though I will probably buy the kit for my own axle as well).

If we want to move the Jeep at this point, I am willing to do that. I will make the detour onto the 805 tmrw to drop by the axle shop to get the right parts. Any votes on which of those I should do?

EDIT: Just got an email from the PO:

"I'm sorry to hear you're still having issues. I bought the rear 35 off
of a guy that had a 4cyl that came with stock 4:11 gears; he had
installed the locker. I don't know anything else besides that; I'd
never even taken off the rear diff cover. Good luck!"
good news. if you can get new parts for the existing setup, do it. I never heard of grinding gears to fit, but I guess they know what they are doing. If you can sneak past the guards and get the parts back in there will be no need to tow it. We can fix the brakes at the next repair party. What condition is your e-brake cable? Those are pretty cheap, if you order them online.

I'm excited about it. I will still go to pick-a-part and look for an 8.8 with 4.11 though. If I can get one for $80 then I will not have to regear the front. But either way I am GOOD TO GO.

Now I need to decide whether to go over or under. I am inclined to stick to 33's and stay under. No steering issues, no driveline issues, no messing with the front.

Plety of time to decide on that.

Well I am sure you remember the condition the brake springs and setup all was or atleast have a general memory on it from when we tore it all apart way back when in CC. If not, its pretty ugly and rusted and weak.

As for my cable, I will need to check that, though I would feel better with a second opinion as I have never checked one before. I do know i need a new spring for the Ebrake pedal, it sags and flops around on its own and triggers the light which is annoying.

You might want to check to see if the dealership recall was ever done to your ebrake assembly which addresses this issue. It's a free deal to whoever owns the Jeep.

the main thing with the brake cable is if it moves freely. usually they get rusted in place from age and disuse.

I had to add a spring to my e-brake

brakes are easy and a real positve feedback item because the differnce is readily apparent.

Checked the sites, none of the recalls apply to me.

Cept the front brake line one, but I have new brake lines in a different position so they can't rub against the wheel.

and the recall on parking brakes is for manuals only.

Other stuff involves old aftermarket replacements.

I will stop by the gear shop tmrw after school. Then when i get home check the brake line.

By the way the flopping and sagging of the ebrake is only when it is disengaged. Its tight when i put it on. I think its just a warn spring on it. But i will check the rest for safety.
