Yep, sure is. I seriously wonder if that thing moves man,lol. If you go to Circle and Platte, you'll see mine beside the shop I used to work at in tower plaza too. If you drag the google guy down to street level, on circle, and look behind shortstop, you'll see my sporty KJ lowrider
FnJeep is a local junk parts company for Jeeps. If you sport one of their stickers, you'll get a discount on their junk. The things we have tried to get from them in the past when a customer wanted a used part, we would go thru multiple parts that were blatantly wrong, or broken/damaged from removal. I once called them about if they had any Libertys coming thru, as I was looking for cruise control parts. They said they just got a 2001 Liberty in, and I could have the cruise off it . A day or two later I called to see if they had the vehicle pulled down yet, and was told, oh, we sold that outright, our bad. That said, I have zero confidence in what they have. So when we who know, see an FnJeep sticker, we just snicker, and think, "suckers". I'd rather sport a JBA sticker.
I've had IFS AND SFA. I'd rather have the ability to manually lock and unlock the hubs but that's just me. Then again, I'd rather have an OLD car than a New one any day of the week and twice on Sunday. Just a personal preference.
I've had old and new, and manual locking hubs and no lockouts. All have their merits. I don't have lockouts on my jeep. I also don't have a center disconnect. I prefer this setup over the other choices honestly in most cases. Lockouts do have their place though, and I won't even discuss auto locking hubs(puke). Old vehicles tended to be rather simple, and just worked. They also tended to require constant work to keep them running. You also didn't hear about 200k miles on old engines either. Newer engines and vehicles requires greater knowledge and skills and tools to work on. If you have those things, its easier than the old stuff. Injected vehicles are easier to diagnose and repair and running right than any carbed engine. I can also walk around my jeep with it running and not get a headache from the fumes in the exhaust. 75k miles on my jeep, and I'm not even concerned about wear on it yet. IFS vs SFA, again each has its merits. For the casual offroader or wannabe, IFS is more than enough. SFA works ok for paved work, but for offroad use it can be superior as well. There is a place for each in the market, but not a lot left for the old stuff. Carbs are going away even on the older stuff. Less issues with engines running funny on steep grades while rock crawling on a throttlebody injected engine vs a carbed.
