I love this Jeep! I will tell you the wireless lights are just the best damn thing ever! I have been doing some winching and had to wait for something, and just pushing the button to turn them on or off was great.. I would keep the front axle, but I have heard that Dana 30 with e-lockers are a ticking time bomb. If anyone has any history with this then shoot me a message.
So I am not sure..
One thing I will say is the girlfriend gets jealous when driving through town and random women say "Nice Jeep! Can I drive it?"

On my Smittybilt XRC 8 comp winch.. After Mudfest I went to clean my rope.. I could not get the lever to select free spool! It was stuck! So I decided since it was submerged I thought It would be a good time to rebuild it. So I looked it up online and found the general consensus was the grease was too heavy.. So I pulled the end cap off and notice there was no sign of water making it into the gear box, the paper gasket was in great shape. So with the end cap in my hand I tried the lever and it was still stuck.. So I cleaned it up and it was still binding.. So I pulled the pin and tap the handle.. I heard something hit the wall behind me.. I got to looking and seen a detent spring and well full of crap! I assume that it was so full the bb would not go down! So I cleaned it out with brake cleaner and packed it with heavy lithium grease, replaced the spring and used a 0.177 bob from my sons BB gun. Put the pin in and tried it.. It was still stuff but works!
