After getting stuck last night I finally decided to put my new to me double cardan driveshaft in that I've had since December after my reppenza unit bit the dust. Feels good to have 4wd for the first time in almost 8 months.

Is that a bolt in? Do some WJs have reppenza and some have CV?

My old driveshaft was a reppenza reppenza and no it wasn't bolt in I got the transfer case yoke from kolak and the pinion yoke came off a zj a guy I knew bought for the engine. The driveshaft itself came from a junkyard.

Old driveshaft is on the right new one on the left.

Did you do that yourself? if so how much fluid did you loose when replacing the seals, if you did.


Bot... Changed my crankshaft position sensor and cam shaft position sensor.

I just bought the OTC 9450 OBDII Scan Tool, ABS and SRS Code Reader. It is supposed to read and erase SRS and ABS codes. I am going to see if I can diagnose my airbag light with it. If so, I will let you guys know. It was $99 plus shipping.

Yes I did it my self but I didn't replace the seals I just zapped it off with an impact gun and put the new yoke on and torqued it to spec. I did have to use a gear puller on the transfer case yoke to get it off because my BFH didn't work on it like it did the pinion yoke.

So the shaft and axle yoke come from a ZJ and the x-case yoke is from Kolak? Does the x-case yoke from the ZJ not fit?

The shaft came from a wj the only reason I tried the zj axle yoke was because it was free the guy I got the yoke from had already sold the transfer case.

Ok, thanks. I've been junkyard cruising lately. Something else to add to the list...

The nozzle shoots such a small amount of water behind the vacuum nozzle, 95% of the water gets sucked out immediately. The remainder just air dries in a few hours, the same way a detail shop does it for a LOT more money.

I saw, but none specific to the Jeep Grand Cherokee. There was one who said it worked perfectly on his Wrangler.
