Found out that I broke passenger side front axle when I got it stuck the other day. I'll be replacing it tomorrow. I drove with it broken for a ways so I'm wondering if I should open up the front diff and check for damage

Replaced my rear drive shaft U- joints, cleaned up and rust encapsulated the drive shaft and greased the splines. I'm guessing those U - joints were originals. And at 200k...they did not feel like being cooperative.

Hopefully the axle seals kept any debris out. But, yeah, that made me cringe. Lol

So I think I figured out what is causing my occasional delayed starting. If I wiggle the key in the ignition before turning it over it fires right up. Sound the ignition switch is going bad?

Returned the remote start I got on Black Friday for it. Best Buy sux lately. Can't find one to install in a 30 mile radius and they're all booked through January. Now that I found the remote start write-up thread here I think I'll attempt it myself.

You should add mounting tabs and bolt it directly to where the stock roof rails were bolted in an get rid of the stock rack.
