Glad to hear it, I completely agree + the older body style with the steel fenders are cooler anyway. Too much plastic on a JK

Whelp make an offer on it! I'd prefer to be able to get rid of them both pretty quickly, but whatever.

The plan is to do a currie 4" with flat belly.

I won't be ready for 33" tires until at least mid summer(after lift is complete)

Figure it would be bet to start with the foundation of great axles, then build up from there. That way, I won't have to regear twice, or upgrade axles after the lift is installed, etc.

By the time I sourced and got factory D44s and built them, I would have been within a few hundred of the assemblies. But these came built, with a warranty!

I was working with what I had and there are better choices out there. Currie's trackbar is a good option. Savvy makes a gas tank skid that can be moved back a little for a little extra clearance. The combination of them both would have probably made my issue a non-issue. Even as it sat, the diff cover hit the gas tank skid during hard articulation. I just hit the gas tank skid with a grinder where it hit. I didn't take off much metal but enough that they didn't contact anymore.

Edit: Who is doing the Ox install?
I wanted to have Adams do it but they refused to install Ox lockers. I ended up going with 4WD. Not my first choice but they do have a 36,000 mile/ 3 year warranty which is a plus.

Thanks for the info on the clearance. I have a new savvy tank skid in the living room waiting to be installed so I should be safe. I didn't realize it also provided some clearance in the back for the diff.

Yes but the warranty starts from the day that you buy them... not the day that you start using them. So I suggest that you get some Khris type motivation. You should already have that puppy up on jack stands!!!

Dave I thought that I heard somewhere that it had to do with the cable adjustment. They did not want to do something that the customer could screw up by adjusting the cable wrong then try to blame them for a bad install.

Hmm, interesting... It's really not that hard. I could see if they had issues routing the cable. That might be a reason not to do the install. But the adjustment is pretty straightforward. Routing... not so much.

Hey guys, I am looking at a 1998 awd, ZJ. I am not 100% sure but I believe that the vc maybe going bad. Does anyone know how to swap it out? I did a search, but i couldn't find anything on how to do that? I could be way off base, but when making tight turns, like a u-turn, I can hear something that sounds like the front differential is locked. Sounds kinda like a rear end with welded spider gears taking a turn. Tell me what you think. This won't scare me away as the purchase of a new vc is only $350 and hopefully problem solved.
