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.
Swapping the VC is a huge expensive PITA. It is a whole lot easier to just swap to a 231 or a 242 TC then it is to put out a bunch of money into a 249 and still end up with an inferior TC. The problem with the 249 is that it never truly locks up into 4wd. It is great on the road because it automatically goes into 4wd so in the snow it is great. Off road not so much.

Yeah sincityj just swap in a 231 or 242 its so much easier and all you have to do is bolt it on.

I swapped my 249 out for a 231 from the JY it took all of like an hour to do and I then had a good working transfer case.

They told me it was because of the "Poor Machining Quality" of the lockers but I think your answer is the truth. If they would have bothered to ask I would have told them I was going with electric actuators so cable routing isn't an issue. Their loss I guess.

I mix it up yo!! I listened to some hank williams jr on the way in to work this morning if that helps you at all? I can maybe start reciting some Bad Religion, Pennywise, Face to Face, Motley Crue, Iron Maiden or stuff along those lines too? The other night I was listening to David Allen Coe channeling my sexist racist hillbilly exploder build side but I'd get kicked off the forums if I dropped any lines from most of what I was listening to of his.

Remember the little battle with my grinder a few weeks back I mentioned. I was rocking the bad relgion shirt that day. Don't tell me there's no god since my bad religion shirt saved my guts!!! LOL Easy-E probably wouldn't have done that for me!



And by the way, I'm thinking about selling off the exploder and picking up something that gets a bit better MPG and is easier to park!









Yes, I would totally rock that thing around town!!! May even slide the biggest sub I could under that spare tire and bump me some Slick Rick and Too $hort even!

The Ox Lockers had poor machining when they first came out. There were quite a few complaints about it. They have since been cleaned up. I had my Ox locker installed by Dans Driveline. They went through everything with me. They made me do the initial cable adjustment so that I would know how to do it in the future. I did have to do a few cable adjustments after that and I did break one cable. I really liked the Ox, so much so that when I started building new axles for the Jeep there was no doubt what I was going to run.

This is completely understandable and I respect them for not biting off more than they feel comfortable chewing.

That being said, years ago Dans Driveline installed an OX locker into my YJ, then when I relocated the shift knob to a place I liked better, they adjusted it perfectly a second time. Mine NEVER had any problems with ever going out of adjustment or failure or anything else. I originally purchased an OX because of its reputation and reliability on many of thr competition rigs I looked at, I would definitely consider one again if/when my current lockers fail.
