I'll have some cold ones on ice.
I am going down Sunday afternoon, probably try to stay between 8 and 11 areas, maybe the sound side depending on people, Look for the rooftop tent

Ah, Front = Rubi's only. True. But you never know.

I saw your post on nc4x4. That guy was very unspecific about it, but I very highly doubt that is a rubi housing. If it was a rubi housing that "carrier" would be a locker. It is probably a waggy 44, which definitely isn't worth $100 in that condition.

If you go with a 44 (front or rear) I recommend using a 3.73 down carrier and thick cut gears. That way if you ever break a gear set you can upgrade to JK gears.

When I left work it was hiding under the ZJ, when I opened the door it jumped right in. It looked a lot like my wifes old cat who died recently after being with her for 17 years, so I drove home and gave it to her. She immediately fell in love with it, named it Kismet, and now it's sheeting all over the house.....but I got hubby points, The dog keeps looking at it like it's dinner, her other cat is off sulking, and the kids keep carrying it around.

A day in my life.

Anybody know why an engine would blow white smoke out of one tailpipe?

Not losing oil or coolant. Smoke just smells like really strong exhaust fumes.
