Hey NorcalYJ92 I had a thought to help with your commute for the run. If you are not working on the sunday before see if you can stay at somebodys place the night before.

yea you really need to upgrade that rear axle especially if you plan on locking it i used the stock vacuum set up but i did some improvements to it i used some of those clamps that you pinch and then release and they tighten... i put those over the hoses and then released it and it holds it on nice and tite and then just to be extra good and because i had nothing better to do i put rvt all around the bases they hold really good like to the point where i can flex the jeep and stretch the hoses and they still dont fall off

OX locker is a cable type locker and posi-lock is for the front axle to engage 4wd.

he is refering to the vacuum disconect system that connects the two shafts on the passenger side. The tjs converted to a one piece shaft just like the xjs (although i have heard of some xjs having a disco too)


Norcal just google it or do a quick search in the yj tech forum also yet again on the trail run you can look at Bob (bigsquats) set up

Correct! the Posi-lock is the brand name for the company that makes the cable system to replace the vacuum system.

I think you'd be better off, taking 65 to 80 to Sierra College to Hazel to 50, early enough in the morning there shouldn't be too much traffic. I'll be taking 49 all the way down to P'ville but only so I'm not dropping back west.

no because it cost 100 bucks you can do it for like less than 15

unless you plan on buying a locker and installing it before the run i would say just wait and look at Bob's set up and im not sure who else going has done it and then go from there but yea you can make one for way cheaper than 100 bucks

I wouldn't pay $100 for one. Read this thread.... http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/home-made-posi-lock-write-up-595515/

It's easy to do Bob and I both run a home made setup.


As far as the commute goes, I'm still down for camping Monday night if anyone else is interested. I would just figure a few beers, some grillin, then off in the morning.

so i gps'd it both ways and 50 is a little bit longer but according to time its the exact same rather i take 49 or 50 but 49 is a bit curvy same as 193
