Clean the housing out with break cleaner. Weld the spider gears.

no issues, ofcourse Its a jeep so I drive it easy and just cruise. In corcners they make a little noise, but the wear is fine, even with the fronts for sure. Its different in parkinglots tho, increases the turning circle a bit I'd say.
In the snow tho, wow. I love it, it just digs and goes forward even if I punch it hard. Handles the corners very well also.

I do plan on putting an 8.8 in the rear this year, but not because this one is welded. Just because I have one and plan 35's down the road so why not.

I have an aussie in the front and I love that. on my old zj, I bought it with a rachet style locker in the rear. It was the worse driving experience I've ever had. clunkys locked and unlocked everytime you let off the gas or pushed on the gas. No clue why anyone would do that in the rear.

I welded my front end. I wanted to be able to "pull" myself over obstacles if need be. It work great unless I'm in areas of high traction. I have been thinking about my options for the rear. The only thing holding me back is that my M/T's aren't cheap tires.

I put a powertrax in a 79 Dodge and did very well with it. Occasionally the setup would release a binding and I would get a "pop" but that was not often. You had to be sure to use the lightest wt gear oil applicable to the vehicle. Traction was good. I nver had anu broblems and I can't tell you how many miles I had on it. I just sold the thing and it had over 70K on the second odometer I had installed since the powertrax was put in.

The other day I was at a local 4wd shop and they had an advertisement brochure for something that looked like a powertrax, but claimed to be better. (If it wasn't why would they build it?) I may look into that for the new 77 I just got.
