Yup, its a Warn full floating kit. I installed it back in 1997. Still going strong. Before that I has a set of 1st gen Moser 1pc axles in there. The early sealed bearing were less than desirable....

Changed out the oil in my tranny and t-case, buttoned up the new windshield then took her for a spin around the lease.

Get a flow master or equivalent muffler. They won't blow.

True Dat

SKIZRIZ SAYS-"Pulled in, grabbed my fire extinguisher and tried to put it out.
I had it out, but heard the sizzle of liquid on hot metal, and it blazed right back up again.
The extinguisher was empty,the driver was out of the car, a fireman pulled in, with nothing more I could do I snapped a picture and left.
Came back through later, and the front end was completely burned to the ground.

This make three extinguishers I have used on other people's cars. Never on on my own (knock on wood)"
..

Like you, most of my recovery straps, come-alongs & chains are not for ME! And I've used my Extinguishers 2x on other peoples cars.
One guy almost punched me out. He WANTED it to burn!

This is the kinda whiny crap I would expect to see in the JK forum. We drive rough riding, leaking, gas guzzling CJ's. Rattle can it and throw it in your Jeep.

LOL I told a guy I work with the story. He has a Ford Escape that is a border line lemon.
He said he would have tackled me to stop me from putting out the fire.
