Don't freak him out again. The diffs are D44, the locker wiring on the front diff looks OEM, it appears to have Rubi style slip drive shaft, flares, and rocker guards. Plus the VIN says Rubicon.

At least I'm not the only one and though I try to contain it here, it's a powerful syndrome. I have almost zero tolerance for idiocy anymore.

You are correct, sir. My mistake.

Everybody makes mistakes, not making the same one twice is key.

The point is this: Everything I've seen you worry about in this thread is stuff you should have worried about BEFORE you bought the Jeep. There's no point in worrying about it now, you've bought it. So don't. It's a waste of your time and energy.

Take what you have, whatever it is, and make it what you want it to be. Spend your energy on that.

ETA: Also, think before you act (I know that's hard for you) and you won't have to edit your posts after the fact.

...especially editing them after somebody's already quoted them which just makes you look even worse.


....and all of this

The sticker is clearly wrong. While the diffs appear to be D44, maybe it is just me but there looks like remanants of old brackets on the axles that don't look right to me. Nonstock locker switches seem very suspect. Did he post picture of the driveshaft? I don't think I saw those. I agree that the flares and rocker guards look right and the VIN is obviously the best thing he has going for him, but it really was a simple question - what does the tag on the TC say?

EDIT: Personally I'm guessing it probably was a Rubicon from the factory, but has had some serious damage done to it and been rebuilt to try to maintain Rubicon characteristics.

Could his extra switches have been added to bypass the factory limitations?

Holy cow, when I was 18 I bought my first ride, a '73 Ford maverick. I think this guy did way better than me. I am still amazed at what I could do in my TJ when it was stock, let alone now.

OP - someone has a quote here "there are a million ways to build a jeep, pick one and do it" - you bought a canvas, not a painting!

Yeah, the stickers are wrong and I saw the brackets, too, but what's the deal with the rear upper CA? Is that triangulated?


The locker switches are odd, I just figured the PO like the illuminated switches.

As for the DS, there was a pic or two that have somehow disappeared (not cool, FirstTJ ). It was tough to see, but I looked very closely and I'm fairly certain is has at least a front slip-shaft. The OP has edited all of his posts and apparently thought it was prudent to delete much of everything.

Asking about the TC tag is certainly fair enough, but given the OP's infantile editing, I could not care less any longer. (see above post about intolerance for idiocy).

His Jeep is more of a mess than Lindsey Lohan on probation.

Depends if he comes back and wants help building this thing right, I suppose.
