I was thinking about doing this. My dad and I just need to use our welder some more

Most likely Transfer case bushing is gone and needs replacing

That would make more sense. It only makes the noise in 2wd sometimes, but in 4wd it makes the noise more.
Thanks.

Got my control arms and brakes all buttoned up. Ended up just redoing my rear brakes after I pulled the drums off and what hadn't already disintegrated just fell out... But she's together now and rides like a dream. Nothing but impressed with my Duroflex arms.

Did you find one? I've been on that quest myself and just get more confused with each top I look at.

Left my 12.50" mark on the parking lot we hangout at. Tomorrow she'll be getting a wash and then parked while I leave for the Air Force

Must have been poorly maintained... my 4 banger lasted 215k before it needed a rebuild

Had to put the hard top back on after driving to Abilene to check out a soft top I was planning to buy. Apparently the guy decided to leave out the door surrounds, the pivot bracket the top mounts to the rollbar, tailgate mount and the tailgate bar.

Do u still run a 4 banger? I got this jeep with about 110000 on it about a year ago and just started building it so it hasnt driven much but ive serviced it oil change tranny and diffs. Since I bought it its had a ticking sound that ive been meaning to get looked at. The po said it was a smaller lifter and it wasnt a problem lol
