Just get a 3/8 dewalt impact, or a bit driver. The biggest tip I have is tighten before loosening them.

With the help of a buddy, I got my 8.8 and HP Dana 30 from a 99 Explorer and a 91 Cherokee.
The 8.8 is sitting at his place since I have a lame excuse for a garage and no room.
Here is the 30.


In the next month I will be buying the following:
4.56 gears and Master install kit
Super 30
Arb
Currie JJ to replace the axle side.

Before that I really need to degrease it and get the track bar off. Stupid bolt sheared off

Same thing happened to me!
You had a much better idea to take the trackbar; we just ripped the mount from the axle.

Bosch FP / TPS swap / G2 cover install

Decided to replace the fuel pump today due to 97k on the odometer and I just acquired the jeep. Jeep would take a couple cranks before starting if sitting for a couple days. Went with Bosch after some research on the forum. I did make a rookie mistake going cheap with the pump/stainer only which opened up a hole other can of worms. 3 hour job quickly turned into an 8 hour job trying to get the BS aftermarket strainer to sit inside the bottom of the fuel pump assy housing. Long story short, went a bought the Oem strainer and reinstalled all with no issues. Also threw on a G2 rear end cover while I ahead the tank down. TPS was replaced due to throwing a low/ high voltage code the previous day.

I love how easy it is to work on this jeep, nothing like my ridiculously packed engine bay on my F-250!

Baby Jeep is relatively happy today. Seals done, ebrake adjusted, cleaned the garage and packed tools in a new to me bag I picked up at a garage sale.

Can you afford the car? Have I provided you all the information you need on the car? Do you like the car? Then buy the car.

We installed a new starter on our 97 TJ. Too easy, it is a great short project if you ever need to do it. We went ahead and changed the plugs, ignition wires, distributor cap, and rotor just for the heck of it though they almost certainly were way overdue. I wanted to show my kids how all that stuff works.

Used it to do some body work. My boy ran the missus' car off the road, tore the splash guard loose, and bent the radiator support. Took it all apart and straightened the support but when it went back on the pass side was about 2" too far back. So, I parked it in front of the heep, stretched out the winch line, and pulled it forward. Everything lined up perfectly afterwards.

Today I aligned the Jeep, minus fixing the steering wheel, because I couldn't break the nuts loose on the drag bar. Put my extended brake lines on and bled the brakes. As well as fixed the driveshaft rub on the stock trans skid. Good day!

The name threw me for a minute. I guess FernBch doesn't make much sense anymore
