However, I owned 2 GM trucks and had a fraction of the problems with them as I did with my fords.

My father bought my 97 Sonoma which wound up totaled and then promptly bought my 99 Tahoe which he still has.

I digress. That statement brought back bad memories. You must have had better luck than me. Lol

Drove the jeep to the battlefield cat dealer to pick up my new sthil ms-461 arctic with a 24"bar then drove the jeep into the bush to make a fire and cook some food it was -30*C with out the wind about -35 to -40 with it and I can say its a wonderful thing having heated handles

I've had good luck with both, but my Fords were always toys, not my dd. That being said, alot of problems went un-noticed(hwy vibes, wandering, etc.) I have a stockpile of different parts from rigs I've had, that get re used on the jeep. My cv shaft was free, I have some new f250 towers to use, super 88 kit, and alot of 8.8 parts, and other random crap. I still prefer my jeep over every one of my past rigs(besides the yj)

So I sealed up the rear and refilled with the cheap stuff. Reinstalled the shaft and the popping was still there (That fluid was terrible and needed to be replaced anyways). Pretty sure its the CV joint, after some questionable parking lot testing. Going to get a needle fitting to grease it tomorrow and hope that fixes it. It could be binding again, but it seems odd to me that it would randomly start doing it again after I adjusted the pinion angle last time, and the feel is different. FWD for now. I can't tell if these marks are new or from the first time it was binding:




Nevertheless, I am almost done with the skid. Needs a couple more layers of paint and it's ready. Also started painting several of the 44 parts.

Changed the oil to 10w-40 maxlife in hopes that it would help my high mileage 2.5. Seems to like it!

Got the new skid on, put front driveshaft on, tightened intake bolts to get rid of tea kettle, dropped her at the muffler shop. The saga of the blown 4.0 is almost complete.

Rebuilt the front CV shaft with a greasable centering ball (a.k.a. socket yoke) as well as all new U-joints in both front and rear shafts. I liked the greasable socket yoke because it is reinforced where they taped it for the zert fitting. It also has a seal on top to retain the grease. As long as I keep up with regular greasings I should be fine.






I also picked up this Peak 400 Watt power inverter for $30, it was $20 off.

Doh! Took it all to scrap. Some of the pipe was rusting through. I figured the muffler wasn't far behind. Sorry. I should have cut and saved it

Decided I am just going to have to do a dual exhaust. It sounds so cool on the 4.0

What is a best flow master for a low noise with the 4.0
I had a 44 on my ZJ 5.2 and it sounded great is it gonna be as good with the 4.0?
