Nowhere did anyone say the OP was dealing with a D60.

Everything I posted about driving with no stub shaft and the tone wheel location was based on stock parts.

I have no idea what the OP has for hubs on his D60.

Running stock D44 outers, so this is why I didn't mention it was a D60, as to the subject it was not relevant.

It's not a daily driver, so I really could care less about the stub shaft part of this!!

So the whole story goes: I had just got my rig back from BOR, it had been there for over 3 months. Getting new Hemi, tranny, drive shafts, axles, and a evo double throwdown suspension front and rear. So I was hot to get it out on the trail, when I picked it up everything worked flawlessly!!! Got it out to a small local place to off road, and I put it threw the ringer... Damaged the passenger A-piller (minor) got into the driver fender (minor) and at the end of the day busted a u-joint and mucked up the passenger stub shaft... So pulled both long and stub shaft, put it back together including the wheel spacer and 42" tire, and drove it home. (insert here the OMG don't do that speech's). While trying to air up to leave my OBA stopped working, on the way home I noticed Cruise Control didn't work, after I got home I realized remote start didn't work... Once home and trying to debug the OBA I realized the front ARB locker had stopped working as well. So after everything was working fine, then seemingly everything falling apart nearly at once, I was inch's away from calling my installer and throwing a fit!!!

However I decide to debug it myself the best I could, after about an hour of using a test light I tracked down a very well hidden fuse for my OBA, replaced that---problem solved.

Spent another 30 or so minutes with the test light tracking down a loose wire on my front ARB---problem solved.

So I still had the cruise control and remote start, that's when I posted up here. Got a lot of good idea's but nothing seemed to pan out. At this point after the calamity of crap that stopped working I was sure it was something simple and easy, loose wire here or toast fuse there, something....... After hours of trying random thing's I was about to take it up to BOR and have them look at it to see if something went wrong in there programming. However a buddy of mine (Jeep dealer mech) wanted to take it into work on hook it up to the computer and see what he could see.

Moral of the story?? RANDOM CRAP can all happen at once!!!!! 4 issues all starting at aprox the same time, all unrelated!!!!!! GO FIGURE.

So a hood sensor fixed the remote start problem, and the typical clock spring was the cruise control's issue.

All fixed now, thanks to all for the idea's.

Now to just get my stub shaft replaced before my wheel falls off and forces me to run over a Prius.

Quick question. If you just dropped 40 grand on everything, what was another 1000 dollars to have Dana60 outers and never have to worry again?

Very fair question. An honest answer would consist of me telling you that I am a dumb arse. I had just got a new set of 5on5 spyderlock wheels, so naturally I wanted to keep them! I did not realize that ordering an D60 axle that kept the 5on5 pattern meant that it would have a D44 outer. So lack of knowledge and research on my part was / is this issue. Now that I am schooled on this fact, the spyderlock wheels will be going on my GF's JK (She wants some anyway) and I will be upgrading my outer to most likely a 6 lug and getting new rims.

I'm surprised that rob or Ian didn't remind you of that, let alone push out a unfinished project. That's very unlike robs level of OCD
