Start by pulling the steering wheel, then the springs and gears making sure to keep them in order. Eventually you'll get to the one that holds the lock cylinder in place. Its a *****! I've only watched a friend of mine do it in my kitchen, 10 years ago. Fully knowing what he was doing, it took 3.5hrs.

If you can get it to turn there's just a release button to pull the cylinder out, at most you might have to loosen the plastic shroud I can't remember if there's an access hole for the button

Sorry bud I only remember my dad doing it when I was a kid and it took forever. The other guys on here seem to know what they are talking about though.

I know right where to find a d44a. I don't wanna buy 2 axles to get the lsd and none of our yards wanna part out the axles.

Got the XJ back yesterday. Transmission separated from the engine slightly and only had one bolt holding it tight, causing it to damage the crank position sensor when I started it twice afterwards. Thus leading to my no start condition, lol just my luck. Shop reset the timing, replaced the CPS, and repositioned and rebolted in the tranny for $450 including the OEM CPS. A little over what I would have liked but oh well.

That's never bothered me with any of my manuals, but I will say I thought I would miss the 5 speed in my old XJ but I don't. The trusty AW4 does just fine by me so far, only thing I do miss is other XJ owners jealousy.

He's an angel dressed in oilskins; he's a saint in the "Sou'wester,"
He's a pluck as they come, or ever can;
He's a hero born and bred, but it hasn't swelled his head,
For he's just the U.S. Government's hired man.

I learned to drive in a standard. For a sports car or a dedicated trail rig or some such, I would want one. But honestly for a DD like this, I vastly prefer the free hand that comes with the automatic.

Both my vehicles are 5 speeds. However last night when I got my VW stuck in snow banks. I really wish it was a auto. So my gf could've drove while I pushed.

See I thought manual sucked off road, made some things more challenging but you have more control with an automatic.

I've been driving a manual for so long, I forget I have that free hand when I drive the ZJ on road trips.

Manual suck offroad?! You can put the jeep in 1st gear and 4l. Hop out and walk next to your jeep lol. On some obstacles you're right. You wear thru clutches. But I always have had stage 3 clutches.

I did that during a parade once, ran out of candy so I walked up to the jeep in front of me
