Well that sucks. I got one for my front D30 so maybe it won't bomb? Lol

I've heard them referred to as the "Grenade 80".

I believe it is both. Mine is defiantly an auto locker and says detroit truetrac inside.

The TrueTrac is an lsd with gears instead of clutches. It's the best lsd you can get in a lot of opinions. It also cost more than an auto-locker so I bought the Lokka lockers, aka Aussie lockers front n rear for less than a TrueTrac.

[QUOTE="pmurph131;33764930"]

I considered getting an 8.25 off a liberty for this reason but I think the ABS is three sensor and the XJ is four. Or the other way around. Hopefully sng88 will guinea pig this for me. I could always disable the ABS too, but then I might have issues with inspections if they want to nitpick.

Other option is a Detroit TrueTrac, but i'm not sure if that's a good idea for a D35, even if I'm not wheeling.[/QUOTE/]

At this point, i just wanna get the axles installed. Probably not this year, but I've been leaning more towards a new Truetrac for my 8.25. But I would still like to do the disc swap if it falls in my lap for cheap.

And it also has zero warranty when using with 33's and up or off pavement use. Worthless. Lol pay 600 dollars for a product that kinda locks the diff and has a insta voided warranty

I had the Jeep parked for a bit. Last night I got up under it to look over the steering. The steering box nut that keeps loosening may have an extra washer or some weird issue that resulted from improperly swapping boxes with my parts car.

Right now it has the nut, a springwasher and then a big fenderwasher and finally the pitman arm.
The hole in the fenderwasher is oversized and the springwasher doesn't make full contact with it's face.

Can anyone take a look at their steeringbox and see what the washer/nut stack looks like? Maybe snap a pic?

I need a new box for sure, mine is leaking pretty bad from the steering shaft. No drops on the ground but the underside of the Jeep is getting wet from it

Temporary but effective solution to my window woes...

Also installed some hushmat while I had it apart. WELL worth the time and little effort. Much quieter, door sounds like a modern door rather than a 1980s truck door.

Yep. Until I can get to the junk yard and find a good regularly and set of tracks. It's those Command hooks. Works pretty good.

Roads have cleared up enough here that I'm going to look at the damage to the Jeep. Hopefully I can just go pick up some ujoints and drive it home and not bother with having it towed. Get it free through my insurance, but still. I'm gonna be pissed if the yokes got ****ed up and I need a new driveshaft. They're not exactly easy to find for an MJ with how many different lengths there were.

Got my stupid Honda unstuck this morning and back in my parking spot. Tried to drive up the main driveway to my uncle's on Sunday and get it stuck after about 10 feet.

I have a complete catalog by application of dana/spicer light vehicle driveshafts somewhere. It'd tell you want donors to check and what lengths they have. PM me your email address and I'll forward you a copy if you need it.
