Quick question, how long is your upper link vs your lowers up front? Pic of your frameside bracket?

All links up front are 32 3/8" bolt hole to bolt hole.



Pics of frame side brackets

Found my problem with the ARB


This isn't supposed to look like this...




And this sure isn't supposed to fall out when I remove the diff cover.




I believe what happened was when I removed the ARB air line from the bulkhead fitting that the copper tube fell into hole a little further which caused the copper line on the inside to come into contact with the ring gear. I never pulled the cover during the build so I never saw this before I drove it. Obviously driving it around chewed threw the copper tube. I will call ECGS tomorrow and order another seal housing. Only crummy thing is I have to pull my carrier to replace it, which means tearing my axle all the way down... ugh.

You're right. I enjoy having a selectable locker though. I've had auto lockers in the past and they're a pain anytime between obstacles. This damage was my fault, i messed up when I pulled the fitting and reinstalled. I know now what I did wrong and I cant blame anyone but myself.

Have a trip coming up soon so I wanted to knock a few things out real quick.


First thing I did was install some rock lights. These are the All4offroad lights. http://all4offroad.com/index.html




Then I built a spare rear driveshaft. After my 1st trip out where I busted a driveshaft yoke I've always been a little worried about my driveshafts.


Went to the JY and picked up a ZJ front driveshaft for $30




Cut out the stock 1.75x.120 tubing and replaced it with some 2x.250" DOM cut to the length I needed which was 19.5" for a overall static driveshaft lenth of 34.75"

here's a picture of the stock tube cut out and the slip yoke already pressed into the new shaft tubing




And then I welded it up and installed a brand new axle side 1350 Ujoint. Also in this picture is a new 1350 yoke with new 1350 Ujoint as a spare for my front driveshaft and 2 spare 1310 ujoints for my Tcase side.




Sorry I didn't take more pictures of the whole build process but it really wasn't that hard and only took about 2 hours from start to finish. The driveshaft is now painted and hanging up to dry.
