Chrisnvegas The project farm dude did an air filter test.
As I figured, unless you are driving a Miata on a clean track, avoid K&N like Covid. No, even more than Covid. It's probably more deadly for your engine.

Wix was the best, all around.

Awesome Anyone have any advice on working with the D35 factory LSD?

Turns out my mom's TJ has the factory LSD and 3.73 gears, which is a good thing, but some of the friction plates were busted. So I have to rebuild the LSD. I can't for the life of me figure out how I'm going to get the c-clips back on the axle shafts. There's a spring that pushes the side gears in against the c-clip. It's fine when the spider gears are in it, but you have to pull the cross pin out to get the c-clips in, and without the cross pin nothing holds the spider gears in. I had to use a slide hammer to get the c-clip off of the bent axle shaft.

EDIT: I wonder if I could cut the cross pin in the middle? Like cut a big slot in it like this ][ so I can get the c-clips on? Then I could take that pin out and replace it with a new one? Thoughts?

EDIT again (better illustration):

Ok, cool!

Chrisnvegas I think I'll head to the dunes (Death Valley) tomorrow.
A not-as-hot front blew in and it's going to be a brisk 102*

I'll have to bring a jacket.

Anyway, if you can use it, it's yours. But I think it won't work in a TJ.

I have a giant shopping list already. I'm starting out with

oil pan gasket
rear main seal
steering rebuild
brakes

I'll start a build thread after I start and get pics. It's been a while since I've had a project to wrench.

Do you never drive your Jeep? My Duratracs were almost 10 years old when I replaced them, but they were worn more than halfway.
