Today 12:35 AM
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.
Thank you for the offer. My dad ordered a Ten Factory replacement shaft. It arrived yesterday. I am just waiting for the Lubelocker to show up now. Really should have just done an 8.8 swap, but this Jeep is staying mostly stock and putting coil buckets on an 8.8 sounds like a lot of work.

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.

Have mine in my parts bin... including the contacts for a 3rd brake light which never made it onto my late 95 model

Guess they ran out of 3rd brake lights or were just happy to get a drivable YJ off the line at that point to take 1996 off.

shaggyjim At six years around here the tire places get finicky and at ten years they won’t do anything with them but take them off. What does your date stamp on the side wall say?
Mine are ten years old but have spent most of there life inside and are in great shape but if they were outside tires that got a lot of run time I would be looking at new ones.

Awesome Well, how many people are you comfortable with killing when your tire blows at highway speeds on a corner in the inside lane?
