Regear around here is $1000 parts/labor for one axle. I'm trying to keep the cost down as much as possible but I just can't see spending $1k for new gears when I really need to be running 4.88's with...

Yes, it was the u-joint closest to the t-case. It was clear the u-joint was trashed just from eyeballing it. Take a look at yours and see if it's clearly all boogered up. Mine was pretty hard to miss...

Blew a u-joint on my Tom Wood's rear drive shaft. Jeep has been vibrating and it's gradually been getting worse. Finally had the time to diagnose last night and yup, one of my u-joints is toast....

Front driveshaft vibration. Bad pinion bearing?

My dashboard and steering wheel are vibrating like crazy. Front diff is leaking badly and the vibe happens at acceleration between 25 and 50mph. If I throw her into 4WD the vibe almost disappears.
