Did you torque the bolts to spec? As I recall, the end that attached to the chassis is difficult to reach, and I had to use a six-inch extension to get a torque wrench on it.

Your rear axle should be the same ratio, unless someone butchered things.
My 94 had that same ratio. I put it on 33's and drove it with the stock gearing for a while. 5th gear is basically useless...

Let me echo what Boojo35 said about lube. When I first got my YJ, the latches and locks on both doors were very stiff. When I pulled the door panels, I recall that one of the plastic "fittings" was...

Electrical gremlins can be hard to chase down. The first things I always check are the wires and connections. Our YJ's are at least 25 years old now, so the copper breaks down in the wire, rust can...
