    Looking for the diff gear experts in Jeep land. I know there are a lot of pix of Ford 8.8 gear patterns to look at - but they're not mine. I'm rebuilding an 8.8 for my TJ from scratch. However, it was previously mounted on a TJ so the welding is complete. All the shims, gears, and bearings...

  4. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    So after the worthless Dana 35 kicked the bucket for the second time, I decided to swap it out with a custom Ford 8.8 from East Coast Gear Supply. They recommended adding a SYE to replace my T-Case drop at the same time so that they could properly set the pinion angle. I took the project to my...
  5. Engines & Drivetrain
    When I bought my Jeep the P.O. told me they had the rear axle permanently locked. I was wondering if anybody knew how this is done as I would like to undo this, if possible, to lessen the wear and tear on my tires and drivetrain.

    It's Saturday so I can't call IRO for advice. I bought a Ford 8.8 that has an IRO TJ kit already welded on. Without much thought I ordered an IRO ZJ kit for the Ford 8.8. Now, I am looking at the measurements and locations, expecting to work on this during the weekend. It looks to me like the TJ...

  18. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Well...I went out for my first "wheelin" experience today. Managed to get stuck in mud/water up to the frame. After some rocking forward and backward, I ended up winching out.
