Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Yesterday I picked up some axles for my jeep: a high pinion D30 with 3.55's that needs a rebuild, and a welded 29 spline 8.25 with 3.55's that has no brakes on it.
These were the same status as my jeep itself, as in, get these out of my way!

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Didn't get any actual work done to the XJ this weekend, but did amass some more parts for it, and took my little boy romping around in the woods at our new house.
Mechanically, this jeeps works VERY well! The factory limited slip in the dana 35 is the first I've had in a jeep, but it really works great! Obviously not quite a locker, but when trying to make some trails on my property, I can mash the gas in 2wd and get a definite 2-tire rooster tail going.
Once I get the axles swapped I'll start getting a little more adventurous down at the creek.

Going from open diff to a lsd is a huge upgrade. I can attest to that for sure! Like stated no locker, but huge upgrade none the less.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

No work done on the XJ this weekend but I did get to replace the passenger side front axle on the Tacoma.

I gotta say, it was quite a bit easier to change my Tacoma axle than any shaft in my XJ. Maybe it was less rust or maybe it was a decrease in the amount of bolts that need to come undone to do the swap. In any case, I actually enjoyed working on the IFS. I didn't break anything and also I didn't use any swear words as opposed to the many I use when working on the Cherokee.

You obviously did something wrong in the swap then...
