Ive heard of the issues, its kind of hit and miss most of the time, but ive got some freinds over at Teraflex thatll help me out if I ever needed it. So far mine has done well. I wheel it the way it should be wheeled, and if im in 4lo then I wheel it as you should in low range...slowly.

that's true. if more people would realize you don't have to be bouncing the rev limiter to get over most obstacles trail rides would be a better time and there would be less broken stuff lol

I dont remember the last time I hit the rev limiter, only time it ever gets that high is if im sliding down dirt roads lol. But when it crawling its either in 4hi and under 3k or 4lo and under 1k. it has so much torque in 4;1 that it doesnt need any throttle.

My Dream XJ (curries, long arms, bead-locks, 4:1)

When the white xj was a baby, I got the green jeep with some of the big parts needed for the build. Traded my LS Comanche for the green one.

She still cleans up well. My other hobby comes with same size tires as stock XJs!
