Hey everyone, I picked up a 8.8 w/ 4.10's the other day and have some basic questions. I have been looking for one for months and this is the first one that was in good shape, rotated freely, had the same gear-ratio as my front D30, and has disk brakes. I have done some searching but non of my answers were YJ specific. I don't intend on installing this for a few years, but I want to prep it and work on it a bunch to get it in the best shape possible. So in the meantime I hope you can tolerate my noobness on the 8.8 since it's so foreign to me, thank you in advance. So, just to get to know the new axle assembly I took some pictures and just wanted to confirm what I'm looking at, before I start taking it apart and cleaning it up, thanks.
This sensor I'm guessing is for the ABS? Can I just remove the sensor and cap it? Also in this pic is the fill port right underneath that sensor? Should I fill it all the way up with fluid since it's in storage for the next year or two? What fluid would you recommend for my YJ? Also why is there 3 holes on the flat-flange next to the pinion housing?
I have no idea what the bracket is facing the camera. But the bracket on the right is the spring-pack bracket. I need to grind both of these off correct?
I'm guessing this was the E-brake cable before it was cut?
Dead center of camera with the wet area, is this the axle vent port? Should there be a hose on this fitting?
