I'm guessing that ox is selectable? I'd prefer selectable instead of auto. But I know they're stupid expensive

A jeep is more like lego's. Its up to you how you want to build it. You can build it 1 million different ways.

Well alrighty. Ordered the artec truss and swap kit for the 8.8 last night. Is a rebuild kit the same as an install kit? Or do I need both when I get the gears? I do want everything new in there.


And as of about an hour ago, pulling into work(I work in a field basically. Darker than hell and raining cats and dogs. Person in front of me swerved off the road and I was wondering what the hell was happening, about the time he turned back I figured out why. 8 ft tall pile of millings (chewed up asphalt) in the road to fix pit holes. I went air-borne. Went up the side of the pile. Have no idea how I didn't flip. But now I've got one wheel pointed to the left and one pointed to the right. And I think my brakes are all clogged up with that crap because she don't wanna drive that well. I'm hoping it's just the drag link. But anyway, I guess it's time to fix/ upgrade that. So what is everyone running for aftermarket steering?

Ouch sounds like a tie rod to me. I put a spartan locker in my dana 30 a couple weeks ago and it found its weak spot yesterday. The yoke on my front half transfer case broke and spun the front driveshaft into my transfer case putting a hole in it.

That's another thing that scares me about running fwd. all I can think about is that driveshaft breaking and causing a hell of a scene when it destroys everything.
