haha I dont have to deal with a vacuum system any morelol
im not looking for the view of a YJ purist i'm looking for the view of a practical jeeper who likes to hit the trail. I like the idea of not having to rely on vacuum cuz it does go out. i'm always locked in now... so I will burn in hell gladly

p.s. dont let me ruffle your feathers I was just kidding

Just kidding about, buring in hell or putting the far better shaft with a bigger stronger u-joint in place of the junk you had before?

Thumbs up on the upgrade! I had been switched to the wire activated with a lunchbox locker and still had issues with it not wanting to engage or disengage at times which was very frustrating. Had another internal issue also causing me axle seal problems. Switched to the TJ shaft on that side, no more leaking seal and I can count on everything working 100% of the time now.

if your going tj axles might as well make it worth your while and get the D44s front and rear. With the rubicon rear d44 you get disc brakes. And with the D44 in the rear there is also a 35 spline option from aftermarket with arb lockers... or you can go with regular 30 spline chromo shafts and your choice of rubi lockers, arb, detroit, or spool.

All he did was replace to 2 piece axle shaft on the passenger side with the 1 piece TJ shaft. Not the entire axle.
