Micky80 I just installed the Dorman 689-201 ODPA on my 06 TJ. My TJ has 75,000 miles and had normal wear on the gear. The shaft spins freely. But, after reading about some of the issues, I decided to swap out the original OPDA with the improved Dorman unit. Very easy job.

My '05 LJ has 90K miles on her.. and I am one to prefer to replace or service an item so it doesnt break on me, especially when I least need it to.. I am wanting some advice in regard to items to really look at as I plan on taking her to some Jeep rallys and will drive her there and back.
I recently had all the u-joints replaced, when I did the gear upgrade. I also needed the ball joints replaced. I have replaced the alternator. I followed Jerry's advise and had the tranny cooler installed. I have a PS hood louver to help keep the heat down. I do the usual oil and tranny fluid swaps. Is there anything else that I should consider? radiator? water pump, OPDA?
Post up.. I have some time between now and my next big road trip to a offroading get together.
Thanks
Dana
