ARB Headaches
So I've been hacking away at my jeep for almost two weeks now. I made a rookie mistake and didn't re-use my OEM Master shims which resulted in the locker not actuating due to air leakage. So I pulled the carrier to get back after it and basically start over on my backlash:banghead: and something caught my eye I remember reading in the instructions. According to the instructions some early model D44s had poor drainage channels and will not work with the ARB unless modified as it might force oil into the air system.

I have a 2011...Surely it was fixed by then right? :rolleyes: Doesn't look like it to me. I've included pictures of what I believe is the drainage and the diagram from ARB instructions. Am I looking at the right shit? I don't see any other type of drainage. I'm hoping someone can tell me I'm an idiot and it's fine but I don't see any other type of lower drainage.

Those are the drainage slots. So in those pictures is your axle right side up or up side down? If it's right side up it is strange that both drainage slots are on top.

I just went through installing an ARB in my 8.8 and had to drill a drainage hole.

Right side up. I thought it was kind of strange too

I would drill drainage holes and put it back together.
