Wanting some opinions on some fellow jeepers with more experience than I. New to diffs and went to change fluids on my family's "new" 97 sport with 120k on the clock, found this when I popped the cover. Pretty bummed to say the least but after a little bit of research I found out that it might not be so bad. Looks to me like the R&P may be okay but i'm not sure. I didn't have any indications that anything had happened....no jerking, grinding, etc. I have 31" tires on it I intend to stick with, 3.55 gearing, 2"BDS lift on the way. This jeep is just for family fun, running fire roads, hunting, nothing extreme by any means. I don't want to dump a lot of money into it as i've fixed plenty of neglected stuff already from the PO. Thinking of two things: replacing the spiders, or putting in a Truetrac. Can I get away with doing either of these by themselves, or should I do a complete overhaul? I'd really like to do the Truetrac I think, especially since the wifey gave me the ok.
