No JB weld. I don't remember it being thin, though I put mine almost on top of the spine where it might have been thicker.

Ya, I ended up rebuilding it. Now I just have to get the transmission figured out. Engine runs and soundS great. Ive been sick so really havent felt like digging into it. If I'm remebering correctly you need to move that breather back down further. Looks like you have it right on top of the front p...

Since I'm changing the transmission, the original T-case shifter had to go, and it sucked anyway. Since no one makes anything for the Dana 20 that will fit well in my truck I'm stuck with making my own. Cable shifters will make for the cleanest install. Grabbed up some scrap 304L stainless from twin...

Was able to borrow a good dial indicator and get everything put together. It took 2 transfer cases to come out with a good one. Replaced all the seals and bearings, and a couple gears that were pretty ugly. PO probably shifted it terribly. The intermediate gears were all chipped up. http://i59.photo...

mattawa- I think pic one tells the story. the 06 wire harness I have doesn't match the wiring diagram either color wise. i'll have to recheck the color codes you have for an '05. interestingly my '98 diagram shows DG as #2/field driver as (-) not (+). do you have a diagram for a 98 showing that as ...

You can replace the blue gear that is on the output shaft when you do the sye, you just have to figure out the tooth count verses tire size and gear ratio. They make a aftermarket one to correct the speedo. I believe I went with advanced adapters when I did mine I think. Not with the short sye's, t...

I have the Teraflex Extreme Short kit in my TJ. It was the best deal pricewise at the time. Hasn't given me any problems so far. I'm also using the Dakota Digital adapter Wrongway mentioned.

Anyone have any recommendations for a halfway decent dial indicator? Are the Harbor freight options junk?

I ended up needing to replace more things than planned and need to reset bearing pre-load on the Dana 20 front output. It's been a nightmare so far. :lol:

Like said elsewhere, talk to Final Touch in Kennewick. Could look more like a soft top than a tent if they can do it... Thought about a soft top style, but I don't know that it would go that well with the thriftside lines. Looks good on a commanche, or a J-Truck with a townside bed: http://www.soft...

Is that DDM kit a plug and play type of deal, or do you have to cut and splice? Drew, I had the fatboys in my amazon cart the other day. Haha, funny thing, quadrapuke is cheaper even with my prime acct. No splicing, the wiring harness hooks to the battery and then plugs into one of your factory lig...

Re: ARBs parts prices

I can't seem to open anything that will list prices on parts for my ARB. I have a 99 TJ rear D44 and 4:88s You might do well to call ARB. There were a couple different generations and if you have an older one the parts diagrams are different. Ran into that problem. They're quite good over the phone.
