Thanks tslewisz for the link, I just thought I was doomed to put up with it forever.

Finally witnessed a D35 axle shaft failure first hand.



It was at the very top of this hill climb, attempting the final 3' vertical step on a stock TJ axle sporting 35" KM2s. I was shocked it lasted as long as it did.

It happened at 1am, in the rain no less.

Good times.

That's exactly what it was! 3 new shift pads on the Mode Fork and the thing works like a champ now. Plus no more oil leaks now. Some how the speedo got f'ed up though in the process. Going to have to figure that out now .

This should help. There are a bunch of numbers which relate to the tooth count on the speedometer gear. You put the bracket in so it spans the corresponding numbers. I think the stock tooth counts are something like 39T, 40T and 41T. 41 would be for a Jeep with 205's. The next time would be 215 and the largest is 225, IIRC.

I wouldn't go over 33" with a D35. Was he locked up?

Yeah, I had some 33's on a D35, that was locked. Never broke anything with 4.88 gears.

Had the 4 banger though, that helped alot I think. Might not have held up so well with another 70HP and 4.88s.

Sweet, I figured I buggered up something with the clocking, I should've noted which position it was in when I removed it, but at the time I didn't realize there was 3 different positions!

Next step is getting this thing jacked up a few inches and some mud tires.

^^^ That guy has Lots of awesome projects on one of the jeep forums. I'm especially fond of the safari roof he built for his LJ. I'll have to see if I can dig up those threads and link.

Tons of reading and photos here. This guy has an entire series of projects going on. If I weren't a tard, I'd copy some of the photos and post them, but the link just seems so much easier.

Friend bought a YJ so I offered to pick it up for him if he paid for gas, I had to go there anyway for other business so free trip for me.


I picked up a 99 XJ just over a month ago and have been getting it fixed to resell. Had to tow it home because it wouldn't move on it's own when I bought it. I am now up to 4 Jeep Cherokee's that I own, a '94, two '99's, and a '00.
