I took apart the whole front axle to install new ARB o-rings and everything went smoothly. I opened up the rear to do the same and discovered chipped and cracked ring gear teeth. This job just got bigger, went to 4 wheel parts and ordered new gears. They should be here next week so I can install next Saturday, one week before Rousch. I'm glad I found it now instead of breaking it completely at Rousch and driving 7 hours home in front wheel drive

My CJ7 project is coming along. I won't be buying exhaust for it like I planned because of the gear thing with the other Jeep but I did trouble shoot the lights. Finally got all the lights blinkers and brake lights working. Just had to install a brake light switch on the brake pedal and the blinkers that were giving me so much trouble turned out to be corrosion on the fuse. The fuse was good because I checked it over and over but it just wasn't making a good connection, put some new flashers in too just to rule that out. I'll keep wrapping things up on this but it looks like the exhaust will be the only thing keeping this Jeep from driving down the street.

I ordered a full PSC hydro assist kit for my JK, and I dropped it off at 4 wheel parts to get my lift and everything else installed.

Over the past 2 weekends I pulled both axles completely apart installing new air locker o-rings in both and new ring and pinion in the rear. After I got the Jeep drivable again I tried balancing the left rear tire that I believed was giving me vibes on the highway. Turned out the wheel was bent as hell so I traded wheels with my spare. Unfortunately I never noticed before, but the spare tire wheel is only 9" wide and the rest are 10". I'm out of time and money to do anything about it so I'll be rolling out to Rousch Creek with one skinny wheel. At least it will be a smooth ride and when I get there my air lockers won't be all noisy.

Sold my tire carrier and picked up a Barnes bumper plate. I'm digging the rear clearance, now I need a fuel cell to get rid of the tank.
