    If it's high pinion it's a rev cut. NICE AXLE! Put stock ZJ shafts in it as they use a thicker U-joint and collar. They slide right in.

    thanks for info!
    Im not too sure what shafts are in it now but from what i am told and observed is the fork entrance on the axle that engages the double shaft section has been plated off.... so it is not hooked up at all but when I had her in 4lo and gunned it all 4 tires gripped so I am guessing it is a 1 piece shaft in there already or the engage mechanism is always engaged.

    But like i said i dont know too much yet so if anything doesnt make sense in the last paragraph then thats prolly why heh.

    If the fork has been plated off, then you probably already have the slightly stronger shafts in it now. From what I had found a few days ago on a different site, I believe the older Dana 30's can use the shafts from the newer TJ and ZJ Dana 30's which have better U-Joints

    Thanks for the info. I sure am learning alot with the project just like the last project, so that is always useful.

    Now for the updates:
    Brake lines are almost done just waiting on the flex line from rear axle to rear caliper to come in and that will be done...
    All four doors are now 100% working and no more squeeking...
    Front headlight is operational.
    she has a new valve gasket.
    new brushings for the sway bar links.
    did an oil lube and filter on her.
    new rotors in the front end.
    new battery.


    Plans for today is replace the inner grill/headlight housing since the current one is all cracked and broken and it wont pass safety without it.
    And replace the waterpump.
    Then she is off to the exhaust shop to button her all up and hopefully will be on the road some time next week.

    Updates:
    Brakelines are 100% done and bleeded.
    Waterpump is installed.
    New driveside front caliper has been installed
    She now has her Y pipe fixed and a new exhaust from y pipe back with new O2 sensor.... but found a new problem.... exhaust manifold has a crack in it so gotta rip that out so Tommy's exhaust can weld it which also gives GREAT prices on exhaust work.
    Front Grill housing is taken off and half way done moving old items(headlight alignment gears, light housings, wires etc) to the new housing then should be installed tommorrow.


    Also question.... When truck is in gear and throttle is pumped i get a clunk then when i let off i get another clunk after opening up hood and holding brake and reving engine i noticed that the engine moves upwards alot(more than normal I believe)... Checked drivers side mount and looks good but notice there is like a bushing or something... do these normally fail or loosen? any idea/tips on how to fix?

    Motor mounts. Cheap and easy fix. Also a common failure for older ZJ 4.0's
