replace balljoints or whatever is broken and drive the TJ how it is :)


The front axle isn't the issue.  It was a good deal and with me trying to make the rig so I can drive to the trail, wheel all day and drive home.  It was a no brainer.   Since I missed the deal, the axle swap is off the table.

I read on the Internet that hockey pucks work well for this
Dad always said "If it has boobs or spark plugs it will be fun AND will cause you problems."
