Before you get down...I just sold a pair for $750 out of my sport. Granted mine had 3.73’s and a factory posi (or whatever it’s called), but they still sold. Here’s what they’re good for - CJ’s, XJ’s, ZJ’s
Details for fuel when people come over::
The guys who have earlier year XJ’s. They came with what’s called a Dana 30 CAD (Center Axle Disconnect). It might just be the worst axle ever put in the front of a jeep. It has a vacuum actuated shift fork to put it into 4x4. The long side tube is two piece and not very strong. Later year XJs still didn’t have ideal axles because they have smaller u joints in their axles. Unit bearings (hubs) cause the driveshaft to always spin even when not in 4x4. This puts a lot of miles on that shaft. The latest XJ’s were low pinion...big said. A JK 30 is dramatically better than all 3 especially if you truss it.
For the rear the XJ’s had 35’s or the Chrysler 8.25 both of which were turds. Some had C-clip axles. All had smaller axle tubes and weak 27-spline axle shafts. The JK 44 is a dramatic improvement in all regards.
Not to bore everyone...most Jeep ZJ’s has shit axles too. Rear was either a 35 or an aluminum centered 44. Fronts were 30’s.
You’re looking for a specific buyer though. You have to be patient, price then right and work the price down. If you don’t have 3.73’s (most have 3.42’s I think) you may not get as much but I’d still expect you could get $500 for the pair if you sell them loaded.
I was wondering: some Wrangler JK online retailers say "with air conditioning".
Does it mean that there are two different serpentine belts? Will that one work if a Wrangler JK doesn't have A/C?
It's a bit confusing.
Engine light came on. It started to idle rough. I got code P0301. Took it to stealership since it is under the powertrain warranty and they told me it is not covered. Does anyone have any advice on where to learn on how to change fuel injectors?
Thanks in advance!

I have a 2014 automatic unlimited rubicon with a teraflex 3" full 8 flexarm lift kit, 35" tires and I am going to install Yukon 4.88 R&P.
Should I install a transmission cooler. I have been reading some threads regarding an over heating problem. And if so, any recommendations?
I recently killed my JK and need to replace the motor. I was on Vacation while it happened and so now i can't seem to figure out the best way to move it 3000 miles. Going from TN to Montana. Worst case scenario is i rent a 16ft moving truck from penske or budget, rent a car hauler and tow it to...
