    I bought what I think is a good deal on a LJ, with 6 cylinder, automatic, super clean body and interior. Has a soft top. Drives nice. Came with 33 x 12.5 x 15's. I added the alloy ion wheels. Now I will probably let the 92 yj go.

    I think it has Dana 44's and limited slip in rear.

    Any info or comments are appreciated.

    ShawnCT450R, thank you. Have around 3500 additional miles on it now. With no major problems. After 600 miles, I the transfer case or rearend or both were going out. Turned out the front and rear U-joints of rear drive shaft were shot. Looked like they may have been the originals. I can't complaign at 140k. Now has greasable Spicers.

    Glad you found the issue Swamp! Sounds like an inexpensive repair. I'll be inspecting those on mine as well. I've never swapped a u-joint. How long did the replacement take you?

    Did a little research on this last night. Quality u-joint parts are inexpensive and also cheap insurance. If I see anything not right, they're all getting replaced. Also, a friend of mine who wheels his Ruby pretty regularly said that he carries spare. Probably good advise if I start wheeling it alot.
