JL JOURNAL : Understanding the FAD – How the JL Front Axle Disconnect Works
In an effort to help improve fuel economy on the all new JL Wrangler, Jeep went through great lengths to lighten up it up as much as they could, reduce drag where possible and make it operate more efficiently. Of course, one of the things they did to help make this possible was to add a front axle disconnect or what most people refer to as, an FAD. But, what exactly is an FAD and how does it work? Is it tied into the JL computer and what if you were to upgrade your axle to something like a ProRock 44? Will getting rid of it be a problem? In this episode of the JL JOURNAL, Jim McGean, the owner of Dynatrac will answer all these questions and more. We hope you enjoy and find the information to be useful.
This is the 2nd in a series of JL JOURNAL’s that we’ve made to help educate people about JL Wrangler axles and why you might want to consider a Dynatrac ProRock 44. We hope that you’ll find them to be informative. Please check back soon for our next installment.
