    Yes you can. I’ve done this with every one of my ZJs that didn’t come with them. Usually base model 4-liters, the Limiteds and V8s always had the 249 cases and they put the CVs in to reduce bonding with the full time AWD

    I wrapped up putting the lift on finally and got my wheels and tires switched over from the Wrangler for the tahuya run this Saturday. Only have before pictures since I finished with a flashlight.IMG_20180730_194758.jpgIMG_20180730_194802.jpgIMG_20180730_203313.jpg I'll get some after pictures in the morning. Thing drives like a dream though.

    Also, can a mod change the name of this thread to "The build of Yeti"... I think that's what I'm going with for the Jeep's name.

    Did you swap t-cases by chance? The older 249s (93-95) have a creep issue with the VC inside, they’ll move feet overnight if parked on an incline when it goes bad.

    No I haven't swapped the case yet and probably wont for a while. Close to 300k miles and I park it on an incline every night

    You’re one of the lucky ones.

    Somewhere I’ve got a pile of spares for that 318 if you ever need stuff.

    Thanks a ton. Lord knows at some point I'll need it. It's been the most reliable highileage car Ive ever owned though. I just need to get the speedometer working right so those miles are counted

    Here's the after shots. I took it down the hill and everything seems fine. 2 inch lift and from 29 inch tires to 31's. No rubbing as far as I can tell.

    Also got some Wayalife stickers coming in, as well as a tire plug kit, and a roof rack so I can utilize what's there.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
