Re: I'm ba-aaaaaaack!

Nice ZJ! Reminiscent of my old one... Didnt have 1tons, becuase I never got to build a cage- figured 37-40" tires would ve silly with out a cage. Hell, wouldve liked a cage with 35s labd lockers.

Love that V8 rumble tho... I had thorley headers to flowmaster and it was sexxxxy! Didnt have emissions in NM though.

Exhuast prices have def gone up here in CO... All the jys cut the cats off making it harder to find.

Cant wait to see this BEAST in its natural habitat! Really liked the all 4 corners coiled over leafs in the back of the XJ as far as flex- the v8 in 4low was just a good time too lol

Re: I'm ba-aaaaaaack!

D60 front question.....

Noticed that the right front hub is loose on the housing. All 6 hub Allen screws are tight but I can grab the hub housing and it seems to float and can be moved up/down/side to side.

Is this normal? The left hub does this too but barely.

Does this have to do with the hub nuts inside?

Re: I'm ba-aaaaaaack!

The hub lock, or the hub itself?

Re: I'm ba-aaaaaaack!

Warn hublocks? Sounds like it might not be indexed correctly? Usually they're pretty tight to hub. There's an o ring on there to seal out water and dirt so really it should be snug.

You mean the lockout?

Mine aren't on there tight (since that makes turning the lockout next to impossible), but mine definitely don't move at all.

Re: I'm ba-aaaaaaack!

The warn hubs. Whatever those 6 allen head screws go into is loose I'm guessing.

Is that because the hub nuts are needing tightened?

Re: I'm ba-aaaaaaack!

Finally found a vid on youtube. It's for a Chevy D60 but I'm guessing the hubs are very similar.

I answered my question about the hub nuts.... the driving hub (that the hub lock mounts to with the 6 screws) is ahead of the hub nuts and held in by snap rings, one on the shaft, one around the inside of the wheel hub. So, I'm guessing its a snap ring issue of some sort.



These are brand new locking hubs, installed by a shop in Estes Park shortly before I purchased it.

Ha..... Used to have an OEM shop manual grade knowledge of most XJ/MJ stuff but playing with the made to fit, fabricated stuff has always been a learning venture. Never had a D60 before and only once did I have to repair the D44 front hubs on Truggy.

This knowledge stuff is perishable if you don't stay immersed in it.....

Re: I'm ba-aaaaaaack!

Still got it ( I know, shocking....lol) and just sitting on it hoping that maybe I'll get back into it when I retire..... whenever that may be. Hoping sooner than later.

Got better wheels for it - still need mounted.
Got the cat converter installed - still need to take it for emissions
Needs a bit of tinkering but really, not far from trail ready.

But there's also not alot keeping me attached to it. I could bail on it if my vehicular A.D.D. spikes.....
