New to Forum

I just wanted to introduce myself. I look forward to spending some time over here. I've been posting on the Bronco forum for awhile. I just got a '97 TJ with 69,600 miles. It's in excellent condition and I picked it up for $9595.00. I'm not going to go too far with mods but I'll probably do the K+N and cat back thing to help it breath a little better. I'm not sure if it has a 44 or 30 rearend. Is there a quick visual check?

Hello, and welcome to the board.
That is a nice looking Jeep, I like the doors. Halfs are where its at. And those are really nice wheels too. You will be very happy with your new jeep I am sure

You're choices on the rear end are 44 and 35 . The easiest way to check - look and the check/fill plug - If it's rubber it's a 35, if it's metal - it's a 44.

You are going to love the TJ - I know I love mine - let me know how the K&N and cat back work out - I'm debating doing the same to mine.

Here's a link to ID your axles.

Re: New to Forum

Thanks for the axle ID <font color="blue">Dirt Dog </font color> . Unfortunately I've got the 35 [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]. Oh well, this isn't going to be a serious off-roader any way. I'll stick with the 31's and 2" spacers. What type of locker would be good for a DD with weekend off-road trips on sugar sand and mud trails?

A powertrax, "lunch box" locker would be a pretty inexpensive, install yourself, locker.
