You would need a 84-91 waggy axle for the correct width (63") and a drivers side drop. I did see a Rubicon D44 on craigslist but they never responded to my emails.

This is a good write up for the correct wiring and install of an electric fan. The ARB type of switches are available thru NAPA part# RS1098 and Fleetpride also sells Cole Hersee if you want the fancy ARB style that has a fan printed on the switch. The one thing that I noticed that was unclear was the reason for the diode. The diode suppresses the high transient voltages produced when the magnetic field of a coil collapses. The voltage produced when this "field" collapses is about the cube of the input, (its a little more indepth than a cube of the input but you get the idea) and the current is in the reverse direction. If this voltage was able to reach the PCM it would kill it so diodes are installed to clamp or freewheel this voltage within the switched devices and protect the PCM. Hopefully this is easy to understand and better explains why this diode is a must in computer controlled vehicles.

Tried the suggestions none worked the wife is just too logical.

The key words are mixture and finesse but you could also use "Everything" & "Get the nose thru and the rest will follow". You rarely see old iron out on the trail unless its a CJ and it would be a nice addition.

How do you guys get your wife to agree on this stuff??

No real mud holes just lots of slipping clutch cause of gearing issue. Brent lost a lifter or something of the nature and Mark put it on its side. Otherwise it was a great time and I was impressed with what my jeep would go through. I need to install gears, front locker and a trail cage soon.

I didn't screw myself too bad. I made it back OK I gave up early when I noticed my clutch starting to fail so thats when I decided to head home. Still made it all the way back to NY just fine but that smell of clutch is still in the air.

Cause and effect is a good thing when it comes to R&D just as long as it doesn't leave you stranded!

I am now planing to leave Friday around 4pm bringing Alex along and camping out. The Jeep will make it fine its never let me down and I don't think it ever will!

If you use SMAW you need a high nickle rod or a rod used for stainless. Eutectic has a rod just for this it is #609 and comes in various sizes but is quite expensive I have some but its 3/16th and thats way too big for what you want to do. I do have some really small (I think its 3/32") Stainweld 316-7 that I could give you. Any of the Lincoln Stainweld series should work. If you head down to HAUN on Court St they can set you up with what you need. If you want to use your MIG then you need a stainless wire, another liner and shielding gas HAUN should be able to set you up with that also it will just take the $$$$$ if you don't already have a tank. The best way to do it would be TIG, very low heat effected zone, easily weld dissimular metals and if your good at it small stuff is easy. Any welding shop should be able to do it for you including HAUN.

Brent, What time are you leaving Sat morning? I am up in the air on leaving Friday night after 4pm or just going Sat morn. I could meet up with you guys at Rt81 either at rt20 in Laffeyette (I don't know if this is correct spelling)or in Homer. If I leave Sat morning, I was thinking of leaving around 4:30am that should get me there around 7 or 7:30. LMK
