Thread: I have learn't

    Default I have learn't

    Hello Club Members

    I found myself thinking tonight about all the quirky Jeep knowledge I have acquired over the last year. For instance,

    The centre of a dana 30 diff from a JK, can not be used in a TJ dana 30 because the diff centres rotate in opposite directions. We wanted to use the JK centre for an auto (lunchbox) locker in a TJ, because the auto lockers dont fit into the centre housing of a TJ limited slip dana 30. Turns out it cant be done.

    A ZJ pitman arm on a TJ prevents a crushed steering dampner

    Never buy cheap after market jeep sensors, you will just be wasting your time as they seldom work properly.

    Mud and a JK radiator are not a good combination, took the brother in law an hour with a hose to get enough mud out to drive home.

    Adjusting rear uper control arms is more about listening than seeing.

    Jeep handbreaks are not trustworthy. Dont trust them.

    A clock spring is easy to break and expensive to replace, who needs a horn anyway.

    And thats just after 1 year.

    What quirky Jeep knowledge has everyone else acquired?

    Tanya,
    Could i correct a few things from my quirky knowledge ?
    All front diff centres turn the same direction. I suspect you've gotten confused with the reference to reverse rotation - which is all front diffs. The difference in the gears is the JK is high pinion and the TJ low pinion so the gear is reverse cut.
    However the carrier/hemisphere are interchangeable. Likewise the lunchbox locker is interchangeable between tge 2 D30s.
    But neither D30 is LSD.
    Rear D44 is another whole duscussion.
    Careful interchanging pitman arms - very easy to upset the alignment between tge draglink and panhard which can result in bumpsteer.

    Thank you for your reply wooders, much appreciated.

    I am very much an amature with only 12 months worth of information from others. So thank you for contributing to my post and furthering my quirky Jeep knowledge.

    Any additional quirky TJ info you can share? I am always eager to learn.
