  1. The stock driveshaft on 2WD MJs has an encased rubber sheath around the inner shaft that supposedly helps prevent vibrations. It looks like the rubber sheath inside has deteriorated and the outer shell has shifted. I've never seen this shift before. I'd take it to a local driveshaft shop and try to have it balanced. When I tried to have my original shaft balanced the shop guy said the rubber was AFU inside and he couldn't balance it. I think you have a similar problem. I ended up having a new driveshaft made.

    This. My 2WD driveshaft did the same thing.

     

     

    I was worried it was the shaft. guess I need to find a shop.

     

    Thanks for the help everyone :thumbsup:

  2. I have a '87 4.0 auto 2wd. It hasn't really been out of town for several months, and on the last road trip, aside from the cruise, it was fine.

     It now has a vibration above 60mph.

    Naturally, I checked the u-joints.... they were fine, however the slip yolk moved a lot. Also, when I wiggled it there was a slight metallic clunk from the driveshaft.

    then I noticed this....

     

     

    ( I noticed this after loosening the bolts :yes: )

    While I did paint across the yolks, I did not put the arrow there.

    It kind of looks like the driveshaft is maybe starting to separate, to me.

     

    Has anyone had or noticed anything like this?

    At first I was thinking just a new slip yolk, but now .... :dunno:

  3. What  did you get that washer bottle from?- that was a great idea!

    Its just a factory 97-01 XJ washer bottle. There's some write ups on swapping it. The only thing you really need to do is to drill a hole in the inner fender for the fill neck, and lengthen some wires and hoses. 

     

    Thanks!  You do some nice work :thumbsup:

    I appreciate all your pics

    I'll be able to get into altering my front axle as soon as I get into my shop, hopefully just a few weeks. :banana:

  4. was driving my 95 xj from MI to KS. noticed noise from steering pump when I pulled in for gas. fluid was fine, so kept going. an HR or so later, some oil started spraying up from the corner of the hood. when I popped the hood I found the steering pump shelled out

     

    * took pic after I pulled line off.

     

    I have a semi. I had been hit by some crazy chick, so while waiting for the insurance $$, I had an old tire on it. it blew @ 73 mph. it opened the hood , blocking my vision, when it blew I was in the right lane & it pulled me to the left shoulder. thank God it was 1am and the road was empty. it completely ripped out the complete headlight bucket, wiring, even the angle iron brace across the bottom of the hood.

    a cop stopped while I was picking up the debris. he thought I ran over a car there was so much of it. 

     

  5. FWIW

    I went through DE inspection with a 90 MJ that had the egr blocked off. They had the hood up poking around. they clamped the vent line & pressurized the fuel tank. It failed.

    I had to pull the tank & run a new vent hose, but after that, it passed with flying colors....

     

    I didn't know it, but at the time my cat was burned out. when I pulled the exhaust only a few weeks later, I could literally see through it like it was pipe. the honeycomb was melted into a pile at the bottom. :dunno:
