Not much progress to report on the axle builds as this time of the year I spend a lot of time in the woods 17 ft up in a tree. I do plan on working on the front axle tomorrow once I get out of the woods.

A little update. I did an overhaul on the front axle. New seals & bearings, swapped out the 3.07 gears for 4.56s, and installed a Lock Right in the differential.

The 8.8 is all done, new bearings and seals, tightened up the posi, and swapped out the 373 gears for 456 to match the front.

   

One thick ring gear

Good question. I should do that to the limited slip in my pathy before I get back on the trails again.

RE: my Tj work in progress
I'm guessing he added shims like we talked about doing. All I can say is Matt is a great guy for working on both my axles for me, cant wait to finish the jeep hopefully by the end of this month. Things left to do is install both axles, build a track bar, mount new tires, outboard rear shocks and hopefully build a new steering set up, but i can use the stock steering for now if i have to.

Different shims in the clutch pack, puts more pressure on the side gears. It will still slip, just not as much.
