It looks like the pickle fork couldn't be saved, either. Were you trying to pry with it?Removing the drag link end at the pitman arm gave me some trouble and took way longer than intended. Thankfully a bigger hammer and a pickle fork rental tool from advance auto got it off. Sadly... the drag link wasn't able to be saved :P
I think at one point we did, but we mostly hit it at the end. It was a cheap harbor freight pickle fork, definitely didn't feel as solid compared to the ones i rented from advance autoIt looks like the pickle fork couldn't be saved, either. Were you trying to pry with it?
“But, but, you don’t need to re gear a Rubicon.” It does make a big difference. Drives much better, tranny works like it is supposed to, and MPG’s actually go up.This past week marked my first year of ownership of the JLUR. Went and got it regeared to 4.88s. Picked it up yesterday and definitely noticed the difference. Consistently maintained 8th gear on my drive home. Really happy with the regear, can't wait to be out of the 500 mile break in period, to see how it really performs.
