Figured I'd update this a little. Well my transmission decided to quit on me and I was forced to park it. Turned out my throw out bearing had broken. The metal portion of it snapped and the bearing itself didn't spin freely. As my transmission had numerous other issues I went and picked up a newer nv3550, the 4:1 tcase, rear driveshaft and gas tank skid from a 2004 rubicon.

Also while I had the jeep parked I put a stubby bumper on that rob gave to me.

Just about everything important was plug and play. The 4wd dash light doesn't plug in but that's not really an issue. Reverse light also doesn't quite work right (still working on that.) the speedo gear plugged right in and all the shift linkage works fine. Also had to swap the front output yoke on the tcase for a 1310 ujoint style yoke so I could keep my driveshaft. The rear is a flange style so I'll need to get a driveshaft made eventually but for now the rubi shaft works however it's got all sorts of weird adapter ujoints in it.
With the help of rob and my dad we got the old out and the newer in! The tcase skid drop had to stay in as the nv241or is quite a lot larger than the nv231. May have to look into doing a 1" body lift to allow me to raise everything back up.

Transmission shifts much smoother but has the same issue with 2nd gear when it's cold. Tcase is crazy slow. 4low idling in 1st gear and slamming the brakes won't stop it....
I guess brakes are the next upgrade haha.

Now I just need a dana 44 front axle and lockers then I'll have a rubiclone!

Also the rear axle seals are leaking. 4wheel parts were the last people to touch that so they said they might warranty it if it is an installation issue. They said they'd have to tear it apart to determine whether it is. The only seals they can get are crown auto and everything I've got from crown auto has fallen apart very quickly. Not really sure what to here. Seeing as how the seals/bearings are pressed on I can't do it myself. Should I take the risk and see if they'll warranty their work but get possibly pooey seals or go somewhere else and get a different brand seal but not have the chance that it'll be covered?

They did my gears last June. So the axle seals and bearings should have been replaced with the install.

I thought it was an axle overhaul kit they used. I'll have to check the receipt when I get home.
