Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

When I engage the 4 wheel drive the jeep would jerk really bad when I turned in any direction. Also It would not disengage the 4 wheel drive after the lever was pulled back to 2 wheel. Not to mention the vibration in the wheels on any speed over 30 Mph.

If you have this problem and want to do it yourself. Don't. A 2 hour job took me just over 12 Hours. If you do, just take the u-joints out and have a shop press them out and back in for you. It's not that expensive (which I found out after the fact).
