DIY Quick Disconnect Pins This mod is not my idea. I'll gladly admit I ripped it off another post on the interwebs. But I figured I'd snap some process photos and post the results here. And thanks Kizer for keeping a lid on this until I finally got it installed.
These were made for a friend of mine who's just getting into offroading (and modifying his Jeep).
We all know how helpful a quick disconnect link can be for unhooking the front swaybar. And we all know all the good aftermarket discos available. But their prices are not cheap at $80-140. For someone just getting started or on a smaller lift it's possible to make a quick disconnect pin for a fraction of the cost and simply use the factory swaybar links.
After a lot of thought, internet reading and talking to a few guys I bought one back in Late Feb. I LOVE IT! I use a large plasma cutter at work that will cut up to 1.5" and it makes fabrication and repair work so much easier. It cuts clean so there is very little prep before welding, way less heat than a oxy/act torch. At home I use mine here and there, I really haven't done any major fab projects since getting it. But its great for little things that would take half hour or more to drag out cutting wheels or saws to cut, takes less than ten minutes to charge up air compressor and cut with pencil thin lines.
I did by a pack of extra consumables for it at time of purchase, and have it mounted on the same cart as my welder. Also I made a 25' extension cord so I can use plasma in the driveway or other places. Then I tapped into our kitchen stove breaker and added a 220v outlet in the garage. They are a hefty cash investment I think I paid $600 on sale, but thats ha...

Been real busy with real-estate selling 2 houses and buying one plus moving from Medford to Shady Cove Oregon. I still have my XJ and love it more all the time. We finally got out to do some exploring around our new home last week end and still have lots to see. Finally got mine all oil leak free last fall with new main seals and gaskets top and bottom plus redid the o rings on the filter adapter. I will check in now and again now that things are finally settling down. We are right on the Rogue River so getting ready for spring Salmon season. I can't wait to get my new Willie drift boat wet.
I got a phone call and look what followed me home. I hung up on him laughing at first, I did tell him to call me when I bought the Overland, if he got a reasonably priced LJ Rubicon in as that would be my "last" Jeep. Then two days later after some haggling...
I have an Ax5 transmission. I have been getting a kind of grinding/or rubbing noise whenever I am in gear and the clutch is out. I was told by a transmission that it was chain slap from the transfer case so I pulled it yesterday to rebuild it. While there was some slack in the chain, I do not think that was the problem. I noticed that the sound would still occur if the transfer case was in neutral. Well I found out today that the chain does not move when the transfer case is in neutral. After doing alot of research I found out that the input bearing on the transmission is the normal cause of this noise. does anyone have any experience replacing this bearing and seal? I dont really want to pull this apart again.
