    Great trip, shit tons of rain this week created a concrete slurry kind of condition to creep through.

    Backing into the driveway, my trailer was hit by a passing car.....

    No person was injured, but seriously. Wtf

    Trailer has a bent axle and a bad tire now, but outside of that, everything is ok.

    Jeep started losing a fair amount of transmission fluid out of the tailshaft seal after this last trip. I need to drop the transfer case to replace the seal, and since it is out, I will likely be swapping over to a junkyard 242 transfer case. Stock in mine is a 249, which has 4high and 4low only. It would be nice to have 2 high for the sake of low speed maneuverability. 3 point turning sucks in the woods most times.

    Seems it is a direct swap from one to the other, as I have a 242 out of a '98 Cherokee to work with.

    I'll post photos up of the trailer work, and the jeep work after Saturday.

    Orrrrr. I won't. Because I didn't take any photos.

    I'll dig around and get back, along with my story about how the jeep wouldn't start to be put on to the trailer this past weekend, preventing me from going to my favorite place.

    :X

    Noting your post on Facebook, did you get to the bottom of the cutting out and rough running?

    Crankshaft position sensor was the culprit.

    If I had a scanner the day it started acting up, I could have made it to the event. However, things around the house needed to be done which I had been putting off.

    I'm happy and the jeep is happy for now. On to the next trip.
