Who can recommend a 4X4 driveline shop in South Dade to check out a possible front drive-line vibration issue?
I need to rule out the TC going bad and I've hear from several Jeep sources my recent front diff overhaul could have resulted in an out of balance or improper installation issue.
Roco's said they could check it out, but it's not exactly a S. Dade Location and I have no experience with them.
I need to verify the problem before spending Big $$$$ working on the TC unless I really have to.

Agreed. I just ordered some things from them on Wednesday and they were able to get them for me by yesterday...fast service.

Depending on the nature of your issue, you might want to also check w/ Rey @ Florida Powertrain. They are in the same area and where Roco has their drivetrain work done.

Looks like Front Driveshaft replacement may be in order..apparently the "Rezeppa" joints in the WJ's don't take to be lifted much at all.

Bit first...the damn ABS light came on..and the error code signifies a ABS Pump failure.

Oouch! Damn expensive. Guess the driveshaft vibes in 4X4 will have to wait.

Florida Driveline found the CV/Rezeppa was flopping around and very loose....and believes that's the problem.
They are building a new front driveshaft with a double cardone joint and replacing the CV Flange with a yoke out of the TC.
Hopes that fixes the problem. I understand the Rezeppa CV is not easily rebuilt and not maintainable. Sunds like another design decision from Chrysler for an expensive throw-away part that can't be easily maintained and may not be cost-effective to rebuild.

Florida Powertrain and Hydraulics near MIA did a great job building a new, double Cardan Shaft.

Not cheap, but worked the first time out.

And they never threw me out even after about 500 dumb questions.
Finding a 1310, 32 spline replacement TC Yoke was a pain, and it had to be machined to get the correct counter bore for my TC shaft. But it took care of my drive vibes and I now have a maintainable front driveshaft without a disposable CV/Rezeppa.
Highly recommended.
