OK, i was about to venting but i kind of try to calm..and tried to fight with 4x4 shop cuz they didnt listen to me at first place that i want them to drill the pumpkin for ARB line on top of RE bracket, and they forget and end up drill hole-> FRONT DIFF COVER :boiling: !!!!

SO i decieded to take my HP44 home otherwise 4x4 shop will make it worse!

SO i will do the drill for new hole, how about i drill 1-2" hole of RE bracket bridge to clearence the ARB line then drill 1/4" (is that correct, ARB line 1/4" to drill the pumpkin?) into the pumpkin ? hows that sound?

I will cover ARB locker with plastic or clothes and have HP44 diff face downward so the metal sharp will falling onto the floor..

Heres the pix

As you can see what they did with my front cover diff :( !!

Thanks!

You didn't pay them I hope, I would have SERIOUS doubts about the rest of the installation (internally) after seeing that mess.

And, if you did pay them, are you gonna ruin any warranty on the internal work they did if you reroute the line yourself?? Cuz you may need it.

I would find another shop to check out what they did.

Sorry I can't answer your other Q's intelligently, I have no experience w/ ARB's.

I know that they are top notch with gears and every lockers even ARB for monster truck but not the rockcrawling...

They installed my OXs and it works flawless and awesome..

My guess that they dont use their common sense!

Yes i only paid $150 after they accepted to reduced the price on installation job. no they wont viod it if i plug it into the different route.

Thanks!

Jake,

What a mess!! :roll: :tdown: Since they are probably not that good of a shop (speculating here which is not good), they must have follow the instructions very well on the Ox install. That is probably why you are not having any problems. Sometimes the guys that think that know it all will not read the install notes as they are "pros".

After seeing this I would have just taken my TJ and walked out out there. With regards to the cover I would not rtv it. Take the cover off and weld the hole, make sure it's done right. Follow the instructions in your arb manual for drilling the hole on the diff. I personally would not drill that big of a hole for the arb line to clear your mount. I think I have some pics of my truss on my personal website that you can see.

Please keep us posted on how it goes and post a pick of your final fix. Btw, can you take a pic of your bracket without the red or any obstruction so we can see better?

Jake,

Forgot, you don't want to bring your line out through that bracket. The arb hole will be on top of the diff which will have a fitting. You then install your blue or stainless steel line to it, bringing it through and up the truss. See if you can hunt my pick down, if not let me know.

Jake,

I found a pic of my front pig that might help you see which way the ARB line was installed. Don't remember if I had this one on my web site or not.

I had taken the truss off so you will not see it in the pic. However the line goes up & through a small hole of the truss itself.

Lookee much better!!!

I'd find a rubber bushing to go inside the hole in the bracket and around the air line (a cork with a hole drilled in it) so that air line (even with the spring protector) won't chaff on the bracket, if it was me. Cheap insurance............

I'm with Brad on the rubber bushing. I don't have one on mine since I have the stainless steel cable instead of the blue line. I still keep an eye out on it (monkey on my back), after 5 years it's been doing good with no signs of wear.

I disagree with Brad on one thing... it does not just look better, it looks 150% better! :amazed:

Did you weld the hole on the cover or did you just get a new one?
