Used Cherokee Rear End….What Now?!

I didn’t buy mine at the “pick-a-part” yard.

I bought mine at a big yard in Asheville where they pull the parts and have them stored outside in the elements for years.

Mine came with the emergency brake cables cut off short and the center brake line intact…..sort of.

I’d┬ápull the part myself with the idea that it might be nice to have the e-brake cables on the axle so I wouldn’t have to take mine off my old axle.

The guys at the big yard don’t treat the greasy parts with the nervous love that I’d pull them off the donor car with.

But….it’s cool that you can buy parts at a decent price and maybe get my Jeep back on the road soon.

Now I just need to tell them that I’m taking another day off this week.

Like….the one sunny day that falls the day after tomorrow.

Like a good day for wrestling with this heavy part out in the gravel.

I’m not a slave.

I should just tell them what my plans are.
