Default Axle actuator!

I guess that's what you call it, But I need a write up on replacing the front axle actuator,Or at least a step by step on how to replace. Looks easy enough but taking no chance. Kudo thanks in advance......

It's called a CAD or Central Axel Disconect. Nothing hard to it.
You might check into a 4x4 Posi Lock though. Does away with the vac part and works great, alot of guys with Jeeps thta have the CAD swap to the Posi lock.

edit: Just saw you are right up the road from me.

Yes same thing. If you use that then you can have 2wd low range.
Might give www.4wheelparts.com a shot or call the guys at the Nashville store.

I'm in Hermitage.

thanks Rem exactly what I was looking for just wasn't using the correct words in the search. Blu If you haven't yet you need to go play on the rock coarse at Tennessee Offroad, it's a blast.
