Re: Iconic's Partial To Blue Build

It did happen to me, but I was also throwing codes. And turns out it was the front actuator, not the switch. But I kept the manual switch on my dash for 4wd anyhow. In your case Id be suspicious of wiring and sensors, not actuator.

Re: Iconic's Partial To Blue Build

Have you set your alignment yet? I don't really rub too often. Although i know our track width is several inches off, my contact is really only at the top and back fender well on high speed compression. But it looks like you kept your dust shields. So that may limit some things.

Eventually if I don't have someone do it for me, I'll probably cut/ tub my fenders myself a few inches higher. Maybe something to consider in the future.

Another issue with my FJ. Driver side LCA alignment is seized. Passenger side has a little more room because the shop was able to get positive caster out of it.

Re: Iconic's Partial To Blue Build

I jumpered the 3 switches on the T-case and still could not achieve 4wd. I tested to see if I have voltage coming in thru the actuator plug and a few pins have 12 volts going to the actuator. I'll loosen the front diff and pull the actuator out tomorrow after draining the fluid. I've reached 500 miles break in, except maybe the front diff since I was never actually in 4WD.

Mason swapped the actuator over while I welded on the motor mount gusset during the front diff regear. We'll see if he sabotaged me since I think its possible to install it off the sliding collar.

Its like one step forward and two steps back.

Re: Iconic's Partial To Blue Build

Seems like a lot to go through for an extra inch(of clearance). May be worth it to some ladies I've been pondering some of these challenges moving forward with mine. Those LCA cam bolts can be a bear too. I replaced all of mine last year but I probably do about 2 dozen sets per year. Not the funnest job but they pay good.

Re: Iconic's Partial To Blue Build

Alright I feel stupid. The solution to my lack of 4WD is simple. We forgot to swap over the front diff stub shaft when I regeared. ECGS is sending me one for free. Lets see if I can install it without completely pulling the front diff out again.

I just changed the oil in my rear diff. My FJ with 37's and 4.88's pulls harder than it did on stock gears and 34's (as I might expect). I would say I've put it back close to factory, or 33" tire range of acceleration under WOT. Not bad at all.

Yep, it is. I wasn't planning on 37's until I heard Marlin RCLT was rumored. That was a little over a year ago. So yeah, its a big step. I know 35's have gotten alot of people alot of places. But 35's are the minimum for me and what I want to do, that's what I should have got instead of 34's.
