Thats what the break peddle is for. Your not going to be flooring it from a stop you just rolling it to it. There Isn't any torque on it like this unless our being foolish. And we use the alignment rack which is the same thing as safety jacks. Because you need the suspention loaded. To mimic driving on the road. If your squeamish face the truck towards the street, jack it up, and drive it to 40 or so b4 getting under it at 15mph. To get a feal for how it reacts on stands. You can also shake and rock the living s**t out of It motor off to see if its tipsy. I assure you its not.

I am leaning towards this...

So I can pull the front drive shaft as long as I keep it in 4 wheel low, right? Don't need to go very fast to see if it is still making the noise...just would need the center diff lock switch if I was going to keep the driveshaft off...right?

Right. If you don't have a CDL switch, putting it in Low will engage it.

For testing purposes, straight line, yeah shifting into low would work...

5 mins of work and you could use the hazard switch as your CDL switch (I think you need to do some trimming though) or the other route is to shift into low range to lock the center diff, pull the fuse, and then shift back into high. I think I would do this and avoid any potential for more noise being introduced by the center diff being in low.

which fuse?

5 minute fixes are very rarely 5 minutes for me.

You should also be able to just use the hazard switch, if you want to stay in high range. I know many have opted to get a second hazard switch for their CDL, since they're cheaper than a CDL switch.


edit: dang, you guys are quick!!! beaten by Corsair..

Me either - Call it a 30 min swap

As for the fuse, looks like it is the big 30a fuse, #14 in the panel by your left knee

FZJ80 Fuse Chart - This is a chart for a '94 but should be similar/same I'm thinking
