1986 Jeep CJ7 Drivetrain Repair & Service

All About 1986 Jeep CJ7 Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your CJ7's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Jeep, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your CJ7 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 1986 Jeep CJ7 to maintain its performance power. Follow Jeep's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
