replaced lube in rear axle to fix a leak. I think I got it sealed much better this time. Painted the diff cover, now it doesn't match the rest of the axle.

If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.

Do you have any lift on that? I want bigger tires but not caring for a high lift at the moment.

slapped on my lift and tires yesterday. Today put on my other front fenders (couldn't see cutting up another pair). I swapped the power antenna for the manual one. I folded the pinch seams and such. Then lastly went and got a cheepo muffler to replace my leaky rusty one. It has a nice deep rumble to it but Doesn't break your ear drums in the upper rpm's

2 1/2" of lift from the coils. I'll throw in some 1-1 1/2" spacers after I get the ARB installed to level it out at 3 1/2 inches.

trying to put a stock-ish ZJ places it does not belong.

believe the chain snapped during a session of hard wheel hop. wheels hopped, heard a pop. though nothing of it really as all wheels still pulled. backed off the hill to try another one, got a more consistent popping. got out, checked, no leak or anything, continued up the thiil. got to anothe rhill, about halfway up heard a loud pop and forward movement halted. put it in park, and th ejeep still moved. got out to find that.

still moved in High range though, but made some pretty terrible noises.
