Spray them with HCL and lightly agitate. Hit with pressure washer.

After ridein music road the other night I noticed I was leaking a lil bit of rear diff oil so today I took it all apart and this is what I saw everything in here looks brand new I mean brand new. So i went to advanced to get the gasket got one it looked right but was about a .5 in to small so i went back to see if maybe they gave me the wrong one. Nope its the right one but doesn't fit. So some RVT later and its back on. Anyone else had this problem? And i guess like alot of other things on this jeep the rear end has been fixed also just like the engine gaskets and bolts not been tight and **** just looking brand new on a 15 year old truck. I don't get it was it a big piece or did someone actually take care of general maintenance. I'm hopeing for the latter. See pics

Sounds like you went to Advance and told them you have a Dana 44. The Dana 44 in a ZJ is NOT the standard iron Dana 44. As such, there is no store-bought gasket that I've ever found. Remember, we have an aluminum D44.

You did the right thing by just getting some RTV and sealing it up yourself. I actually prefer using Permatex Right Stuff. It sets faster, and you can fill immediately after bolting the cover back up. Set time for that product is 10 minutes, fully dry in 24 hours or less.

There's no gasket for a D44A. You have to use silicone. Silicone holds up much better too. I used a gasket on my D30 and it's already wet around the seal. The D44A was done at the same time and it's still holding up perfectly. You may have overdone it with the silicone though. A small, 1/8" bead will do. You're going to have fun if you decide to change that again in the future sometime.

The best gasket for the D30 is the LubeLocker - I quit using RTV on my front diff over 3 years ago. Great product.

We don't have one for the D44a though

Good puller if replacing the factory fan, pusher if adding to the factory one. Pullers work better, most good fans do both when wired differently.

I pmed you kirby but ill post it up here anyway for anyone else interested. The fan out of a volvo s 70 or the likes work too going by this video i found

http://youtu.be/-954_wpRWsQ

Also a fan from a contour/merc cougar works as well like the Taurus but much cheaper.

I needed a little mess-around project for the weekend. Something cheap but cool. So I finally de-chromed my grill and put in the wire mesh gutter guard in lieu of the laredo black plastic slats. I painted the mesh deep metallic blue and the grill itself is the rustoleum bumper and trim paint. I didn't use a primer on the grill, as I didn't need it when I used the same paint on my cladding. However, I feel like this stuff is gonna flake off. I scuffed the hell out of all the surfaces, but it just feels soft. Time will tell I suppose. The mesh is held on with gorilla glue. I tried JB weld at first, but it was too difficult. I like how it turned out though. Looks mean in my opinion.

After
