Bedlined the front diff cover and then put my purple touch to it like I did on the rear cover

The diff cover itself is bedlined.. and the purple paint is just Tremclad rattle can "Grape" along with a few coats of clear

This is the same way I did my rear diff, and it's holding up well

Picked up a spare 33" Goodyear MTR with a rim to go with it (not my choice in rim, but it was free) Also scored some free longer shocks that I think will make work for the rear once I get my BPE's.

glad i found this. youre running smaller tires than i am and i only have a BB. my plans are to bump up to 4.5 and keep my same tires as they are brand new. doesn't look too terribly goofy on yours which is reassuring. you know what youre doing with the build, good work

edit: are you still on stock control arms?
