Definitely create the write-up for the regear. I am going to be regearing when I am done with some other things that I need to finish, so that would be quite helpful!

Would also give me the opportunity to paint the axles up with some Chassis Saver.
sure thing, hell I was just talking to you. ill get you some links after i study today

sure thing Rick Ross, ill see what I've got.


basically I took the license plate portion of the trunk off (just 4 nuts). then lined that with some matting. like so



then i removed the rear wiper motor and the locking mechanism for the glass and lined all around the area or the hatch




then i went up the sides just a little bit.



best part was I was able to find all the holes for the little wire anchors and put them back in.


it actually wasnt all that hard. just need some patience


if you want more pics lmk, i could go pop off my trunk trim (i havnt put all the screws back in yet)

Oh, I thought they had been that way before. Why not just buy the black pieces that came in some laredos? It would look factory that way

That would be what you're thinking of. I would love to replace my door panels with the 96+ style, they look so much better.
