Look what ups brought me today! Looks like I will be installing these bad boys along with a rr axle seal! Do anyone have any pointers on how paint the riddler sign on the cover a different color without messing with my soon to be black finish?

Got the rear installed now to! I don't know much about the eaton e locker works but when I had the cover off I was trying to see why it's not working. When its on it turns to lock up and does for a quarter turn than it just lets go is there anything internal on those lockers that like to break? I guess it time to start saving up for a Detroit locker!

well I will have 100 bucks to throw at the jeep here real quick and need help decideing on what to get! I am looking at either getting hard-kor steering box brace from kevins (because I am running a drop pitman arm) http://www.kevinsoffroad.com/cart/in...roducts_id=462 or new fuel injectors http://www.precisionautoinjectors.co...1&categoryId=3. what would you do if you were decided between the two?

The brace doesn't do much to stiffen the unibody. It does tighten up steering a lot. Even on my stock suspension ZJ(the lift is finally on its way) it made a big difference, and I'd already had the steering gear replaced. So with a remanned steering gear, new swaybar bushings, and the steering brace, my steering was a lot more firm. You'll notice it right off, and whatever weak points you can make up for on these Jeeps are worth it. I'd definitely recommend the brace for a lifted vehicle. Especially one as massive as yours.
