How do, I have two used Fab Fours d 44 diff covers. They are used but in great shape. They are $175 for the pair or $100 each plus shipping if needed, or local pick up works for me too.
I also have the stock steering gear box, res, pump and hose's all of which are used and might have 50k miles of use. The hoses have less than 10k on them. I will take offers on the steering stuff.
Shoot me a pm or email too gstephens1@verizon.net

I am getting 15.7 mpg's around town so that's good as well even while running high test fuel.


Kinda what I was thinking. Technically 4.88's and 37's are a dead on combo (for a Rubicon i.e. 37/31x4.11=4.91) but I am going to wait until I upgrade suspension, stretch and put 60's under her.. then she will see lower gearing.

Rig is looking great btw!

OK ordered the artec inner c kit now its going to be time to order ball joints. I figured I should just do them while installing the artec stuff. What are the opinions on the best ball joints?

Since adding those I have also replaced broken rear axles





Recently I noticed the stock steering shafts were toast so now I have the boregson shafts. They are really nice.
