Of course I now do have a large empty beer shaped hole in the shop fridge... I'm not sayin', I'm just sayin'...

Good news! Jeep is fixed!

I think the main problem was the mud that was in the diff, although I did get the pinion tightened up a little.

I also replaced the pinion seal while I was at it.


taking the pinion seal out was a pita!


I think it's reusable


.


Seal in


.


Diff cleaned out



Dirty but fixed!

Great! Think I've had it since November and im going to say I've used it at least 50 times so far. The only minor problem is the roller thing up front is worn out pretty bad and needs to be replaced.

Your best bet with those harbor freight winches is to put synthetic line in. They dont leave enough room on the roller for all that cable unless it winds up perfectly.

That's the only problem with mine, to much cable. If it doesn't spool in just right it will bind against the winch plate. Question is: is it worth it to put $200 synthetic on a $300 winch(free in my case)????

Why not chop the rears like mine? I took a good 4" out of the rear wheel wells and trimmed up the brace. Time to get out the jig saw!

That's exactly what I was thinking. When I saw the rub the first thing I thought of was your Jeep! Lol

X3 on a bit more cutting. I have to trim another maybe 1" out of mine. After the 1" stretch I did I'm rubbing a bit at full stuff.

Dude your jeep is so so sick.

Cheers
