Only reason I took mine out in favor of the spool was because of the unexpected lane changes, and also that fact that I felt 37s where a bit much for the locker...... I never once heard mine........maybe it's that v8 POWER hahaha, I don't think one would work great in he jeep seeing on how he rolls on 33s!

Got a good amount if work done today.

Moved it in to the garage by myself! this has to weigh about 200 pounds.


.


Cracked the diff open again to get a better look at the gears.



4.10



now time for the attack!



Got rid of all the brake lines, sway bar, calipers, and rotors. still have one on though. Its seized up on the shaft pretty good.


.


Then I attacked it with the grinder, cutting wheel, and wire wheel.

Perches cut off.


.


Then cleaned.


.


I still have a lot more grinding to do though. After I get everything ground down I'll hit it with the flap disc to get it looking really good.

Those Exploder 8.8s weigh 174lbs each but you can add a bunch extra before rust removal.

Nice find, nice price. Good luck with it!

Got a few things done right after work.



Pulled the shafts. Thanks for the info. Zac!

31 spline :-)



Also, got the caliper brackets off. Thank God for impacts! I was going to buy new dust shields until I found out they are only sold with the caliper mount and are like 75$ a piece. From the looks of things its only the outer lip that is damaged and rotted on both shield so I'll just cut it off.



And she's naked



I'll finish cleaning it up this afternoon when I wake up. Life of a third shifter!! :-)
