so its Rustoleum Semi Gloss Black on the axle itself, but what about the paint on the diff cover? That looks awesome on the black!

Same brand and type paint but the color is 'Cast Coat Iron'. When dry it's a little darker than the color of a brand new brake drum.

Been one of those kind of and kinda days. A few annoying things popped up. Last month I purchased a set of Raybestos Ceramic brake pads and when I pulled them out of the box they were wrong. The parts store I bought them from was out of the number I needed, Won't have anymore in till thursday afternoon at the earliest. While I'm not a big of the "Zone", I went by and picked up a set of their Ceramic based pads. Not too bad plus I had a $20 credit.



The NAPA TJ font brake lines I purchased 2 years ago XJ were 3"+ longer than stock so I purchased another set for the MJ. Pulled them out of the box today and they're the exact same length as the old MJs. I rolled under the XJ and the new NAPA lines are shorter than the old NAPA lines. After that I pretty much called today a wash and had a beer. I did find a deal online for some SS brake lines. PORC had front and rear for $87 shipped to my door by Friday. BTW an extra to the guys at PORC who took my order 2 minutes before they closed.

Did manage to get my hubs and backing plates installed:

Oh just wait till it sees some offroading. haha

I can't wait to see how the rear looks if you are doing the front this clean!

You have inspired my to clean up my undercarriage, but that won't happen until I swap my rear. Keep up the good work.

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

Nice work on the MJ. Once I get to stripping it down and getting paint done, she'll hopefully be on par with your truck!

I sure wish I still had my MJ. It was my first vehicle when I was 16.

I am amazed at this build. You are giving my hopes of building the XJ up. Will this be purely an offroading beast or a dd or a hybrid?
