Lol it's the front driveshaft cv head that inputs into the transfercase. And yea these IFS can be a bit weird but once you get used to it it's easy. But unfortunately we can't lift very high and it gets expensive real fast

I'm pretty sure this joint was toast



I went straight for the gear puller and it came off no problems




All cleaned up


The new joint


New boot's on and crimped in place




Filling it with grease

It's actually pretty straight forward and easy to do. I actually had more trouble getting the driveshaft out then rebuilding the head

So I changed the rear and front diff fluid today

Here's the rear diff with the cover taken off


And the cover


All cleaned up



And this mess came out of the front diff. If you can't tell what I'm talking about it's the GREY oil, which means I got water in it. So I'm going to change the fluid again next week to flush the rest out.

Haha nope those are just pieces of RTV from the rear diff I peeled off. It was completely spotless inside.

Painted the rear axle, hitch, and front suspension today. Then I cut off the front air dam too. (sorry for the crappy cell pics, couldn't find the camera)

All primered up in the rear.






All done.







And here's the front

Looking good man. I am up in the dirty State quite often as my wife is stationed up there. I have a build thread going on too. When mine gets done in a couple months we will have to go out and get dirty if ya want. Keep up the good work.
