Well just to make that rear diff cover perfect..... it's leaking. For the first time in all my life installing a diff cover..... It's leaking due to a botched RTV application apparently. SO I get to peal that sucker off AGAIN and redo that. Maybe I can get over that $25 lube locker price tag someday!!!!! And avoid cleaning RTV off diff's covers and axle housings cause it's actually one of the things I like doing the least!!!!

Which is hilariously dumb on our part.... the 20 minutes it takes us to clean that crap off and re-apply, and $5 tube of messy RTV is WELL worth the price even used one time, let alone several. NOT to mention the strangle hold it has on your your diff cover to your axle and the pounding it sometimes takes to get them separated. Haha.... the more I think about it. It's really a no brainer but I will still just re do it the traditional way.

So this is what happens when the weather is crap, the jeep fund is in the red, and there is no motivation to hit the garage? LOL!

All the weather must have stayed up there with you.... it's clear blue down here. I thought it was going to be rainy today.
