gettin ready for the badlands and UMC this weekend!
Fuel cell ring should be here today, so last night i pulled the gas tank and whil i was at it figured id do some other things.
with the gas tank out of the way i can finally put the UCF DIY diff cover on that i made like two yrs ago
Also, decided to flip my calipers to the front so one, theyre up out of the way of rocks, two the brake lines are on the top of the axle, and three, i can outboard my lower mounts further to get a little better shock geometry.
It was actually really easy. pull the diff cover, pull the rotor and calipers, take out the center pin. push the shaft in towards the center, knock the c-clips out, and pull the shafts. Theres 4 bolts that hold the backing plate on. I pulled the dust cover and all the ebrake hardware out of mine bc, well, it was the only remaining evidence of an ebrake on my jeep lol.
i guess i lost the pic, but the shock is so close to the caliper that id have to take the shock off to pull the caliper bolt far enough to remove the caliper.
so take the pass backing plate and pass caliper and bolt it to the driver side... yeah... its that simple...
so as you can see the lense on my phone had some grease on it so sorry bout that, i think i had less than 3 hrs from pulling the tank to pickin up tools, it was a really easy job and def one of thos, wtf didnt i think to do this sooner? hopefully more fuel cell stuff to come
