Been thinking about making my moabs beadlocks through either Champion or OMF Performance...What do you think?

They look nice, but take it step further and get Kev-Locks. They are the latest offroad fashion statement

Now that's funny. KevLocks. Hehehehe

Seriously though, that looks pretty good. Can that actually be done? I'd be all for it. I've already got a small chunk out of one of my rims edge. That setup would probably help.

Your rig looks nice, how about those AEV beadlocks? Similar style to the moabs. But the price is debatable, Real Debatable.

Bearing and nurturing,
Creating but not owning,
Giving without demanding,
This is harmony.

Yes it can be done. Champion beadlock does conversions in which you have to mail them your aluminum wheel, pay about $300 a wheel, and BAM...a beadlock.

Got around to installing the rear diff cover this morning since I dont go into work until late. Let me tell you the rear was a pain in the a$$ without putting the rear on jacks to allow the axle to sag. Spilled oil everywhere but I finished it.

Yeah, I didnt have the heart to tell him. But your a heartless @#$%$%$ aren't ya?

What was the problem with the rear diff? Getting the fluid in? We do that with a 6 or 7 foot long length of brake line. Stuff the one end into the fill hole and slip the tapered nozzle of the diff fluid bottle into the other end (cut the tapered nozzle a bit bigger than normal). Stand up along side of the vehicle and squeeze away. Usually use 1 1/2 to 2 bottles. So much easier than laying down and trying to tilt the bottle up in that limited space, and I have NEVER had any luck with those damn pumps (especially with Diff fluid).
