Tried to QuickFix my leaking front diff cover by retighten the bolts, some i could turn a notch.
Cleaned down the mess and top it off, got about .1-.2 qts in there was not much leaked out

Also retightened the rear diff cover bolts, i have no leak, but still bolts can be tightens up, i guess the humpy mountain roads on the westcoast trip made them came loose a little.

Will keep an eye on the front, hopefully i dont have to pull the cover and RTV it again.

And remounted the front swaybar splash guard plastic thinghy, which have been around my Garage after the lift was mounted.
No Wonder why the mechanic did not put it back on, bolts and/or threads Are solid F up and rusted away, with all the patiance in my toolbox and huge amount of WD40 i got 1 broken, 2 in perfect, and 1 i had to give up out of 4 bolts, atleast its back on, phu

Found my fogs not working, broken wire one side, bad bulb on the other, found the OEM conectors full of corosion, might have to soldier and heat shrink Those conections to make them hold up against waterand salt.
Will look into fixing this soon.

Should look good once I paint it and then the cladding and front and rear bumper covers at the same time with the spray on bedliner. I'll post pictures once I get everything done.
I've heard a bunch of people say many different things about the difficulty level of removing the door cladding. Is it really that hard or bothersome to do? Should I just use newspaper and tape the upper part of the doors off? I'm worried about the paint running if I did that, though. Thanks for the heads up, fellas.
Cladding isn't hard to remove, but you have to be careful doing it. I did mine (since mine were bad and replaced it) starting from the bottom, and unattaching the foam tape used, and go up from there and carefull take them off. I painted mine off, but either way can work. Just do several light coats and you'll not have issues with it running. Just if doing on the vehicle have to be careful of overspray and tape it off well.

+1 cladding is easy, like cykaaro said just start from bottom up. If you decide not to take it off and accidentally get paint on the jeep, just spray some wd 40 on a rag and it will come right off!

I swapped the cheapie antenna mount for a heavy duty mount. SWR is good but could be better. I need to lengthen the antenna. That's a bit tricky with a fiberglass antenna with no tuning provision. A spring would help if I had the clearance for it.

You guys really wheel with those?

If you have any trees where you wheel that's an accident waiting to happen..
