Are they the rogues? Love the style. Just not the chrome. Have a set I want to have refinished. obviously not in chrome.

Thanks, that's why I've been putting it off. I would get them pressed on, just about to break down and pay someone else to sweat. I've been keeping the diff full since I've noticed the leak. Trying to keep it from going out, that's the last thing I need.

Keep an eye on it. Usually the seal leaks because of the bearing. I broke down and had mine done when I was working out of town. The metal wire on the caliper was actually rubbing on the hat of the rotor.

Had the 'econo power' sticker on the battery I got when I got the jeep. Died in less than a year. Strange it's over another sticker though, which what looks to be the edge of a Ford logo? As long as the connectors are done and it's giving you power

Yeah the rogues. I like the style too, just the chrome is a little too "blingy" as the wife says lol. Thinking about trying the Dupli-Color wheel coating in graphite or silver.

Yeah...I meant to put masking tape over that so you guys wouldn't see that part... ... Actually "Econopower" is a branch of Interstate batteries..their refurb company...so I have some confidence in it...maybe yours was at the end of it's life when you got it.

Terminals look good though...right?

It's not too hard to fix that leak if it's around the seal, all you need to do is pull the cover and scrape off the old gasket or sealant and put some gasket maker on it, I did on both my diffs and it works like a charm...and as far as the seals go, it's a bigger mental hurdle than it is a project haha it's really not as hard as it seems. But word of advice- replace both seals if you're gonna do it, chances are replacing one can cause the other to blow out.

Nice. How much is it to powder coat them?

Bring it to the Lou. Did mine in an hour or so for each side. Bought a shop press off CL and makes things a breeze.
