Did some more grease scraping on the trans and t/case this morning, & changed the fluid in both. Holy cow the trans fluid sure flies out of there when you pull the plug! Almost got a face full!

Replaced both front shocks, nothing fancy. Check out the ones that were on there, bushings shot, bouncing on the bolts.
