Worked on my father in laws jeep yesterday, take a look at how chewed up these spider gears were! We replaced them with a good used set since aftermarket replacements were almost $400 bucks for a factory dana 44 track lok.





Also managed to get the bumper bed lined and put on the jeep, I think I'm also going to run these bushwacker flares to attempt and stay as road legal as possible here in Oregon.

I like the look of that bumper and the fender flares look good. They always add a beefed up, tough look. Keep it up, I know it gets tough with a newborn, congratulations!

Love the build! Yep the SD 50/60 is so offset to drivers side the driveshaft can be an issue depending on the front suspension design...thankfully the BDS long we had cleared with no issues...the LJ we have built now with the same axles hits that drivers side upper link mount so some bumpstopping had to be done :P

Thanks! This is the most fab work Ive ever done, and I can say I now see why everyone wants a 78-79 D60. They cost easily 4x what I paid for the SD60 so Im fine with it. I actually just made a custom front drive line to see if it helps my clearance issues. It adds a extra 1/8" of clearance and didnt cost me a dime so if it works great if not ill toss it in the scrap pile!
