    kinda ripped more stuff apart.
    removed front bumper plastics and removed vacuum ball. and plugged the hole on the valve cover. made no difference in drive or idle at all

    it had a crack in the just from touching it.


    QUESTION: is this a chrylser 8.25 rear axle?
    i cant find any tag or stamp. its pretty rusty.


    assumed i had a dana 35 but according to this chart. the bottom and top are flat like mine on a chr 8.25

    did the cut and fold mod. took all day cutting and welding. (only 1 side :/ so far
    super ghetto. but its folded and closed up completely.




    also after removing the fender flares, it was so rusted the wheel well and fender had a gaping hole. so i made a patch, welded it and sprayed bedliner(will be covered up with new fancy fender flares)


    **never mind the tires i have new 31s but i need to find some 16" steel wheels first
