    It is nice to not have to watch another rig or 2 go through a little water to make sure you're not gonna do serious damage. Have had water over the hood a few times since I put mine on, she just keeps purring right on through it.

    on paint/powdercoat - I'd just rough up that chrome and shoot it with high temp primer then paint it. especially if powdercoat guy is putting out shoddy work.

    Changed out my power steering pump today. Got a bad leak after my off road adventures last week.

    In the middle of installing a new head, lifters, push rods, rocker arms, and a hi-flow water pump.

    The cylinders were BAD! I put a before and after of it. Took me over an hour to get all the crap off it.

    Iíll be finishing it all up tomorrow. Broke a couple of bolts to have to mess with that in the morning.

    Anyone know why I can only find RHD Dana 30 3.55? I need a new front axle. Maybe. This is what I opened up the other day


    I can lift up on my pinion and walk it around so itís shot.

    How hard is it to replace the bearings and seals? My skill level is about a 4.

    I don't know the answer to this but I pose another question for more knowledgeable folks that may help you. Can you use a low pinion driver's side diff (standard rotation) from a tj, yj, zj, wj, on your high pinion passenger diff? Just thinking you may be able to pick up a used grand cherokee axle pretty cheap and if it fits swap the internals over. That is, if it damaged parts and not just bearings.

    I would say that is not quite enough for a diff rebuild. But I can tell you that if you truly have found right hand drop D30s cheap, pick one up and get a left had drop too. You will have the best of both worlds after you combine the two and get rid of those unit bearings in the front. Old school hubs are much stronger and more reilable

    The left hand drop D30s were all like our XJ, YJ, TJ and ZJs, left hand drop with unit bearing hubs. The right had drop axle all had free wheeling hubs as far as I know, which are stronger. It makes a slick upgrade for the D30 to put the old school knuckles and hubs on the newer D30
