so i was finishing up something on the rear axle, taking me forever bc of work and being new to this.
add a trail gear diff armor


installed the differential but then i relized i put the old one back in, instead of the 4.88 that i had draining in the back yard, so stupid


started draining the extra front axle i had with the 4.88 and this is how it looks


truck with the bed and tires

extra front axle

so clean





well i found out the front axle had never been regrear unlike i was told, he is the original axle gasket,


i bought a few new thing and got something for christmas from my girlfriend, how did she know? well i gave her a list of things :)


had the great guys from anysevenoffroad build me a front hanger, great guys
