Took out the plastic molding piece thingy that is around the shifter and 4x4 shifter and cleaned it down and started painting the inside dash. I am going from that grey or weak black to just plain black. I am just going to do one piece at a time. It will take some time but will look sharp when I am done.

Over the past two days, I replaced the front and rear differential fluid, and the tranny oil.

Two things:
1. Gear oil smells HORRID.
2. The rear differential is an ass to get to so you have to jack the jeep up by the frame to move the gas tank out of the way.

Transmission shifts noticeably smoother though(not just placebo effect).

A cowling bar, in the event of a flop it'll take the initial hit and flex in, tied in to the sliders and tube fenders.

Reaching the top bolts of the rear diff cover is rough to do with the gas tank. So you lift the jeep by the frame, and let the suspension stretch so the rear end is lower. Thus making it easier to reach the bolts

If you are sitting in your jeep, on the left side of your transmission is a 15/16" fill plug. open this up. on the right side of your transmission, there is a 15/16" drain plug on the side of your transmission. Open this and let the oil drain out (collect and recycle). Wipe the metal shavings paste off of the magnet and tighten it back up.

I filled it up with 10w-30 Mobil1 full synthetic motor oil.

After more reading, I may let the Mobil 1 run in there for a month, then fill up with read line mt 90. There's a great debate over why jeep said go with 10w-30 motor oil and whatnot going around.

The previous "quick write up" is for an ax-15***

I'm not responsible for you messing anything up to your vehicle.

Is just the facet that I worked on Navy Aircraft for so long that makes me ask whats so hard about reaching the bolts?

This. Working blind, in tight places, and upside down were daily occurrences.

Changed my rear pinion seal. It would have been a lot easier if I would have started with the impact and didnt forget to put the washer back on before I put it all back together! Was so mad when I was cleaning up and saw the washer, had to take it all apart again.
