Rock Kicker So my left rear axle seal is leaking. Anyone use this kit? http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0078U...I2TMI3VDGGU4NL
When I added it to my Amazon wish list a couple weeks ago, it was $237.79. Now it's $145.94 (38% drop in price). No reviews listed. Just wondering if anyone else made this purchase and had any input before I purchase. I'm not an axle guy so I don't want to order the wrong stuff and not realize it till I take it to the shop. Btw, it's an 03 Rubi.

Nope. Did not have to notch anything. It is a direct bolt on. I bought a 98 Durango steering gear box. The hardest parts were getting the pitman arm off, getting to the lines to disconnect, and then holding up the box to reconnect the shaft back on to the box. A friend to hold that gear box up is helpful!!!

Here is a link to my build thread and it has some pics and a little bit of description of the mod.

97WranglerOhio 1,200 or 12,000? Either way I like the army green paint.

Maestro Today I unbolted the seats and center console, cleaned everything, and sprayed dupi-color bed armor on the whole thing (about 4 cans, $12 each). Looks great.

Yesterday I fabbed my winch plate and welded it to my bumper and installed my new 1200 lb winch, I have the same bumper as the guy with those kc lights and winch from CL (awesome sounding deal btw).

Over the weekend, I painted my jeep from forest green to army green. Refreshing change.

Also my friend gave me this sweet grenade shifter knob, it's real. I love it.

Amen brotha.

I went a few months with out a top on at all and put the soft top (no hard top here, sold it for parts money back when building axles) back on last month. Boooooo....NJ life.

I broke mine a few weeks ago If u have access to a lift use it to prop the tub up. Disconnect all the bodymounts and the fa shroud. U can then lift the body up this six inches. Then get in there and chisel the old nut off and weld new one on. It took me maybe 5hrs I didn't break any other bolts though. Any other questions on it let me know

No chunks. Yep, that's the plan, partially because the store was out of the RP Synchromax I wanted so i wound up with Pennzoil. Thanks...

Rock Kicker Ordered Flowmaster Super 44 muffler. Love my Fm Super 40 on my XJ, figured I'd like this too. New injectors should be here today. Debating on K&N setup to compliment the exhaust but not sure. Sounds good on my XJ, but not really feeling any difference, especially for the cost. Any suggestions on similar, less expensive setups?

Jeffk1975 Installed some Raxiom LED headlight bulbs in my Hella H4 housings. Much better!

Also cleaned the throttle body a little.

Re-checked front and rear pinion angles. Both at 0* and still can't figure out pulsating vibration at 65mph.

Checked the oil and topped off the brake fluid.

Then me and my dog went for a ride in the country to test out the new headlights.

I believe its made by Snowbear. It was on my buddies F150 and I traded him some concrete work for it. Its 8', the switch only goes up and down so you manually angle it. The motor on it is made by Superwinch. It comes with a bracket that mounts to the specific vehicle frame but I welded some steel up and made a bracket that can be removed from the jeep. All in all its a cheaper homeowners plow but it gets the job done and I have no complaints.
