Got the axle back together Friday night and have been driving the BKO all weekend. It's been a few weeks. I missed it.
When I started buttoning up the diff I decided that I wanted to try a Lube Locker gasket. I've heard nothing but good things about them and, while I'm a firm believer in "The Right Stuff" for sealing covers on, I grew weary of prying off the cover and having to re-prep the gasket surfaces every time I want inside my diff. Scrapers take too long and wire wheels get debris inside the housing no matter how much you try to cover the gears/bearings.
The only place in town that had Lubelockers in stock was about 40 miles away. The drive sucked, but this place was a damn serious outfit. It's called Super Duty Headquarters (SDHQ). It was like a wheeling candy store. Bumpers, recovery gear, air tanks, wheels, shocks, etc. Tons of pro-comp stuff for Baja rigs and such. They even had a gigantic "fabrication" section with laser-cut goodies, gussets, brackets, heims, full selection of grade 8 harware... I mean, you name it. Over all, some of the baddest gear I've seen in one of the cleanest, most well-organized stores you could ask for. This place was no joke and I will absolutely be back. They blow away all the other wheeling shops in town.
Just wish they were closer...
