Isnít that what it looks like?  Boomer either is secretly involved with medieval re-enactments, or is part of a Pumpkin Chunkiní team.

Spent some time working outside in the freezing cold this weekend getting my new bumper on...   of course, jammed up the oil seal (never the first time) on the swing out, so a couple days waiting for a replacement.  Still, only maybe an hour of work left.

It take up a good deal of space in my back yard,  but man it has been helpful!    Hell, I plan on using it to get the spare on the tire carrier.

Replaced my front Dana 30 with a new Ultimate Dana 44 with E-locker. Also added a Synergy heavy duty drag link. Canít wait for the first Rausch trip later this month.

With the alloy axles and 1350 u joints this is a sweet upgrade!  Don't forget to follow the break in instructions.  Generally, you'll see recommendations for synthetic lube, but I typically run a cheaper conventional gear lube for the break in, then switch to a conventional 85W-140 Torco GL-5 gear lube, which I run in all my axles.  It may seem counter intuitive but conventional gear lube acts as a much better heat sink than synthetic oil.  

After having a bunch of failures with their rears, Currie conducted a study.  What they found was that the temperatures in their rears with synthetic oil was much, much higher than rears with conventional oil.  Currie then switched to conventional gear oil only and the failures rates were virtually eliminated.  Now, if they, Currie, find out a customer runs synthetic oil, they void the warranty.
