Just cause you haven't seen enough "clean" pics of my rig.
(Yeah, these are
at least a year old. Note the BFG's in the background)
Here's something I came up with the last time around after I had the TrueTrac installed.
As some of you may know, (or haven't found out yet [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img])
it's a major PITA to get the front diff out if you have drop brackets.
The bracket interferes with the passenger side stub shaft, making it close to impossible to remove the diff.
Let alone, re-installing and getting a good seal would be even harder.
Sooooo, I just decided to drop the whole assembly intact. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
There's barely an additional 30 minutes required to get the pertinent components removed to drop it.
Here's a tip. Cut the head off a couple old bolts to thread in the case.
Makes lining up the differential a breeze.
Especially once you've got the required 1/4" bead of silicone sealant on the housing.
No chance of "mooshing" it around and losing the seal.
After the sealant has dried, and you've detailed the assembly, just jack it back up in place. [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
Make sure the rad-arm is in it's mount first, then "manuever" the axle housing pivot in place.
