Its In!!!!!!

Ok, after 4 days, one very large left palm (due to swelling, i might tell how i managed that later), a few thousand choice words and about 200 bucks the locker is in. I finally had to drill out the drain plug and use a 1/2" pipe plug instead. Whoever thought to use a 3/8 ratchet for a bolt head was havin a bad day. All i have to do is bleed the brakes and put the rear driveshaft back in and put oil in and im back on the road. I cant wait to test it out.

Re: Its In!!!!!!

At least you have a drain plug. Someone at Jeep was sleeping when they came up with the Torx bolt, and then nobody decided to even put a drain plg in the rear end, so you get to fight with all of them when you change the oil.
