Shit seal. Sorry to bust your balls about leaking seals. I assumed that you knew better. Fuck you vatozone.

I hate this continual stream of bad parts.
There once was a magical time when parts dudes knew their shit and parts fit like they were designed.

Don’t apologize, it wouldn’t be DR without shit taking.

I do know better, but desperate times call for desperate measures!

I got an extra spicer seal now, of course I’ll never need it since I have it.

Needed to service the transmission and install a temperature sensor in the pan. Pulled the pan and inside of the trans was perfect, fluid was pretty used though. Of course the fancy exhaust I made blocked the pan from coming off🤦🏼‍♂️

Whipped up a quick little bung on the lathe and welded it into the pan. Tig welding on that thin pan was a challenge for me. It passed the leak test though, so we will mark it a victory.

No helper today. He was at school.

Clean up the wiring I did in February. I threw the LED lights on the front and wired them super ghetto just to have them for KOH.

I yanked everything out and did it the right way. Added two extra auxiliary circuits while I was there. Blue Sea fuse box, bus bar, tons of wire, terminals, shrink wrap and about a million zip ties.

The garage helper was super busy building too. Little dude was super proud of himself for building this. He also helped me sort the new tool roll/Jeep tools.

Hoping to make it to the clean up in Barstow next month. Fingers crossed it all works out.
