Icon10 Fresh paint 8.8

I installed my 8.8 on monday.Its out of a 2009 xlt 4.0 supercab 4x4 with 17K miles.I was a little pissed at the J/Y for pulling it and letting it sit in the rain got a little rusty.Got tired of seeing rust and Junk yard stock numbers on today so i fixed that.

nice, should have just painted everything other than the shocks. I buy a few cans of 99 cent flat black spray paint and just have at it every once in a while.

Thought about it may do so in a few weeks need to wash all the mud off everything first.I bought 3 cans of krylon rust tough semi flat and didnt even use a whole can on the axle.

2010-2011s are the only ones that come with discs.

i don't understand how that pertains to the topic though, except that it has to do with axles.
