It leaks a little and the JB weld is ugly! I was thinking if you were to weld a little flat stock to the top of the diff and then drill and grind down the flat stock little by little until the sensor is at the right depth. Just has to be a better way than JB weld.

OK done highjacking.

Zabeard, have you decided on a rear locker yet?
Since it looks like you are going for a lunchbox, I have had great luck with powertrax no-slip. I have one in my 8.8 and I love it. It is the smoothest locker I have ever run. My aussie works, but I have sheared off the pins twice. And it is noisy.

I found the best price on no slip here.

Back to watching this amazing build!
the locker for $430? might as well get a full detroit...
btw i am not putting the sensor in ABS isnt that important to me.

thanks!
but that shouldnt add that much?

i mean how much are we talking bout sticking out on each side?

i guess i just need to get a wheel that tucks a bit then stick way out..

what are your offsets or backspacing?

and thats a 64" RMS or watever the three letters are..

37x13.5x17....

i was hoping for 500, they were mounted once on a show truck. idk if they are supposed to be good crawler tires or not.

i paid 1400 shipped for 6 so im really not looking to make a profit just get some cash back to fund my project!
