We also replaced the rear brakes. I was hoping to get by by reuseing the old drums, but they where shot. At $75 a pop for drums I could have been on my way to a disc swap. O well, this is last thing for this axle. the next step is an explorer swap with a locker, but that is a bit down the road.

I was just looking at that differential cover.

Looks nice. Can you get some shots that are a little farther away?
