Thanks Mike. It's going slowly, but that's just fine given how long we have for the project.


Well, I originally planned on giving Mira her first welding lesson while welding a Ballistic Fabrication skull on her Dana 44 differential cover. She's with her mom this weekend, though, and I was itchy do do some welding. I'll have her help with the axle bracketry instead, as that'll be coming up before long. I should have my '05 LJ Dana 44 pulled within a week or two in preparation for my D70U install (photo HERE), and will be reworking that with XJ brackets.

So, here's Mira's "hardcore" diff cover after some primer (top coat to come soon). It's stamped with a 1987 date, and is the HD style (1/8" thick). It'll give her more protection than the thinner D44 cover that came stock on the LJ.
