While waiting for the frame shop to give me the truck back, we are ordering parts.

Derale coolers for Transmission and Engine oil.



Also picked up a new Aluminum radiator from Griffin. No pics yet.

And here is our new HD rear Diff cover prototype.

It's for an air cooled diff, dummy.

Is there room for the bolt heads, especially after a weld bead? Gonna have to use SHCS's?

Right now the plan is to touch up the holes on the mill after welding, along with SHCS's. They will be welded inside and out.

That is what I assumed. That seems to be the best method, IME. Another way to do it is to weld the inside, then mill the indentations on the outside a little bigger than needed, then weld the outside. It leaves a continuous bead that way that some people feel looks better finished.

Sounds like a good plan although I'm not a big fan of SHCS's in that application. I milled mine out so I can use hex heads and get a socket on them.

I prefer flat head cap screws. Although they can be a bitch to get out sometimes as the bevel area has a lot of surface area to rust together. I like to use the white antisieze on the bevel part. I have the best luck of not damaging the head with them. Socket head or hex head are easier to damage, IME.

Rocks and wood get jammed in the head. The head gets crushed and you cant get a socket in it.

I haven't found a threaded fastener that is resistant to bashing rocks, even hex heads.

Oh they all get bashed. I've found that with a hex head, there are usually 4 decent flats left. I can usually pound a 6 point socket onto it and get it loose. I've had socket heads where the only way to get them loose is to weld a bolt onto the head.

To @busyfixin's point, flat heads work better than socket heads but if the hex does get bashed in, welding or drilling out is your only option.

None of them are wrong, I just prefer the Hex.

Ditto.

Of course I have never desert raced, so my opinion in this case may not matter.

We will also be working on a "Diff Skid" that might protect those lower bolts a little bit. haven't gotten that far into its design yet.

Could be true. I have heard that your rig is never driven off road and is a super clean XJ that looks brand new. Web wheeler for sure.

That is why it is such a great deal and someone should buy it.

Sorry for the hijack.

Back to your build!
