    Iím getting the radiator flushed. They said the will rotate the tires for $10. I said why would I rotate tires that have less than 100 miles on them??

    Wow. This thing performed way better than I expected. 1/2 a dozen times I did burnouts in the gravel and received tire tracks from both tires. I think I have a limited slip rear end. Maybe a locker, but I didn't hear it ratchet. Although I had a Detroit locker in my Dana 60, and I never heard it either. but I wont know till I pull off the diff covers.

    Found some other intersting info
    Dana 44 up front
    Spicer 9.25 in the rear
    NP231 T case

    You don't gotsta pull the cover. Jack up the rear, spin a tire. If they go in opposite directions, it open. If they both turn the same, you got some kind of locker, LSD.
    BUT, dont take that as gospel. If it a worn LSD, then it may act funny, dont by new fluid until you pull the cover and check.

    You do have one strong tcase in there.

    If I remember right it's the same transfer case that came in the XJ. And I believe someone told me that it is also in the blazer ZR2? Except a little bit beefier version in there.

    Big shout out to Biff and Mike for helping with the bumper. Well actually more for doing most of the work. And a special thanks to Adam for getting this going in the right direction with the frame mounts.
