    The 14 bolt is unique. Pinon depth shims are part of the pinion housing flange. You pop off the flange that holds the pinion with 5 bolts I think, then adjust the shim pack between the housing and flange.
    The differential adjust using spanners in the housing. No shims there. This setup looks very straightforward and simple.

    I believe the Dana 60 is similar to the 44.

    Get that truss welded on and I'll swing my LJ by so you can install it for me. I still lack the body lift and fenders to wrap up my first round of cash dump on this one.

    Truss is supposed to be delivered today. Barnes 4WD has some stuff for the LJ. I kick myself for not keeping my 2006 LJ Rubicon. But my daughter didn't want a Jeep. About 2 years later, she wanted the Jeep. I told her good luck in finding a low mile rig for a decent price.

    My son is 12. I have a few more years. I'm hoping between now and then he can take an interest in wanting to modify the LJ to a point he calls it his.

    Back on the tech side of things. I specifically went to 33's. I didn't want to go 35's and advance the date I do something about the LP Dana 30 in the front.

    Started with this at 6:00.

    Got to this at 8:30. 2.5 hours of using the portable bandsaw and sanding disc. That is a bunch of cutting and grinding.

    I broke out of my funk and started cutting brackets off the rear axle. I’ve got some grinding to do and thinking about media blasting the axle.

    Ready for the axle truss, then the ARB and gears.
