Default my latest mods

so i decided i didn't like the open rear end well i had a hook up on a 8.8 lsd rear end out of a ranger. so i bought it cheap almost a steal... the drums were turned and everything on the inside of the drum is new. pulled the differential cover off no metal shavings, minimal wear on the gears. and fluids were changed constantly. so we cleaned it up painted it up. it had a fiberglass differential cover witch i don't know who thought that one up... so i used the other differential cover on my old one and cleand it up and threw some paint on it and painted my brake drums red. and since i did the body lift we lifted the exhaust so it looks good again lol. and the last picture of the fox emblem is what my buddy made to replace the his chevy emblem on the grille and when he wrecked it i snagged it from him. but it was in way worse condition. it was all corroded and not well kept.. basically he got a cnc machiene to cut it up and welded some bolts on the back. when i got it i began sanding it and cleaning and found out it was some stainless so i started sanding it left right up down for 4 hours and then hit it with some polishing compound. i later made the inner lines black i haven't installed it yet thinking of a location lol.

Cool man. I like to see people work on their own trucks. Keep it up.
