    I've always liked those Colorful Colorado mud flaps.

    Negative. I have a "Save the Squares" sticker on the back. :tongue1: And I wouldn't actually put mud flaps on anything. But if I was forced to, those would be it.

    No, but they are round and do spin.

    Martin brought to my attention a set of 3.42 geared 10 bolt axles on Facebook marketplace. They are from a 1990 K5 and may or may not have been rebuilt 50-60k miles ago.

    They have 30 splined shafts instead of my weaker 28 spline shafts currently, plus a better ratio for when I upgrade to 33s.

    Luckily I didn't scratch or stain my mom's Buick Enclave hauling them home.

    This is a great thread! Thanks for all the pics and details. I just picked up a 89 Jimmy and am excited to get it baselined and start enjoying it.

    That’ll be a nice upgrade from your current 2.73’s.

    I've drained the surprisingly-not-very-stinky differential fluid, which corroborates the seller's story that these were "rebuilt" 50-60k miles ago.

    I've purchased
    • New fluid
    • Degreaser
    • Brake cleaner
    • Brake fluid
    • Rtv silicone
    • Spray paint

    Still waiting on
    • Warmer weather
    • Or insulation for my garage
    • Or a bigger heater for my garage
