    Nah. Straight axle housings are for wimps.

    I did clean yours up and wrapped them to keep them clean.

    Popped the front diff cover for the 1st time since BB '16, to fix a leak.

    So there's that. Was hoping to have it together to go wheeling next weekend, best guess is that I hurt it during Blazer Bash.

    A bunch of big ol' chunks of gear teeth in the bottom of the diff. Lucky it didn't lock anything up at speed. Totally crazy to not have any issues over that and not find it until pulling the cover to fix a leak.

    Just pull out the chunks and run it. Think of the weight savings!
