    You've done a tremendous job! Your donor truck couldn't have been more close in configuration either, that was a great match.

    Just wish it had thr posi too :/

    Curious, i dont have any red thread locker
    .. just the blue, i need to put the pin back in on the diff and close it up so i can add fluid. But i dont want that housing pin to work its way out. Everybody says use red permanent lock.. i guess i have to make a special trip to buy the red thread lock :/
