Curious ... how did you measure the diff fluid? I have a pump which will fit the oil bottles but want to plan a good way to make sure I'm putting in the right amount.
Ignore the fact that his Jeep is lifted and on a rack which tilts the diff and will cause an under fill. But this is basically how you do a diff fluid change.

Perhaps I should be more specific. I am replacing my diff cover and the fill plug hole is at a different spot. Need to measure the actual volume being transferred so I stay in spec. :)

Ahhh!!! I replaced my covers too.

Most of the time, aftermarket covers will require more fluid. JT differential housings with OEM covers require just a shade under 2qts front and rear. My Yukon covers required about 2.5 in the rear and 2.3 in the front.

I simply filled till fluid dripped out of the fill hole.

I’ve never seen the driveshaft dropper before.

Are you still running the 2” lift?

How close to “straight” does the driveshaft appear now?

Installed a Tazer mini bracket and gas cap holder from etsy.

Installed a driveshaft dropper from Rock Jock.

Mounted a new bike rack for my new bike (Happy new bike day to me!)

Put on the tube doors and went for a ride/cruise.

I've got the Mopar 2" lift with 1.5" leveller in front and 0.75" in the rear for the weight of the winch/overlanding gear. I didn't measure angles before/after, but by eye it appears a bit straighter.

That comes with the AEV 2” spacer lift. Makes me think it should be standard for real lifts.

Well have a seat and a drink lol, I have a rebel off-road full rack, Mopar Beadlock wheels with “Linda’s sunset” belton spray paint for the rings, 35x12.5 general X3’s, Apex quick disconnects, rough country tube bumper with the lights they include (front), warn evo 10-s winch, currently waiting delivery of the rear bumper, 2 JL tazer minis, a front locker and the hauk off-road snorkel. Debating on the AEV 2” spacer but then I’ll want to upgrade to 37’s with 4.88 gears most likely.
Please keep me posted on your build. I’m interested to see where you end up.

RR headlight covers. easy install especially on a hot day it unclips super quick. just remember to add a dab of locktight on the screws. If you got a front trail cam remember theres 2 wires connected to the grill.
