Sure. Northridge 4x4. The Dana part number is 10132305. Good for stock up to a 6” lift. That part is for advanced Dana 44 axles. They have different part numbers for Dana 60’s. It includes the carrier bearing spacer, recommended for lifts over 2”. I already had the spacer, so now I have an extra.

mine shipped directly from Dana, and they do not know how to pack things. Pretty loose in a large diameter tube. After my experience, I’d want it shipped from the reseller next time to ensure it’s packed well. I was told that Dana ships pallets to Northridge, so less beat up than single tubes via UPS. Chassis paint fixed all the scratches though.
So the shaft still uses 2 CV joints and one u-joint at the rear. Hmmm

These are so stupid. I wasn’t going to buy them. But because I know they exist… the silver latches stick out to me so much every time I get into my truck. So I bought the stupid covers.

I guess I’m even more stupid because I bought the carbon fiber covers.

Finished the grey/black badge conversion on the Rubicon. Very satisfied.
Excuse the repeat photos but I just wanted to show how they play together, style-wise.

Not today, but a couple of weeks ago before going on vacation and forgetting I did it.

Added Bolt hood lock. Fairly easy install once I bought a bigger pop rivet setting tool. Mine was too small (that's what she said). Using sharp wire cutters gave me a decently trimmed opening. I think it looks better than the JL insert that came with the lock. (JL insert doesn't work btw).

I will probably try and clean it up some more when I take the grill back off to install winch in the next few weeks. The plastic is pretty soft, so should clean up easy. Have too many higher priority projects to get it done right now.

Typical maintenance, I have a license plate light out and when I was looking around for any damage or spots that needed paint touch up while I was down there I noticed this dent. Anyone else have this? It's clearly from the swaybar link. Didn't realise they came that close together.
