Nice write up Ricardo and thanks for sharing! No kidding loaded axles are heavy, especially with the 3rd member still attached!

I'm like you as far as taking my time cleaning everything up as I go along. Makes for much easier re-assemble. Don't forget a good coat of rattle-can paint!

Glad the WBPP was helpful. My first one was to me too, and helps take the scary away from diving into stuff with little more than a manual and some hand tools.

The locking hub looks like normal rock-rash. Nothing a little cleaning up with a dremel won't cure :-)

You might consider pulling the 3rd and the sway bar off the axle just to make it a little easier to heft around. OTOH, you needed a new set of free weights to work out with anyway, right?
