BTDT, Lesson learned. She either gets out now, or just doesn't go! LOL

Is that along the lines of if you have a pain in your leg and do this then the pain in your leg will go away?

Also can verify that horse poop on your boots makes the smell of spilled gasoline in the carpet no longer as strong.

I'll try heating it up really good the next hot day we have. Then try a steam clean. We'll see if that helps it at all.

What doesn't help is that my windows are all tinted at 15%. Not going to get as hot as it could.

Looks stout! Glad to see you back in business.

As for the carpet, hmmmm. Maybe some deodorizer or Arm and Hammer plus a steam vac?

Yanked the rear diff last night.

It was time for an oil change and I wanted to see how the new pattern was wearing. The oil was quite dirty, which I expected, because I knew I couldn't get ALL the metal dust out of the housing from the work I did.

Bummer deal was that the copper line got nicked by the ring gear. It still held pressure just fine, but, since I have the diff out in a bucket, I figured, what the heck? Got a new one coming next day air from ARB. Time to pick up a miniature tubing cutter from the store, and get my new line trimmed out.

Next I'll be changing out my tranny/tcase oil to attempt to locate my extremely annoying whining noise. We'll see if an oil change does the trick, or whether a tcase tear down is in my future.

The other possibility is a tranny input bearing. This is certainly possible, as it has almost 300k on it. In that case, I'll be looking at a marlin rebuild kit, which wouldn't be the worst in the world, since my syncros are shot in 1st and 2nd, and it'd give me an excuse to buy a press

However, after the oil change, its time for some trails!

Ran another test run this past weekend to shake down the new repair.

This time, things went a little better. The flat belly is awesome. It just slides over stuff. It will take some practice, as, it seems new techniques will be needed. In the past, I've gone 10.7 up stuff, and, if it bottomed out, I'd just back off and try another line.

Yesterday, however, I found that, I'd bottom out, and not be able to go anywhere in 10.7. But, by backing up about 6", and shifting to 4.7, I was able to bump it, and crawl right up.

A couple pics:
