    That’s what I’ve heard, I’m gonna do the clutch too since I’m in that far. My buddy has a cheap harbor freight one so I’ll use that when the time comes

    How many miles on it? I changed my rear main seal recently when we had the engine out. It was just starting to leak. Some oil seepage and lots of debris (dirt/mud/crud) attached to it. I am at 195K.

    Yup. Running thru water with a high grit content will definitely get to your seals. Not just the rear main, but also the t-case output seals and the front diff axle seals.

    Just ordered me one of these carbon spoilers and also a little carbon wrap to do the chrome on my door handles and I have a roll big enough to do a hood or roof wrap with.

    You don't HAVE to have a transmission jack. Makes it easier, but I've done it without one two different times. Wasn't really that bad. Just used a big floor jack.

    Rear main leaking will pretty much always get oil on the clutch and ruin it, so replacing it really isn't an option, it's a must. If it isn't slipping now, it will soon if you keep driving it. Even if it's not slipping, it will almost certainly have enough oil on it that you would need to chainge it.

    Ok... If you have the patients and temperment I do you HAVE TO HAVE a transmission jack.

    Unless you like making up cuss words and throwing tools across your garage.

    Because lining up for the bolts is a mutherfucker.

    Although I was speaking about an auto trans. I'm sure manual is a bit easier.

    Rotated my tires and chopped my exhaust just before the leaf spring.
    Hopefully it doesn't hurt the spare tire being that close.

    Only thing that was bad was the damn hydraulic lines. Everything else was actually pretty easy.

    line start spinning with the fitting? thats the biggest issue with doing any rack if it has a little bit of rust.

    or the tight fit.
