    Well, I was driving home tonight from work, it is a bit cold (25 degrees or so). Anyway, headed out from work, got going for a bit and I heard a loud BOOM from my engine. It kept driving fine, so I figured I ran something large over and it hit the undercarriage (with some doubt). Anyway...

    The Week that Was and Some WTF Moments...

    I'm looking at swapping in some higher geared thirds out of a early 80s BJ60 into my 88 62. They are both locked (Lockrights) and my rear is currently locked as well (lockright too). Would this be a straight swap, or would there be any issues with the diff flanges or the fact that the rear...
