Awesome advice, thank you!

Is there a torque spec I should follow? Or just crank it all down nice and tight?
There is no torque spec, and a torque wrench won’t fit on the upper bolts as the cat is in the way. You have to use a ratchet wrench. I used gear wrench because they are long.
The capture nuts on the frame are the weakest link so I ran a tap thru them a couple times just to clean them out. If no tap just use one of the new bolts. Then test fit. One of my top holes was a hair off and a quick bore with the drill make it perfect. All super fun while on your back wrestling a big arse slider!

If you get an extra rubber isolator/mount and bolt it directly to your jack. Then bolt that directly to the transfercase. No worries about it falling off and you can align it much easier

That's a good idea except the isolator bolts to the transmission and not the t-case. I'll make this modification since I'll be yanking the H55F in my FJ60 soon.

Did a little carpet replacement work and started going black on the interior trim. Dyna deck, 3/16 edging, 3M VHB tape and SEM color coat.
One piece replacement seems to be a no go so was able to pull it off with one Dynamat deck. Super heavy and thick vinyl. Split the middle to save some cost and works with the Goose gear drawers going back in and mid seats never going back in. Mid section could be done with 2 larger pieces and alot of waste.
This with the edging would make a great durable rear mat helping with heat and noise.

Nice. I also want to do vinyl flooring but cant find a vendor for the whole floor as one piece.

Here. Now.
I took off Friday morning for a sierra camping trip and stopped in Auburn for a sandwich or something, came back and discovered the rear pinion seal all blown: gear oil EVERYWHERE.

:eek: :eek: :eek:

It had begun leaking a bit a while back, and maybe as a premonition I packed a spare jug of gear oil. And I needed it. I limped myself the 40 miles home thinking, Well so much for that weekend getaway...

I get home, and on the porch is the replacement seal I had ordered last Monday. Temperatures were hovering around 102 so that wasn't gonna happen LOL. But I removed a good bit of the oil with about a half gallon of Simple Green...

Next morning at 0700 and a cup of coffee it was a more comfortable temp of 65 so I went to work to replace the thing. 55 minutes later I was all buttoned up and ready to go again.

Question is, people always say you have to re-set the preload, etc, etc when you do this, depending on what type of sleeve or washer or whatever is in there behind the bearing. But what if you return everything to exactly what it was before? Is this something I should consider a trail fix? Or can I relax and carry on?

Of course!

Well anyway, I made it up there, eventually.

Rewired my auxiliary power from under the passenger seat to the passenger rear quarter and deleted a ton of wire and titrated down to the accessories I use.

Built a power cable using retractable wire (not sure this is what it’s called. The coiled up slinky stuff). Installed DWG Off-road tilting fridge slide on top of a Land Shark Outfitters drawer.

Pictures uploaded in a weird order.

Very pleased with the results.
