Thanks! I've had it since ~128,000 miles, about 154,500 miles on it now. I believe I got it in the early summer of 2009. It was made in August of 1999Nice work there. Hopefully will last a while.
Just curious how long you've owned your truck?
Wise guy ehh?so when you getting back under there and painting the rest of the rust?
Great job! Hope you were carefull around the threads of the fill and drain plug on the differential. That crap sticks like glue if it gets in there and dries. That's why I purposely avoided all nuts/bolts when I painted over the differential, rear driveshaft and backplate for the rear drums.All done! Truck is back on all four wheels now, seems a bit low after being up on stands all weekend... hmmm...
Of course now I see a spot I missed Guess I'll just get it next time I have the POR15 out.
Wow, nice work. Curious how long this repair lasted. My 2000 is leaking pretty bad and not sure what I should do. Thanks.Hi all,
I'm starting this thread in advance so that once I get this project started in a few minutes I don't decide I'm too lazy to post a decent writeup. For those who haven't seen my other thread, I have a leak in the rear differential due to rust. I will be attempting to repair it using JB Weld or a mig, depending on how the metal looks.
I will post pictures later on after I've made some progress.
