the rear axle must of had something go wrong

because when i was testing out the 4x4 it seemed to be driving fine and all a sudden it felt like a tire poped and it was pulling hard to the right but that wasn’t the case what had actually happened was someone replaced the ring and pinion in with a 3.73 when the front axle still had the 3.55 so that was interesting but when i got it home i promptly welded the diff and went drifting :) so anyways i ripped out the whole interior and redid the head liner and put killz mat everywhere and i mean everywhere if i could see it i put killz mat on it under the carpet doors everywhere and i will say it helps a lot once that was done i put in new carpet and had the seats redone

and then i added all led gauge and interior lights and i would highly recommend doing that (if you haven’t already) then i added the jcr center console brace and i cant add anymore pictures but if y’all want some i can give you them so anyways the plan is to put on a re 5.5 long arm and swap the rear for a d44
