But looks like the pinion seal. This will be a first if I actually do the fix...

I think I'll give it a go. Seems doable and I have the time since I have a spare vehicle. Had to add a small amount of gear oil after only about 4.5k from last service. I'm beginning to wonder if the slight whine I hear on the highway could actually be the front pinion bearings. Couldn't hear it with the old tires but now it's just audible while VERY lightly on the throttle. Almost disappears under full coast and load. Didn't notice any play where the pinion goes into the diff. Any suggestions or how to info are greatly appreciated.

Top speed of about 42mph, but it'd pull a house down lol.

Yesterday, drove it to WV for a girl’s haunted halloween weekend.

We ate dinner at a steakhouse in Martinsburg formerly owned by Al Capone. That was cool...and the food was great.

Today, looking at it get rained on in the parking lot. Sigh. At least yesterday was a gorgeous day.
