Replaced both axle seals, wheel bearings, and brake shoes since the drivers seal blew out on the first wheeling trip and coated the drum and almost nonexistent friction material on the shoe so figured it was about time to fix em. The passenger side didn't catastrophically fail like the drivers side but it still was seeping pretty decently so I did that side as well.

Hey, rivets are friction material...

What brand were the shoes?

They sure are until they destroy the drums!
They are centric shoes and were the heavy duty option on rockauto. Only cost $18

Thought so, I just put them on my truck with new centric drums too. I've used them before and can't beat then for function and price!

In the middle of doing the monstaliner install right now and couldnt be happier with how it's turning out. A few things to keep in mind for people who want to try it on their rig.
1. Lay it on thick keep the roller full at all times as I didnt use enough on the first coat and now i have to do a third since I have leftovers. (Not that im complaining since now I can get the high traffic areas extra thick)
2. VENTILATION. I'm serious this stuff is STRONG. Im doing it outside with all the doors open and I'm still seeing unicorns
3. Buy a third roller. You'll need it.
4. PREP PREP AND THEN PREP SOME MORE. I spent at least 3 weeks prepping it a little bit at a time after work. (The rain on all the days I had free really made the process way longer than it couldve been) Sand and clean everything and I strongly suggest chassis saver as a base coat that stuff is no joke. It seals very well and prevents rust. Make sure you scuff it and acetone wipe everything.

Finished putting the interior back in the jeep over the weekend for the first time in a mo th it's driveable. That's if it would start of course! Go to start it up to give it a drive around the neighborhood and lo and behold the starter is shot. Ah well they dont call it a project for nothing
