Just wanted to post an update to my project for anyone doing and 07 rear diff swap. The nickname rotbox liberty as the rockers are gone the oil and ****** pan are getting there Newengland. But for anyone attempting to swap out rear ends it can be completed with 2 3-1/2 ton jacks a bottle jack and a piece of cut wood from the backyard (incase you dont have a ****** jack) its poo doing it the wrong way but it is possible with patience a friend and beer. This things not going to the junkyard yet. I’d like to be able to eventually “legally” drive it on the road again but it will be a woods truck for now. I havent had much time for it but now that it actually moves under its own power again its given me some ambition.



I hope this is the right page for this. Just wanted to keep a documentation on my progress slowly even though it looks rough it might inspire people.

The word blocker on here is nuts!

I think all the KJ's in salty places have been bitten by the rust bug! I've spent hours welding mine up!

Yeah i gotta completely redesign the rockers but it would probably be better than what chrysler slapped on in 07.

Apparently "nuts" is an acceptable term, but the shortened version of transmission is not?:rolleyes:

Wd40 in the rockers, in the bottom of the doors have kept my 2006 just about rust free. I’m in north east PA.
