question : are your replacement tail lights street legal in your area as the originals also showed from the sides ?

I honestly don't know for sure. Look legal enough to me though. Lots of vehicles I see on the road have taillights that aren't visible from the side. Should be fine 🤞

Edit: I just looked up the motor vehicle act and it looks like these lights are acceptable.
Tail lamps
4.15
(1)A motor vehicle, trailer or semitrailer must be equipped with 2 tail lamps, mounted on the rear of the motor vehicle, trailer or semitrailer, that are capable of displaying only red light visible from a distance of 150 m to the rear on both sides of the motor vehicle, trailer or semitrailer at an angle of 45° from the longitudinal axis of the motor vehicle, trailer or semitrailer.

Got my front skid plate built today. Very simple. Should do the trick.

Started building an Explorer rear diff. Im not doing a full build just wanted the more available axle shafts and disc brakes. Im doing a truss, anti-wrap bar, and using stock axle shafts. Ill just swap in my spool and gears from the old axle when im ready.

Went camping for a few nights last weekend in Nakusp and found some hot springs. About a 5 hour road trip from home. Didnt find as much snow as we were hoping but it was still a blast.

My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
I want to do that!

T case was leaking from a couple spots so decided it was time for a rebuild. New bearings and seals going in. Surprisingly everything looks good in there. Should have it back in very soon.
