what is the symbol on the rear cover ?

Looks a lot like the Dorman brand logo with part numbers under it, to me..

Looked like you had some Black Ops Off-Road Parts !

LoL !

Was wondering, did you do the white grease test on the gears to see if they were fitting properly ?

I *obsessed* over the gear pattern since this is my first one.  Earlier in this thread you can see pics of my different pinion depth/backlash setups as I was trying to dial it in.
