Looks pretty nice. Guess you have to use a pump to remove the gear oil now since you eliminated the drain plug.

You remove one of the lower studs and most of the oil will drain out.

Actually, I replaced one of the lower studs with a bolt. It makes for a slow drain but it works.

Try replacing another one for faster drainage, either another bottom one or try one top one to eliminate the anti-syphon going on inside.
Nice job BTW.

Truck specs:2001 D-cab Taco with solid axle conversion, front and rear 65" wide Diamond axles, Tundra 8 inch rear w/ARB, H.P. front w/ARB 30 spline Long's, full floating rear from FROR and blah blah blah, IE lots-a cool stuff.
