No, haven't tested it yet. Pretty anxious to though. I might take a little trip this weekend near my house and give er a go.

Is there a break in period for those gears? Should I run it for a couple hundred miles then drain/re-fill with fresh oil?

Also, the fill plug is pretty low on that case. Barely fills up halfway. That ok?



Guess I better change my signature now ...Done

Half way is plenty. I used to fill mine until it ran out the fill hole. It was probably really overfilled a little.

That's what I did...but it was only a quart. Just didn't seem like much to me.

Hum. Better check that again. A quart used to be what we used before the oil used the tail housing of the tranny.

Ha. Thanks man. You were very helpful.

And yeah I kinda figured this is the "real" first step. But my truck is still too new to be banging around just yet. But I'm sure once I get that first big dent in the sheet metal....I won't be so gentle.

That being said...not sure I'll ever be able to hang with you guys.

Yeah I did the other night. Put another quart in her. Seems about right now. I'll keep my eye on it.

Thanks guys.

Nice and clean looking. Did you use a real boot under the trim or is that open

You mean around the two front shifters? Yes. There is a stock rubber (dual boot) cover I re- used that's under the trim.

I didn't mean it like that. What I should have said is now you're truck is going to be able to go a lot of places you yourself aren't comfortable going to yet. I say this because when I first started wheeling my 85 I was very uncomfortable going some of the places it was capable of going.

Until I started getting a feel for it I was rather timid behind the wheel. It took a few people on here and many hours behind the wheel until I realized what the truck was really capable of.

I know...I's just messin with ya. I'll still be timid for a while I'm sure. It's still my DD so I don't wanna destroy it too much just yet. But I plan on getting a company van that will get me to work and back soon. That'll be nice

Ha. I wondered who would be the first to mention that.

Nah...not sure I ever will, but...who knows.

Maybe once I get sick of destroying cv's and ball joints, but we'll see.

Ha. Chances are...I'll do the same. But it's definitely not in the near future. Those type of mods are gonna have to wait til I have a garage. And that's a few years away yet.

For the record...I'd love to SAS it. But it's just too early for that.
