Yellowranger1's Blue Wagon

Postby yellowranger1 » Fri Mar 31, 2017 1:12 pm

Thanks, it was a great time, hoping to be back out in the trails next week...

Truck hit 12,000 mi, and I decided to try this stuff and an ea filter since it seems to have solid reviews by many on here. Ticking on initial startup seems to be gone, so I'm happy about that.

I think next big service item will be new diff fluid. I've seen anywhere from 15-20mi recommended for diff service, what seems to be the general consensus? I figure it can't hurt to do it a little early since it has seen a bit of use in 4x4, might relocate the breathers while I'm at it as well.

I've been running amsoil severe gear in both diffs for the last 200k km. I've changed the rear twice and the front once. I check the oil every 20k km and the rear was changed at 90k km and I did the front change at 150k km.

I've done my front and rear diffs every 25k miles. I did my last one about 15k miles ago at 50k.

Cool, sounds like I have some miles left before spending the money on gear oil. Maybe I'll do diff covers when it comes time for oil.

Speaking of diff covers, I bought these from SOLID a while back, turns out they don't fit my truck. My mistake, didn't verify before purchasing and didn't realize until a few months later. Going to put them up in the classifieds if anyone is interested. Supposed to fit AAM 9.25 and 11.5, I'll make sure they fit the '13 and down trucks today. I can check on my dads 3500.

I changed my diff fluid at 5k miles when I installed filter mags. I thought it was important to get the mags installed because of the locker magnets and their tendency to fill with metal shavings. I have also hear of trucks delivering to end users with milky diff fluid so it all worked together. The next service will be in 30k miles.

Thanks a lot!

We're thoroughly enjoying this truck, and it's only going to get better down the road! As much as I don't want to lift it, I'm considering bolting on a Thuren kit to gain some much needed up travel in front, it would make a huge difference in the desert with unexpected bumps and washouts. This coupled with some real shocks will transform this truck into a real beast. Those upgrades will wait until later in the year though, got a long list of house mods to knock out first...

I finally got my Baja Designs S2 sport lights for the bed rack, until now I had been using some of the S2 pros I had off of my Ranger, they were driving pattern and way too focused for camp/area lighting. New lights are the work/scene pattern, plenty of projection and a nice smooth spread.

Gives you an idea of output

Aside from putting more miles on the truck only a couple of small updates to report - had a Magnaflow put on it, sounds like a real truck now and not obnoxious inside. Also picked up a Carli diff guard for the front and bolted it up tonight. Very nice piece, took my time with install, carefully rear through the 2 lines of directions, even stopped to grab a cold one out of the fridge, total install time was about 6minutes LOL super easy peace of mind upgrade. I wish they made a rear guard! Working on peeling my oem cover up on rocks [emoji53]

I was happy to see the logo was just a decal, stealth mode!
