|This project started in spring 2016, I drove the truck from 120k-180k virtually problem free. I am a maintenance nut, so it bothers me that I could have prevented the ingress of water by being more diligent.
However, I've never set up a ring and pinion before, so I'm glad to get the chance to learn this dark art.
I love the 3.0 with the 5spd, use 93 octane to keep the pinging away, and change power steering and trans fluid regularly as well. It was a great truck and has pulled a trailer for a good portion of that time before the diff started to howl.
Anyone who has experience setting up 8.8 rears, I welcome your input. I have done all the reasearch and am prepared to dig in. More pics to come.
