well changed the diff fluid after ~400 miles.

small ammount of very fine metal shavings, nothing alarming. just the stuff you see from bearings and gears seating.

refilled with some royal purple and will let it ride.

Ya'll are throwing down some miles on that poor thing! Glad to hear the diff is happy though.

I miss my truetrac, hoping the Eaton posi will make up for it. Be glad you're not changing gears, that crush sleeve is a beast.

i have put just over 11k miles on it since purchase.

that was the push to get another daily (for the girlfriend) so i could get my saturn back. truck gets 14-15mpg typically and 11ish when towing.

i had to do a new crush sleeve on the front diff. I made a tool (36" angle iron) that attaches to the yoke and then i used my big breaker bar to crush the sleeve and would do small ammounts then test pinion preload. it worked great.
