So this guy I know followed the directions real well when they were in red, he however didn't follow the part about shifting the fork back after the install of the 3rd. What a dumbass he was.....

Thanks for the help!

Thanks for the great diy article. I plan on following it when I pull the trigger on a truetrac.

I have a question. Has anyone had any issue with their oem electronic (brake based) lsd after installing the truetrac?

I know my traction control gets lit off when I take some turns.

so coming from 75w-90 to 85w-140, are talking about a 1-2 mpg loss or 3+ mpg loss?

I was trying to install my powertrax locker today and these bolts were so hard that I couldn't continue any farther. The best I had was a cordless impact driver and it couldn't do the trick, I guess I'm gonna have to find someone with air tools!

Okay that makes the switch easy for me. I will do the same. What gears did you end up with and are you an Auto or Manual?

Edit: Never mind 4.56 and saw short throw upgrade! lol

I jumped on ECGS's group buy last summer, but didn't really have the funds to get them installed until December. So far, I'm happy with the switch. The power is back!! haha

Thanks a ton MonkeyProof for taking the time to make such a detailed write up, it was flawless and made this extremely simple. I got my 37's put on and felt like I was pulling a trailer bc of those tires; went with 4.88's from ECGS and it's a night and day difference in restored power. With your guide this install was actually quite an enjoyable task, thanks!
