I honestly don't remember. Are you referring to 65 MPH on the factory speedometer, or 65 MPH on the calibrated Ultragauge?

When Eric hooked up the compressor he had to disconect the battery so the gauge has to be re calibrated. When I finaly got to 65mph I noticed it read 2500 and in the LA area going 65 is not a normal speed more like 45-50 I looked at the rpm's a couple of times and when I got to go 65mph it read 2500 / 2600. If you check out GrimmJeeper it will show for a v6 auto trans around 2339rpm @70mph on 34.84" tires now that's not a $300.00 difference but it's the truth.

I am familiar with the entire rig and try to have as few people work on my rig as possible. You can be in this hobby and not be familiar with everything.
Ugh installing gears in that clamshell brings the suck. I did my 4.56s myself and there are several special tools required, include a special indicator just to read the backlash. What a PITA.

Well for those that didn't know I had a few issues with the swap. 1st the front diff breather was smashed during shipping. Ecgs sent a new one that same day. Looks like it might be a pain to get the old one out.

Then I didn't realize we had to swap the stub shaft in and that resulted in me not having the front tires functioning in 4wd. I wouldn't have figured it out had one of the guys that work at ecgs didn't browse the forums and happened to see my thread. I got the email a few days back that the part is on its way back to me. Sucks I have to drop the front diff again but I'll be happy to have 4wd again.

ECGS hands down has the best customer service I have dealt with.

The gear you see in the top center is the stub shaft. Pretty easy to miss if you are not really paying attention like I was.

So am I the only SOB that has not got his gears and lockers installed yet? My preferred technician is healing up from a hamstring injury, and with my truck getting a lousy 16.5MPG now, I hate to see what it gets with 4.56 gears..... 33" skinny tires on the truck.

I found it easier to disconnect them from the diff first. Then it took a couple whacks with the dead blow.
