    my bad, must be 91. I usually just fill up with regular so not sure what costco is selling for their premium fuel although I imagine they are all the same rating in CA

    yeah I've never seen anything higher than 91 in CA unless it's a racing gas station, but that stuff is leaded I believe.

    Tube was removed which took a decent amount of force. Going to try and get the CVs out tomorrow. Doubt anything is salvageable. If this tube were to be reused it would most likely require another $150 shaft. Every spec of dirt that comes out of this diff can be picked up with a magnet.

    Yea that seems about right. Not cause of the weight but also it is effectively a wall your truck has to push through the air lol

    I would think it's more the weight really...I mean it doesn't cover much more surface area than the stock bumper does. Weight wise though it's a helluva lot heavier

    yeah that stuff doesn't really do anything unless you add a bunch of them to the tank, those are largely a ripoff. There are some legit ones but they're hard to find in stores, better to get online

    yes
    I don't see anything preventing it from being reused after being hit with a wire brush. How are the bearings?

    hence why I added 'not', had to add in a little laugh. at least for me. :rofl:

    Someone once told me long ago that all those oil additives that were touted as the best (example: slick50) and all the fuel additives 99% window dressing and if anything, your engine would come to depend on them being used. No thanks.

    Yea especially after a winch. I didn't think the bumper was all that heavy. until I added additional 80-100 pounds to it then it got heavy. Now it's a w"did I do this" weight but damn they are worth it when you need it.

    yes, agreed.

    Although, Mr. ASE Master Mechanic neighbor tells me that most over the counter fuel injector product at autozone, pep boys, etc. doesn't do much for cleaning. Apparently there is some industrial grade stuff to use. I'll have to ask him what it is next time I talk to him.

    Speaking of bumpers, do you have any suggestions regarding those 3 bolts on each rail that hold the bumper to the mount? Those 3 bolts screw into this damn nut that has clips on it which holds it in place. When I picked up my bumper from 2beers, he had a hell of a time getting them put on. In fact, that was the area we spent the most time on. If one of those nuts gets knocked out of place and drops while trying to get the bolt in, to fish it out the whole damn bumper needs to come off. PITA. I think we ended up using painters tape to 'hold' the nut in place while threading the bolt in. :goingcrazy:

    Main reason why I haven't removed it yet to mount the transmission cooler is I don't want to hassle with them. hahaha

    Won't know about the bearing until I can pull the CV out. Then I'll split the diff and post the carnage. You know. The previous owner driving the truck on the highway dry of gear oil stuck in 4Lo.
    That's what I was thinking. I remember my double cab's tube shaft looking a lot nicer than this. But the dirt and rust might make it look worse than it is.

    My arb wasn't that bad if I remember correctly lol. But I only had a winch to install since I got a manual transmission.
