    sounds good...i'll take off what i can and join in for as much of the trip as i can...hoping to have the rtt on by then and looking to spend some time in the mtns before the snow begins to pile up...

    figure some good fishing spots and some wheeling is what you're looking for?

    yea an 8.4 w/ an ARB i've heard is a good combo

    Ah yes forgot that you had Nitro's in there you should be much safer with those. It's strange but mine has been used a ton and seems to be bullet proof so far Maybe its because mine was one of the 1st trucks out of NUMI, who knows?

    Q: How Do I Break-In My New Gears

    New gear sets MUST be broken in correctly to prevent damage. Not following proper break-in procedures will lead to overloading and overheating the ring and pinion as well as breaking down and ruining the gear oil. Not following proper break-in procedures can be determined during inspection and will void the warranty.

    Please follow the below guidelines to ensure a proper break-in and long life of your gears.
    • Only use high quality gear oils. ECGS recommends Lucas non-synthetic 75-140 or 85-140
    • On initial run, drive lightly for 15 to 20 minutes then stop to allow differential to cool completely for 20 to 25 minutes.
    • Avoid towing and heavy acceleration, as well as vary speeds every 5 to 10 minutes while driving on highways.
    • Drive conservatively and do not drive more than 50 miles at a time without allowing a cool cycle during the first 500 miles following installation.
    • After completing initial break-in, change gear oil at 500 miles. Small metal particles are normal and gear oil will typically be black. Excessive metal in gear oil should be reviewed by a competent differential mechanic to ensure safety of internal parts.

    Post gear oil change and initial break-in: Towing.
    • First time towing should be limited to light load for no more than 15 miles, then allow differential to cool completely for 20 to 25 minutes.
    • Repeat this procedure for first 45 miles of towing for full break-in of gears for towing vehicles.

    PREMATURE OVERLOADING AND IMPROPER BREAK-IN WILL CAUSE GEAR OIL BREAKDOWN AND MAY RESULT IN RING AND PINION FAILURE VOIDING THE GEAR WARRANTY!
