    Nice man. If youre dad gives you the ok..... JUMP all over those HL. (that smiley cracks me up everytime)

    My dad needs to be like your dad. My dad has to argue about what im going to do, but sometimes my dad lets me in a matter of 10 min - a day. Depends on how big it is

    My Dad can be like your dad when it comes to price stuff for my truck and if he see's it as a pointless thing for my truck... if i pay for the stuff my dads cool with it, sometimes he suggest stuff for me to get for my truck :D:goingcrazy::goingcrazy::goingcrazy::goingcrazy::goingcrazy: (just for you buddy lol, they make me laugh too)

    Thats the cool thing when my dad brought home my truck and said that "whatever your going to do with this truck.... If I think its nessecary i will pay half"

    My dad will get the mod bug before long. It takes time.

    tranny may be sealed....but it still needs the oil to be changed periodically...depending on how you drive/if you tow..etc. the dude is fulla shit that the diff is sealed. the diff oil needs to be changed every 15k to 30k.....again,depending on if you tow/how you drive. just do it man..............and swap over to synthetic.

    Yeah man I mean that was pretty nice of him. Who knows he might but a few down for the heck of it. I got to convince him not to get Duelers again though

    Uh I got soo much to do when my truck gets to me on April 27th. Spark plugs, diff(might do it this weekend), etc.

    Will you dont understand, Lents and I did not buy out truck ourselves, our dads payed for them (well for me but i dont know about Lents) and if we do something that they dont want us to do then we will get into some deep shit (atleast for me, not sure how Lents dad is)

    Being the father of two sons who went through a Ford Ranger, Celica GT, Chevy S-10, Super Charged GrandPrix, full size Chevy truck and a TC. What always drove me crazy and caused all the arguments were the things like how a K&N airfilter would add 15 HP or the CAI that would add 15% more HP. They installed 6 tipped spark plugs that were supposed to increase HP, the only thing it did do was turn on the check engine light. Give the old guys a break, a lot of us did some of the same or stupider things on our cars as a kid. That's where we learned some of this stuff is hype. I argued with my dad over the same things. I just didn't want them to waste their money on crap. Looking back, I should have just told them to go for it. I will bet the guy at the dealer is in fact wrong about the sealed differential. They are not for the most part mechanics, some of them have never turned a wrench. Approach your dad in a non-confrontational manner with the manual, "look pop's, it says here in the manual to change the fluid every 15,000 miles" or whatever, "looks like the guy you talked with was thinking of another model or year." Your dad, my dad, I thought, we were all giving good advise, you might do it too!
    Good luck.

    Thanks fletch:) That made me feel good about you being in the same postion as my dad and that you took it the same way as my dad.

    I told him a few minutes ago. Before he could say anything I told him I would talk to him in the morning.

    I thought in my mind "Who would you believe a guy that probbably has never turned a wrench (like what Will said) or your own son with the TW family behind his back and a tutorial telling you that you NEED to change it.
