    One thing I was going to ask is if you figured out a way to use the toe plates while on the turntables. It was annoying to get in the truck and move it back and forth to get the tire to move to remeasure toe.

    Hey Brett are these the part numbers you used for the rear oil seal and bearings? Doesn't look bad I'll just have to take the axle to a shop and get it pressed apart and re-pressed

    Yes. Nick's writeups are always spot on.

    Just note, you probably have the old style inner seals, and therefore the inner retainer ring will need to end up in a different place. If I were to have a shop press it togeather, I would ask that they leave the inner retainer ring as inboard as possible. Check how it rides on the seal, if you need to press it in more, a piece of 2" tubing can be used to tap it on fairly easily.

    Not looking to go down that route right now. I would also need a tune or an Accessport to make the swap.

    Thanks for the heads up though. :thumbsup:

    He has the access port but I understand not wanting to go down that rabbit hole

    Nope. Although I've had the displeasure of driving through Eastern WY more than once.

    Wyoming was exceptionally wyoming-esque with the wind and whatnot today.

    You have a twin somewhere in Colorado then. Topper may have been a little taller from what I could see at a quick glance, otherwise hc rear, jerry cans, snorkel, etc.

    I waved like a little girl thinking it was you but...
