    *3 Pics below from the rear diff. Front diff and Transfer case oil was not bad at all compared to rear diff.

    1st gear oil change was done after only about 250 miles (Free at the shop) (around 36,719 miles on the truck 10/28/20).

    2nd gear oil change done after around 4896 miles since the 1st oil change. (Around 41615 miles on the truck currently 9/27/20)

    A bunch a cool stickers, a bada ass MetalMiller Tx Longhorns grill emblem painted Hemi Orange, JBA long tube headers with o2 sims, Diff breather mod, Red LED interior lights, Fancy head unit that plays ipod n movies, Also DIY install factory stuff like, factory cruise control, factory intermittent wipers, OME nitro struts with 886x springs and toy tec top plate, JBA high caster UCA's for better alignmnet and dey beefier too, Old Man Emu Dakar leaf springs in da rear with the gear, U bolt flipper, Ivan Stewart TRD rims with 33" K Bro 2's, some bad ass weather tech floor liners so I don't muck up my interior, an ATO shackle flipper for mo travel in da rear wit the gear, also super shiny Fox 2.0 shocks back there too, all sorts of steal armor for bouncing off of the rocks like demello sliders, AP front skid, trans skid, n transfer skid, demello gas tank skid, and a tough as nails ARB bumper with warn 8k winch, I'm sure there's more

    Rear diff turns 100% of the time while driving, front diff turn 0% of the time while driving unless 4wd is engaged. That is your difference.

    Ok, stupid question perhaps. I looked over the thread and my question is about towing only. Completely stock 2020 OR, would either gears (4.88 or 5.29's) improve towing a trailer? Especially for uphills on pavement. Any help would be appreciated and thanks.

    If you are completely stock, and plan to stay mostly that way, do not get 5.29s, you will regret it. 4.88s would be fine and help towing(5.29s would help towing too, but suck when you're not).

    If you're at the stock tire size, you'd be aggressively over geared. I have 5.29s with skinny 33s and I feel slightly over geared.
