    I want one of those trailers but I’d have to get it from an auction. Not paying those second hand prices.

    It looks like it can hold more weight than the truck, you should see the leaf pack!

    Randy. Apart from heating and cooling the diff, how long did the locker install take?

    Watched most of that video the other day and it seems like it shouldn’t take but a few hours.

    Sweet I like those old trailers I'd like to get one of the ones that's larger I think it's like 6x10 or something like that.
    Amen, some people think they are impossible to get, are worth more because military, or you have to be someone special to get them driving up the prices
    I saw a 5/4 ton chevy truck gor for close to 8g at an estate auction when you can get them from military auctions for under 2g

    Not taking that into account, I wanna say it took about 1 hour to get the 3rd member out of the truck, 2 hours to get it taken apart, 1 hour to get the locker correctly in in place of spider gears, 2 hours to get 3rd member back together, 1 hour to get it back in truck. It still took awhile but I wasn't in any rush. I was using a punch to label all the bolts like he did, and the ring gear bolts took forever. If I could redo it, I'd mark bolt and carrier in spot #1, and then use a piece of cardboard to keep them all in place in proper orientation. It would save like 30 minutes right there.

    edit: If I were you I'd start on a friday afternoon, get it torn down, get the locker in, bake the ring gear and get it back on with no bolts and let it cool overnight. Then saturday you can put it back together. That way you'll have sunday as an extra day to take care of anything that may go wrong and you're not missing work.

    There is a 6x10 up in VT I saw looking for mine back in October on Craigslist.
    I wish I could do that big but the trails....

    Longer trips, like if I ever do maob or something like that, I'll just go minimalist.

    Does the manual have all the stuff you need? Like oil, gasket silicone, etc? Haven’t really looked at it.

    Here's what you want for gear oil, 3 quarts of it

    https://www.amazon.com/Lucas-Oil-LU...id=1543781357&sr=8-2&keywords=85w140+gear+oil

    And I used RTV for my gasket.

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002UEN1U/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Only downside of RTV is you're supposed to let it cure for 24 hours before adding fluid. I failed to read the directions and waited like 1 hour, but I haven't had any leaks. You'll also need grease to hold the springs and shit in place while assembling. This is the grease I use for most everything (including winch rebuild) and also what I used for the locker assembly, though I'm sure any grease would do.

    But I like the idea of breaking it up into two days. Should be able to get it done after 5 on a Friday and then back in first thing the next morning.

    Maybe get it in this weekend. I’ve got something to do around 3:30 so that might be enough time.

    Good deal. Thanks! I’m pretty sure that’s the same grease the guy used. Doubt they are picky about which grease to use.

    If I can get the stuff I may try to get it started Friday.

    What's nice is once the 3rd member is out, all work can be done indoors so it doesn't matter if it gets dark or not.

    Not sure if I shared this tip but rather than remove the hard brake lines to slide the axles out, unbolt all brackets holding the hard line to the axle. Then pull the axle out and shove a 2x4 to hold it out. Do that on both sides and the 3rd member will come out. Saves from having to bleed the brakes.

    Edit: also you'll want crush washers for the drain and fill plug. Some people don't replace them but I always do. In my experience it leaks if I reuse them.

    Get an oil soluble grease. What Randy posted is good. You'll also want to change your gear oil probably about 5-10k after the install or shorter to get the grease out. It won't hurt anything if you don't but it will change the viscosity a little depending on how much you end up using. How much IDK would it hurt it to leave it in doubtful. Up to you but that's what I would do. Also is there any break in period where they suggest changing the fld after x amount of use.
