Did you have any shavings in the oil? That'd be an indication of whether something wasn't right or not.

the fluid was fairley dirty for just putting it in a couple days ago. worse then i expected. although the axle has been sitting for a LONG time. its all flushed now tho

i got someone to hop in my truck when i put it in the air. the whole dam axle twist. i feel like i just gonna rip the u bolts right off. they are plenty tight so i donno. ladder bars maybe...
well i got it all back together and it still does it. o well
i no the gears and everything is set up right tho so i guess it was worth it. im just gonna keep driving it till it breaks i guess.

no shavings kyle. i checked for that first. no bad wear marks on the gears either.

THE LOCKER IS FINE. you will break an axle shaft before you break the locker.

trying to find a trailer for a full size axle sucks.
i have one i can use but its onlu 77in wide. its gonna be very close fit. i need to remeasure my tire width. i think im at 77 exactly. how wide is ur trailer zach?

you always drive on right? backing on will put most the weight in the rear which is not good correct?
