While Terry and I spent mother's day weekend fishing the UPS guy was busy delivering goodies to my house.
I am going to start off with this truck with a clean slate.
The first thing I am doing is changing every fluid in the truck. It has 64,000 on it now and its due for a transmission fluid and filter change. Both fuel filters will be changed, transfer case and front and rear differential fluid and brake and power steering fluid as well.
I don't know what the maintenance has been like on this truck but if the air filter is any indication of everything else I making the right choice.

I will be curious as to the work involved in the trans service.  Mine is covered by lots of warranty for three years, and I have heard they are a pain in the back side to service.  But eventually I will have to do it.  Keep us updated as you do things it will be cool to watch it become yours.  Jason

I ordered the filters off Amazon 

 

Joe the transmission filter service requires lifting the transmission to access the rear row of bolts to remove the pan. Its crazy the transmission cross member would only need to be slightly trimmed to allow access to these bolts. With a brain and refill every 30k and filter every 60K thats a lot of work.

Hoss,

There is a thread on the TDR about modifying the cross member to allow access to that row of bolts.

That sounds like a dumb design.  Which engineer had his head up his ass while designing that one.    I guess if it's a 60K think I'm not ordering that filter yet.   Don't want to keep track of it for that long.

Multiple transmissions one crossmember makes for some issues. Some have had good luck with a wobbly 10mm 1/4 drive. I might give it a shot that way

those lil wobblies are a life saver sometimes , they are very thin walled also so care needs to be taken as to use / torque applied even if they are lifetime warrantied  LOL

I like the idea of replacing the hex head bolts with Allen cap bolts so you can use the Allen wrench to insert and start them. From what I’m reading, that seems to be the biggest issue.

My snap on guy loves replacing my 10mm wobble socket.

Keeps a couple on the truck just in case. I have two in my box, because I break them often enough that once a week replacement isnt enough.

Fuel filters and airbags go on tonight!
The gaskets for the front and rear differentials arrived so as soon as I get the amsoil for them I will get after that.
Still waiting on the transmission filter and fluid

We have members who are dealers , and you can also sign up as a dealer giving you dealer prices a full sign up or 6 month sign up for not much $$ will save you more that the sign up price if I remember correctly
