I will do a write up and take pictures. I would be working on it now but the rear R&P is damaged. Nitro shipped me a new one today. I did order 2 additional crush sleeves for each axle just incase. So far here's my parts run down

1350- gears- 1350
90- Cheap break in oil- 90 bucks
205-Amsoil severe gear for after the 500 mile break in
15-Additional Crush Sleeves
230- Tools (press, calipers, bearing puller kit, Inchpound torque wrench.

Im right around 1900 now. Side note: I have Magtech covers that add to the oil quantity. 12 quarts front and rear for each gear change. Had I taken it to a shop I would have probably been 2600-3000. So im happy...


2013 Mega Laramine longhorn. 6" BDS Long arm, 22" Hostages, 37x13.50 Nitto Ridge Grapplers, Fusion Bumpers, Back flip, AMP steps, Mag-Hytech, 4.30's, rough crunchy steering stabilizer, Thuren Track bar 1 Piece aluminum Driveshaft.... 3 previous cummins

The process isn’t hard. At all. I’m an average joe and none of it was rocket science. The only part I left out in my tutorial was pinion preload and ring backlash. All you gotta do is youtube those two processes to see how you measure pinion preload and ring backlash.

Aside from that my tutorial thread shows everything in detail from start to finish.

If you can change a tire, adjust valves, install studs, delete your truck, etc then you can do this. All it is simply is unbolting a bunch of parts and bolting them back up. No fabrication. No welding. The only precision work involved is preload and backlash. But if you know how to adjust valves and torque down your tires with a torque wrench then you can do it. It’s simply just another form of measuring, albeit super simple measuring.

Your write up was very good Nick. I didnt mean to come off as insulting or anything just wanted another view on it. Some say it's a bear to get everything correct others say it's easy. I'm sure I could handle it but I always second guess myself.
