I used C&M Gearworks in Springfield, Mo. Right at $2,000.00 including hotel. They were 3 hrs. from me and are an AAM supplier!!

Definitely need all that gear with the toy hauler and 35’s but when unloaded on the 37’s it drops my engine rpm some on the highway when cruising to get slightly better mileage (maybe that’s just me thinking I am by turning less rpm, either way I feel better not turning over 2000 rpm when highway cruising). 4WP did the install and did a great job. Not a single bit of sound. Would recommend adding a finned diff cover (factory AAM style). Saw some very high temps with stock steel pan when towing 200+. 150 now with aluminum AAM cover and Amsoil severe gear [emoji106].

When I put in my finned cover....what torque number should i do? Reason I ask is the cover is made out of aluminum and don't want to crack it.

Thanks

don't know. It only shuddered when I towed the boat.







I had the shop add this when he checked the gears on 2 days ago.





Does it hold more fluid? I was under the impression it was the same capacity as the original


Correct, same capacity as stock steel cover.

[emoji115][emoji115][emoji115]ding ding ding winner! Whoa sorry guys didnít mean for that to get so convoluted. Absolutely saw rpm INCREASE going from 3.42 to 4.10 (with either tire setup) but now that gear swap is complete, I enjoy the DROP in rpm going from the 35ís to 37ís when Iím not towing.

SilverFox66 And I will give you one more chance.... he said he was ALREADY running those same 35 and 37 inch tires BEFORE the gear swap..... but didnt notice the rpm change till AFTER the gear drop, and directly related it to the gears Im well aware bigger tires turn less rpms, but he related the drop in rpms to changing gears, not changing tires If thats not what he meant, so be it... but thats what he said
