not to add more fuel to the fire, but I would change the diff cover to something like this:



http://www.stage3motorsports.com/46-...over-9-25.html

it looks cool, has a peep hole to view the fluid, and can easily drain/fill for future purposes

I just installed an eaton true trac with 4.1 yukon gears this past weekend in my F150 SCREW 4x4. (9.75" diff) so far so good. no shudder but only 50 miles on it so far, only time will tell. Good luck on your install.

Actually I bought it locally from the auction. Low miles, in beutiful shape. The Japanese buy american cars and trucks as "luxury imports" and then drive them like classic cars. IE: 3~5k miles a year average.

My truck had 45k miles on it when I bought it of which according to the carfax report, 29k miles was by the original owner (a company in the northwest) and then was sold at the aucitons in the states. it then later popped up again in 2009 on carfax with 36k miles when some other american saw it at the tokyo auction, ran a carfax, but did not buy it due to price. I picked it up for 12k with 0 damage and 45k miles as the 3rd owner in japan, fourth owner total.
