    This is one of those rules that doesn't make sense. Particularly when someone is trying to find a part.

    That being said, I assume ebay when someone says "popular auction site"

    i can't really see the particles on the magnet well enough in the video but if they are flakey im gonna guess you are loosing a bearing race, the surface is damaged and is coming up and being rolled flat by the bearing rollers, the rest of the bearings may or not survive ingesting the metal as it is circulated by the fluid, their races may look pitted slightly by the embedded metal particles, the gearset will likely be fine unless its run till the failed bearing has a major failure and comes apart loosing containment of either the pinion or carrier positioning, then the gears will loose alignment and eat one another.

    i don't have experience with a diff near that large so this is speculation based on upscaling 1/2 and 1 ton diff and transfer case failures

    Pretty good observation! I was stressed out about it until I drained all 3 diffs and all 3 had the exact same thing on the drain plugs. After talking to a few people familiar with these trucks they do have lockers and in the manual it clearly states ďDo not engage additional axles while spinning a tire, damage may occurĒ and thatís what we are theorizing has happened. Small chunks of the locker, I inspected the bearings with a snake camera they all look good from what I can see. Iíve changed the fluid and will keep a close eye on temperatures. Probably will run the fluid another 500 miles or more, then drop it and inspect it by running through the centrifuge to see what kind of wear particles are present

    it is normal for some metal bits on the magnet, ya gotta be able to read them, the small difference in temp at the rear diff could be it's just the last thing to receive airflow under the truck, shiney lube scares me a little though

    Such a good looking MTVR.

    I'm wondering if I'd hit height issues after putting a camper box on the back. What is the distance from the ground to the bed?

    Gave her **** at the Georgia Rally, rebuilt the compressor aftercooler and air dryer; crazy how much of an improvement these trucks are over the 5 tons. I put it through the worst I could for over 100 miles offroad this past week and I couldnít phase it, had some traction issues due to non-op ctis but after I aired down the truck was almost unstoppable.
