Been lurking for a couple of months, as I’ve been shopping. Joined a couple of weeks ago, as a purchase looked imminent. These (southern) trucks are hard to find in really good shape.

Chasing a whine that goes away when you let off the throttle. Pros, what’s. Your best guess? X-fer case, front diff., rear diff? Checking fluid levels this weekend.

Thanks for all the compliments, and in advance for technical help!

Yes Sanders. Front diff only had about 1/2 the lube it should have had. Looks like a slight leak at the right diff seal. Drained the last qt. out, refilled w/ Syn 75w90. No chunks, but lots of fuzz on the drain plug. After being full, about half the noise went away, but its gonna need some love in the near future!

Welcome and congrats!

 

I can see where that AWD would come in handy around TN if you're gonna drive it year-round.  I lived about 100 miles east of Memphis for a short while and y'all get just enough winter to make it count.

I have rebuilt my front diff twice.... still leaking. No noise. These front diffs were mainly never properly serviced which leads to these long term effects. I only have 88k.

Newbie question...What radio this this truck come with? Got a picture? Want to be on the look-out for one, to put-back to stock.

 

The pioneer is working very well, just want it original (or at least have an original on stand-by!).

 

Thanks in advance! You guys are a treasure trove of info!
