    Lining up the gasket was stupid, i did as was suggested end up using a little gasket goop to hold it in place. The son of a bitch was the 2 bolts that also hold brake lines (or whatever those are). For one i needed a longer bolt and for the other i had to trim down the "hanger" off the brake line to fit it on

    It snowed and my amzoil wasnt scheduled for delivery for a few days, went down to oreiley and got some of their gear oil. Just for temporary. It was such a pain pumping it in i dont know if i have it in me to do it again lol

    I think i will run the oreileys oil for a month or 2 to clean out in there then drain it and refill with the amsoil and put in my magnetic plug then

    I stole the fish pump brake bleeder idea for when I do this. May take a week with gear oil though...

    I put a B&M on the Crew Cab ~ 2 years ago. The 02 has a finned Aluminum cover. I've also been looking at options for the Escalade. I just received a Banks Dif cover for the Duramax less than a week ago. Next stop the polisher then the powder coat shop etc..

    those are nice for sure but I go with the cheapest legit option in the case of my tahoe. Make it better but don't go crazy haha

    The amzoil comes in a soft bag with a tip. I believe I will be able to get the bag up high enough to squeeze the oil in.
