    01 4x4 burn with tow has a drain. May depend on which rear end you have.

    I finally got around to getting the Lubelocker gasket and changing the oil. I removed the spare to make it easier to see what I was doing. First I pressure washed around the area. I cleaned the cover surfaces very well and installed the Lubelocker and then 2+ containers of Kendall Syn Super Three Star 75W-90. Filled to about 1/2" below the fill hole. So far gasket and around the bolts are not leaking at all. Hard to notice any difference. However, I feel good knowing it is done and probably doesn't need to be redone for 5 years or more. I had the differential worked on a few months ago and I wanted to see if metal parts were collecting on the magnetic pad. There was very little there, so I am assuming nothing bad is happening - just normal wear.

    Are you sure it has the stock cover?

    I'm late to the party but this is an excellent write up. I may try this. I've got some slippage.
