I've been using the 75-140 from walmart. When I first had my motor rebuilt I start babying it with fancy oil but since then I've switched to using cheaper stuff and changing it a lot. There seems to always be some reason for taking off a diff cover or swapping axles so it's always pretty clean. Same with motor oil. I probably change mine after ever 3-4 desert trips and it's pretty black, even though it's only probably been about 200 miles.

Clean oil is cheap insurance.

Black oil is not THAT bad. Is it GRITTY? That is when you have issues. I've put oil in cars and had it turn black after 2 minutes of running. Some oils just do that. Of course there is also the school of thought that it is picking up dirt left behind from the last oil. This 'discussion' can go on forever. I have had long talks with petroleum engineers and I'm STILL not positive what is the right answer. Like Jeff says, "clean oil is cheap insurance".

I'm sure the oil is chemically fine, but considering the talc like powder sand we run though I like to swap it often.

I'm thinking about adding an oil cooler and maybe a remote filter. I would like to get the filter up out of harms way since it hangs a little too close to rocks to suit me now. Plus if a motor mount fails the filter is done for.

Say it isn't so. Junior Seau died this morning.

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-sh...182120394.html

He was an incredible player and class act. He will be sorely missed.

can you take a right side front axle and flip it to be left side and high pinion, or will I have a front axle driving in reverse and a rear driving forward?

If anyone has the ability to remove a rounded out harmonic balancer bolt, and can make a house call, great appreciation would be granted

The welding idea tends to work the best on larger bolts but if you can't weld it, you could always drill a hole in the bolt, use pb blaster and an easy out on it....Marshalls Hardware will have everything you need to remove the bolt if you can't find it locally.
P.S. DON'T USE HARBOR FREIGHT EASY OUT'S..... They will make your problem worse....
