So major plot twist with my truck preparations…… having spent my entire career in industrial Maintenace I have learned that there is a perfect time in a machines life cycle to do a preventive overhaul. I decided my transmission and transfer case were due. Mr Transmission in Brantford just happens to be owned/operated by my friend Des Ryan (Tracker1), so they are doing a once over of the drivetrain in my truck to make sure it is reliable for towing.

This was all planned and budgeted up front and I’m very happy that this work is being completed before “towing season”

Billet lock up torque converter,
Larger trans cooler
Case saver kit, chain, and rebuilt kit for the T case
Trans rebuild kit, plus towing shift kit, plus a couple other upgrades
U joints for the front drive shaft
Front and rear differential service

This is like a spa week for my truck!!!!

Truck update:

All back together for a weekend of test miles.

The rear end makes a small clunk when I shift to reverse so Des will take a look next week. (I assumed it was U joints but they are all good/new now)

I don’t expect a huge issue with the rear but am putting the time/money in up front to make a reliable heavy duty tow vehicle and the GT4, G80 9.5”? 14? bolt needs to be in very good condition.

Rear end freshened up and set up.

New bearings, seals, and set up.

Getting close now!!
