In every day, stop and go, traffic I donít see much improvement. But when I really need to step on the breaks the difference is huge :o.

Major difference while towing.

Did that 4 or 5 years ago. Had to rebuild it again 3 months ago due to  differential bearing issue and put all new parts in it, but reused the Trutrack. They are bullet proof.

Ah.... we are getting our first real snow and my first chance to really try out 4x4 on my 2002 Av.  Superb, just superb.  I'm not sure when and why to go straight 4WD versus auto-4WD, but I'll figure that out at some point.  Anyway, I'm driving back home, and went from Auto-4WD back to 2Hi because the roads were cleaned up... I did this at maybe 35 MPH, which should be no problem.  A few seconds later, there's this tremendous mechanical bang from the back of the truck, and I'm thinking.... what just broke? It was still driving ok, so I got home and...  it ended up being the tailgate falling open.  It's been icy and it must not have latched properly.

 You might want to check the latches. These tailgates are notorious for coming down I always keep mine locked.

You might want to check the latches. These tailgates are notorious for coming down I always keep mine locked.

My tailgate lock is another subject, it doesn't work right... when I first got the truck, the lock felt like I was bending something, so I got into the handle/lock area and applied some lube and worked everything loose.  It still doesn't feel like the lock is working right, and at one point, I had a lot of trouble unlocking it.  So, I am not comfortable with locking it right now.  I am quite sure if I searched the forum, I would find resources on this. 

The good news is that the tailgate has been really solid, if unlockable, for the 3 months I have had it, so I'm hoping.... see the day before it fell open, we had freezing rain, and I couldn't get it open afterwards, but I probably got it to where the ice was the only thing holding it shut.

I'm in Northern MN, and I'll probably be waiting until spring to work on the tailgate lock/handle.  Winter is my work season and I'll be in 60 hour workweeks soon.

Oil and filter change.

Front diff oil change.

Transfer case fluid change.

Everything is looking good.

No leaks or metal shavings to report.

Done.
