Great truck. I had the first MT and added tons of GPM alluminum before I sold it. Drove it all year round.

I'm going to sound like a real newby (Which I am) trying to explain this... bare with me. I am working on the differentials right now on my truck, and I have them assembled, but when I go to spin them, they feel tight. I am not sure if this is normal or will they wear in? I have played with the shims and it did seem to help free them some what.

Any suggestions?
