How many miles, or how long after you get the truetrac installed do you have to change the oil again, or you dont really have to?
Thanks for any advice

The Truetrac owners manual says after 500 miles. I'm glad I did mine, as some RTV Sealant had settled into the bottom, and came out easily when I changed fluids. I wouldn't want that mixing with my Gears for a long term. I did not feel any metal fines, but it is a good practce to follow anyway.

Some complain about the cost of the fluid as being a reason to not change the oil; I think that is bogus. I just spent 900-1000 to get this done, I'm not holding back on another 45 bucks, I want to ensure it last. I'll change it again at 60K.

Guess I should have read the owners manual before my install shop lost it. Thanks, I didnt know about the 500 mile thing. BTW, after the tt install and mag-hytech diff cover/temp gauge install the hottest I have gotten the diff temp is 115 degrees! Love this set up!

Wow! That is even lower than I thought it would be. 115 is pretty good. I wanted a MagHytec for the temp probe, but got a good price on the Stillen cover. Still may modify to hold a probe someday.

I just drained my diff fluid tonite after the trutrac, and i have to agree that it was kinda gunky for only having 500-600 miles on it. Glad i read this post. :cheers:

On the temp probe, i too run the Stillen diff cover and like the idea of it even though i dont tow. LOL How can it be done?
