    I think the garage gremlins snuck into your truck at the shop.

    @Professional Hand Model 's math is correct... 125 ft lbs. We're talking the front axle nut, right? The torque spec is something like 250 ft lbs, and you'll need more than that to loosen one. My guess would be about 400 - 500 ft lbs would do it.

    Put the wheel back on and get it off the jack/stands so the weight of the truck is holding the axle in place. Then use a breaker bar with a cheater pipe on the end. And make sure your pushing down rather than pulling up on the bar. That means on the passenger side, you'll be behind the front axle, on the driver's side, you'll be in front of the axle.

    It's interesting that we both get our trucks back from the shop and now have NEW issues we never previously had. That's not how it's supposed to work.

    Well changed my oil for the first time since owning it. Went smooth till I tried to install a fumoto valve. Damn previous owner cross threaded the drain plug so the fumoto wouldn’t fit. Had to reinstall the plug and will try to rethread at the next oil change.

    Also removed the skid plate to find only 4/5 bolts holding it on and all 4 were different sizes, lengths types of bolts. Left it off so I can install new bolts that match. Anyone know the skid plate bolt sizes?

    Like rolling thunder
    I trimmed the bumper back about 3 inches cause its bashed up and im planning on doing a tube one. And I trimmed the fender well back on the bottom rear a little. Im planning on grinding the pinch weld i just bashed over all the way down and just putting a bead along there for more clearance
    Plus a uca and new bilstiens are coming for an extra inch of lift in the front. I may flip the rear shackles for more lift in the read or be lazy and do lift blocks. Definitly will post up wich path i go

    Plus I'm an ofroader, wont the AAL stiffen up the rear?
    I don't mind squaring with load for work at all so its not a problem.

    I single AAL will.
    I have stock leafs with the overload removed and a 3 leaf progressive AAL with Bilstein 5160s and I've taken mine to a rocky off-road park. Had a blast with no issues.

    Electric impact guns will not budge that nut. Spend some time on craigslist or similar, you will find a decent air compressor and gun. I picked up a bostich gun and a small pancake compressor for $100, that had enough oomph to get that nut moved.

    I think the Milwaukee Fuel series would have done it. The Mid Torque model is rated at 450 ft lbs. He just didn't rent one with enough power and I didn't bother to check it at the time. I'm just helping him out and assumed he had done his research. He's more of a "wing it" guy and I'm not. I won't make that mistake again.

    "Delivering 450 ft-lbs Fastening torque and 600 ft-lbs Nut-Busting torque, the M18 FUEL Mid-Torque Impact Wrench is more powerful while also being up to 4" shorter and up to 2 lbs lighter than many competitive impact wrenches."

    Wow. You indicated in an earlier post, the cordless impact drivers have come a long way, and indeed they have. I have an air-impact gun and a compressor, so it's hard for me to justify the expense of cordless, but it's good to know they're a legit option these days.

    Thanks!

    Like he said that's the mid range too. They've got a 3/4" drive now that'll hit 1500 ft-lbs.

    My Milwaukee would probably handle the axle nut but would be hitting forever before it broke loose. I would save time by doing a pipe on a breaker bar and be done.

    Do you guys think plastidip would come off after being stepped on?

    I'd like to dip the entire rear bumper but I'm afraid it will peel off the plastic. If I only do the chrome I'll have 2 different shades of black since the plastic is faded.

    More than likely. Some Krylon Fusion would be a better choice I think.

    Rear Diff test this week seems to confirm 2 things:

    1) The 3oz. of CRC Posi-lube for LSD that I put in last week has eliminated the occasional low speed slight grumble from stop while making sharp turns. I’ve had both Mobil1 for LS (grumbly/no bueno) and switched to the much less expensive Lucas (dino) for LS (nice but time has shown it needs a little more fortification).

    2) My LSD works fine on the loose gravel as both rear wheels foot prints burned out equally.

    Moving on to the 4Hi test, I went into some grass and gunned the engine trying to get all fours to peel. The truck grabbed and torqued with no peel marks. The torque was amazing and she really squats into the power.
