That's what I said, they hold the cap on. The cap has the O-ring which is what seals it, and the center piece that is splined onto the axle shaft is pushed in and out (through springs) by the dial...

But most U-joints do come with 4 retaining clips, regardless of whether you are going to use U-bolts for two of the caps or not. There are applications where that U-joint goes that would require all...

The bolts hold the cap to the hub body. The hub body just slides into the splines, where it's held by the large retaining ring, and the bolts then keep the cap in place. So I don't think there's...

Dixie's pic above shows the areas of concern, and the worst of your pitting isn't in an area of concern.

The black where the inner bearing runs MIGHT be an issue, but as long as it's reasonably...

I've heard that even the seats don't fit in well, that they end up looking too big. But I'd sure like to see how they do fit, because I thought the seats in my '08 F-250 were way more comfortable...

I'm not sure what people mean by "ratchet". To me that means like back in the '70s when every time you went over a bump your seatbelt pulled another notch tighter until you either couldn't breathe...

I doubt the glow plugs make much difference once the engine is running. It might be a good idea to return the wiring to stock, but I don't think it will affect your warm-up time at all.

I always question the value of rant threads. Even more so when it's a 6 year old rant.

Depends on how you do it, and how you're going to use it. If you're going to put car brakes on a 3/4 ton truck and expect them to work like 1 ton brakes, then no, you are likely downgrading your...

The power locks shouldn't affect operating the lock in any other way, so there shouldn't be any benefit to bypassing them. Sounds like you need to replace the lock cylinder.

So the problem isn't in your t.case, driveshaft or diff. It's good to rule out the t.case and diff! So it sounds like most likely brakes, or possibly wheel bearings.

I'm guessing that when you...

Neither. It's the check valve in the rear FDM that keeps fuel from flowing to the rear when using the front tank.

Yes, you should be able to keep turning the driveshaft until you are bored with it. It shouldn't get to a point where it won't turn.
