She made it.

Well my truck turned 100,000 miles sunday.. I have never owned a truck that has had over 50,000. So what are some things I need to look into repairing. I know I need to have the transmission Flushed, but should I also have my diffs changed also? What about ball Joints and U- Joints. Any help or tips are appreciated.
Thanks Shelby

Tires, brakes, tranny, diffs and gears, driveshafts, wheels, paint and a new interior!

Just messin' with ya. If the tranny hasn't been flushed in 30k or more definitely flush it. I would change out all the fluids including the brake fluid. That should be done every 2 years but most people never flush the brake system. Keep up with your routine maintenance. She's broke in now like SuperCruty says.

Check out my link for the trans fluid change.

Change your coolant. do a very good flush

changing the diff and transfercase fluid is a good idea. 75w-90 in the front diff, mercon V for the transfercase, 75w-145 for the rear diff.

flush the brake fluid and change pads.

OK I just got the phone with the dealership that has done all the work to my truck.. The trans and t-case I'm going to have them do so I know its done correct. But as far as the diff oil, How hard is that to do your self? what oil should I put in them?

IMO, the trans isn't a bad idea since the dealership can do a full flushing, just make certain they include new filters. The t-case is as simple as an oil change, literally pull a drain plug and then refill. The diffs you have to take off, but same idea as oil change, pull off the differental cover wait for it to drain, bead a gasket, bolt back on, and refill. All 3 are about a 1 or 2 on scale of 1-10.

I used Amsoil for my differentials and have been very pleased. I think it was 75w-90 in the front 4 quarts at about $10 per, and 75w-140 in the rear another 4 qts at roughly $12 per quart.
