You step on it hard, it should shoot up to the 2800 ish range. At idle after start its around 750, idle after warm is 475 to 500, and cruising seems to be 1500 to 2000. My autometer runs just like that so I am supper happy with it.

Since I wanted a third gauge and didnt need a trans temp for the zf6, got this one to sort of gauge how hard the truck is trying. Will be interesting to watch a real time accurate (not glow shift) reading while towing up a grade.
Awesome. I believe my pressures are around the same as yours. I'm super jelly about the ZF6 though. One day I will get my swap done so I'll have one lol

I've only owned the truck for a year and have not had it under any water. I'm pretty sure it's been in water at some point or something of that nature with the previous owner. I know that truck wasn't cared for with them.

The breather tube was intact, but it was a little brittle, so it could have had small holes in it. It will be replaced when I put it back in.

The pinion started making noise, so I knew those bearings went out and needed to be fixed. When I pulled the drive shaft off the first thing I noticed was that the pinion moved in and out about 3/16". I found that the nut backed out some. I also found a fair amount of metal shavings in the housing due to this mess.

Pretty much my entire tax refund is going into my rear-end
Nonetheless, it will all be new when I get it done.

The bed is a Millard 6in memory foam queen size that folds up into three sections but itís sewn to get so you donít slip into the fold sections. Off amazon for like 260$ or something

Nice, that's something I may look into for my weekend trips to the race track. I usually am only gone for a couple of days, so it sounds like a perfect setup.

I have my sleeping platform set up, nice 6in thick memory foam bed.

Next will be the solar set up. Just enough to charge a laptop, phones and very small devices. Little 100w Renogy panel, controller, 120amp hour agm battery and inverter, therford cassette portable toilet,
Pics?? Sounds like a new nice set-up

For the hpop, glow shift has a inline small harness that plugs into the sensor and stock harness with two wires coming off ready to be tapped so you don't modify the stock wiring at all. Autometer one? Na, instructions say to just solder them into the stock harness.
