Pretty sure some of you folks have seen this already, but it is entertaining.

not sure i'd spend much time reading it all unless you've got a few minutes to kill.

I don't think there is much merit in what he is selling.

Maybe i'll get flamed for bringing the infection onto this board as well..

This was one of the reasons I was wanting to look in older books(Just have not made the time yet).
I have more than a couple of e-mails from him and Todd.

I will keep my personal comments out of general areas, but if you want to take this to a locked area, I will comment.

Thanks Brian:
I believe I have a line on a couple of real old ones to check something out, just need to make the time to get by their houses.

So, did I miss something from that Mud post? Is the whole purpose of switching lube types to ensure that the upper trunion bearing is properly lubed? Isn't that one of the least likely bearings to fail on the front axle? I guess I'm not getting the benefit of switching.

Uh, what? I don't understand any of what is going on there. Who is Backwoods Goop and Tranny Frank, and why do people care so much about the grease that goes in their birfs?

Good point. Although the trunion bearings fail pretty regularly in the mini truck world when people are running big tires and hard trails.

Also, am I wrong in going with whatever my owner's manual says to use for lubrication? I've never bothered to use anything else. FWIW, my wheel bearings have 301K on them.

I can't even understand that thread with flames and real info all mixed in. TF can't quote to save his life which makes reading it painful.

I dunno, MEH. I'm moving on with my life
