@jondilly1974 ya just ordered mine from China so maybe middle of October will show up? Guess first one to get it updates the other?
Mine said shipping from USA, then I realize they just order it from China and then have someone forward it to me from WA state when it arrives. Thinking of canceling the order.

@NewSensei, Thanks for the info, sure the adjustments will come with more time and more driving the truck. What pinion you running, and what fluids front and back with the earplugs in center? You get high motor temps fast or are you running a fan? Sorry so many questions lol
I have stock fluids front and back. 13t pinion during summer heat and now that it's cooling off I'll be putting the 16t back in ;)

I was getting high motor temps, especially during the summer here in Texas, so I added a heatsync, fans and an edf. The edf alone made a HUGE difference moving air through the cabin. Motor was hitting 200°f before the edf and hottest it's gotten since putting it in is 145°f. Here are some of the things I did with mine:

Well I'll let you know if it's worth a $hit when ever mine arrives, hear it's not bad and just about anything is an upgrade over stock radio

Got heatsink and dual motor fans put on, last bearings installed in steering housing and on front input shaft. Replaced front diff ring gear again and added another shim to gear side feels nice and smooth now have to see how it holds up.
