My '08 Trac will hit 150k this week and I've changed the t-case lube every 30k since new. Also previously on a Ranger and another Trac that I didn't keep as long. Here is what I've learned. If you look carefully the manual will tell you to change it every 60k. However if you drain it at 30k...
Got myself a present for passing my national board exams a few months ago. AFAIK the only lift kit for '05-'10 Explorers and '07-'10 Sport Tracs. Truxxx makes a nice powder-coated strut spacer kit, 2.5" front and 1.5" rear. Cost about $230 and I paid about $200 to have it installed and an...

Just an FYI since I'm buying my second set.
Very quiet for an A/T, tread not especially aggressive, good in rain and snow, and last about 40,000 miles on the roads here, which is good for any tire. Also they don't cost a lot. Will go from Pittsburgh to Florida in a straight shot at +/- 80...
I note that Duluth Trading is now a TRS Sponsor. They have neat stuff.
As it happens, I just got this last week. The inside of my truck is much neater now.
