I read somewhere that 4.56 were included with 4WD Pickups that came with 31's (I think it was called the 'Big Joe' package) which is tire code 9JG on the build plate on my 89 Pickup. I confirmed I have 4.56 gears with the technique shown here. Any Trooper from 88 to '97 will have the same 12 bolt 4.56. I just pulled a G80 third member out of a '94 Trooper but haven't installed it yet.Van said:You don't see these too often anymore.
You've got the 2.6 engine since I don't see the V6 emblems... might have been removed tho :? 4:30 gears IF 2.6... look under the hood on the firewall for the Service Parts ID Plate, will have "S7C"
I didn't know to do any of those things lol. We'll see what happens. Thanks for the info for when I have to go back and do it right.Tentin said:Yeah it fit right in with no issues, I just took note of how the old one was positioned with the jiggle pin and matched it when installing. The part number was Stant 13858 and the gasket that failed to seal without RTV was an APEX AWO2032. I applied it to both sides of the gasket, attached the housing finger tight, then fully tightened the next day.
FWIW, many of us learned that removing the bed is much easier. Mine, being converted to a dump bed was super easy. DennisTentin said:that was kind of a pain in the ---. I was expecting kind of like a classic two belts held up by four bolts, but was greeted by vertical and horizontal brackets that just seemed to not want to let the tank drop no matter how much I wiggled it and played with the angles.
