Re: 300G Snowplow ?

I think the pto t case (for sale recently) would be a must Already in stock, in my shop. It was the first accessory I bought for my G :D ...but I just don't have the time to find all the components to mate the PTO to anything. Winter is coming soon.

300G Snowplow ?

Is there a light or medium duty plow setup available for the G ? :shock: I will be moving to a house with a very long driveway, exiting onto a city plowed street (guaranteed snowbank) and we get a lot of snow here in the North East of the US.

VG80 Breather Bolt ...removable when in chassis ?

Does anyone know whether the VG80 remote breather banjo bolt can be removed with the TC still installed in the truck? Is there sufficient clearance to reach with the wrench and to withdraw the bolt?

Re: VG80 Shift Boot Install

WD40 did not go well when I tried it. Neither did silicone grease. The sun may be fine, but even with nearly boiling water it was not an easy on.

VG80 Shift Boot Install

I just installed a new VG80 Transfer Case shift boot 4602841097 (with the case out of the truck).

I have the belt just like the dog chew version in Vadim's photo. I'll take the the dog chew over the spilled spring any day. PM sent. Man...
