    I think that would depend on 1)How ofton are you using it 2) Where are you running it 3) How hard are you driving it!! 4) Is part of answer 2, are you running in sand, mud, dirt or grass!!! I would say that varies from owner to owner. I do mine about 2-4 times a year because I am not running in a lot of sand or mud!!

    The only reason that will force me to do a trip into the very center of the earth is changing the differentials oil just like I did a week ago.

    I guess there will be no bis for this year or at least one only around September.

    I do it as things break. Of I break an a-arm, i tear it down as far as I need to to fix it. A diff rebuild or replacement I tear it much further down and clean as I go. Come winter time, I will do a full and complete tear down and reall overhaul it.

    Same here, but more often if I get it really dirty.

    Never. I inspect after every bash and repair and clean what is needed then. If I do an upgrade I will clean and repair that area then, but I never do a complete tear down...call me lazy.

    I usually do it once a month also. Sometimes when I change diff oil I do the whole truck which is usually once a month. I try diff oil wts just to try them out.
    Easy on the throttle, then punch it!

    i LOVE aking things apart, but thats how you get stripd screws (i think)
    when i had the cheap rcs, i tryed out diffrent settings, but it cant handle all of it.

    +1 Good screws with quality drivers and you will not strip screws.

    I have been using Integy Ti-Ni hex-drivers since they came out, and they don't even show any signs of wear...kind of weird since they are Integy, but it's true!

    i have a 4-in-1 eagle racing hex tool, 1.5-3.0 mm.. and it works awesome, very good quality and all the different tips go inside one handle so it is very small for those of us with small tool boxes
