How many miles do you have on the new gears?

Just look for a plug in the casting that has a 3/8 square hole. Stick a 3/8" socket extension in it and check the oil level.

Little over 500
If you've got a little over 500 miles on the new gears it's time to change the fluid. You can check your ring & pinion at that time. Don't forget to use a good quality diff fluid like Amsoil Severe Gear.

Or any NAME BRAND gear oil. OP, I am in a good mood so I won't flame you for a question that can be answered by simply looking under your truck.:ninja:

The fill plug is on the passenger side and used a 3/8" drive rachet like maXXis said. Use a 3" extension to make removal and installation a little easier. DO NOT overtighten the plug.
