:word: tap your own drain plug :imo and add a magnet too .Some of those trucks do and some don't. The best way to see if you have one or not is to get under the truck.:lol:
If it doesn't have a drain plug, it's in your best interest to remove the cover to drain the oil. It would be tough to get all that oil out with a pump...not to mention the stuff left behind would likely be the nastiest stuff.
I thought about it but it was waaayyyyyyy down there:roflsquared: I actually wasn't positive where they put them on the newer GM trucks, I had heard stories of people changing their fluid multiple times before they figured out they had a plug. I guess I'll just have to check it out and see.Some of those trucks do and some don't. The best way to see if you have one or not is to get under the truck.:lol:
Just unbolt the cover, that way you can get all the metal shavings out.
where did you pick up stainless ones? i'm trying to figure out what size they are. i went and picked up some gold zinc ones from the hardware store but they were the wrong size.I changed the rear end fluid in my truck today and i also used RTV, works great. I also replaced the factory diff cover bolts with stainless ones. Looks sweet.
