Ok so I know it's been awhile. Truck sat a little during deployment. No biggie.
Belt tensioner was bad. Spring had slightly come unwound and pushed pullies out of square. $65 and a few minutes fixed that.
I know gear oil stinks. I've played in it before. My statements were more for is it a tranny issue or possibly a ring and pinion issue. So I'm upgrading to 4.56:1 anyway. I'll then easily discover if my tranny is being a ***** and slipping for everything.
One, 1!, guy was able to tell me what the popping sound was. Correct my terms if they're wrong, but the stabilizing bar behind the front axle has two vertical rods. They were ever so slightly loose. And so with a turn or bump, shifting of the cab, pop. Tightened em up and no more pop.
