Has anyone felt the rear housing for heat on the Griz after a ride?, I put about 30 miles on my 04 yesterday, has about 400 miles on it, anyway when I got home I put my hand on the rear housing and it was to my suprise very warm, like you could touch it , but I couldn't keep my hand there for very long.
I switched mine over to synthetic lube in the rear differental for now and will switch the front over before winter, last ride I checked it several times and it was only warm to the touch, don't know if that is all due to the syn. lube or not may just have had to be broken in some. Will keep checking it as the summer goes along.
This is not an abnormal occurance. Have you guys ever felt the diff on your trucks after driving home from a ride? Some are warm and some will be hot where you can't touch them for very long. Depends on the load. Check it out.
