Just to add to this thread for future people.
I just changed both F/R at 20500 miles. Normal metal mud on the magnets and both oils looked fine. Honey in the front and a little more brownish in the rear. Since I tow a camper near max spec I went with Valvoline syn 75/140 in the rear. I did...
I feel like your slipping the clutch even more if your trying to take off without giving it gas. I’m pretty much always pushing the throttle when I take off, just not very much.
the faster you can get the clutch engaged the less slipping and consequently less wear and tear.
For my compressor I bought some sheathing to protect the wires then I just ran them along the passenger frame rail then up through the drain hole under the rear seat for my compressor. Cut the rubber sealing plug to act as a grommet. Works fine for me.
In heavy equipment an active regen will happen based on time since last regen as well as the normal for soot loading.

You need both a longer trac bar and drag link for the front and a longer trac bar for the rear.
the trac bars center your axle. By lifting the Jeep the distance from the Jeep frame to axle got farther away so the shorter stock bars pull the axles to the drivers side.

2wd, just the drag of the power train can be enough to cause one to loose traction, 4low enhances that. 4 low is great for holdback but that’s only if you have traction
Sliding the back 2 is better than all 4 because your wheels were all...
I’ve heard other countries have stricter towing laws as the reason. In the USA it’s kind of a run what ya brung type thing. I see people hauling trailers doing stupid fast speeds all the time, not hitched up right even though they have a WD hitch, all kinds of crazy stuff.
Blow by- small amounts always make it by the rings. Excessive active regens add up. Chevy had a real problem with this early on as all their dosing fuel was added from only the back 2 cylinders causing wash down. In their case it was wiping out the cylinders.
