|Bigman610||All Terrain TJ, do you simply remove the hose then pump it in? That's what it looks like in your photo, just wanted to be sure. Thanks for the help.|

My pinion angle is about 22° so I fill to the plug then add another half quart though the vent.
This was recommended by the driveline shop that rebuilt the axle. I haven't had any pinion bearing problems or burping lube from the vent

|Bigman610||That's my concern Jerry, I'm running a 3" long arm with a 1" body. I have a Tom Woods driveshaft but concerned that the angle of the pumpkin is different then stock not allowing to be filled properly.|

|Jerry Bransford||It is filled adequately if it is filled to the bottom of the fill hole if you are running OE driveshafts.|

I'm certainly not trying to overfill fill it, I've read several responses of guys dealing with that mess, just trying to get the recommended 2 quarts in.
My driveway sits at a pretty good slope to the street, so I pointed the front end downhill and pulled the rears up onto ramps. This set up allowed me to get an additional 8oz in, leaving me about 8oz shy of the full 2 quarts. Is this something I should leave well enough alone or be concerned that its not full to the recommended specs?

|Bigman610||She's still sitting on the ramps, I'll pull the fill plug and see if letting it sit for about 30 minutes makes a difference.|

|callbob||could be wrong here, but I've never filled a rear end past the fill plug. Did you give it time to disperse and settle?|

Fill differencial through vent port?
I have 2004 Rubicon with Dana 44's in which I'm changing the fluid. I had no problems with the front however I can only get about 1 1/2 quarts in the rear. I was wondering if it would be possible to put the remaining 16oz in via the vent port? I'm open to any suggestions. I tried putting the rear tires on ramps in an effort to change the angle of the fill hole but this didn't work.
