    I am going to be getting my brand new 14 Bolt from Bian sometime in the next couple of days. What is the proper break in procedure for new gears? What about the new drum brakes? Anyone got any tips? Thanks!

    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://randysringandpinion.com>http://randysringandpinion.com</A> Click on Gear Talk and then on New Gear Break In. You do it when the vehicle is unloaded and then you have to do it again the first time you tow something.

    If you didn't build it yourself, how can you call it yours.......?

    You should get repsonces from non needed to take it easily and don't let it get hot.
    You will have to be the judge, see if you can find out what happens in new vehicles ?
    Good luck
