R&P gear install ?

What else will I need besides the gears an install kit and lube to fill the axles back up? Any other seals or anything?

or better yet - a lubelocker gasket instead of RTV
worth the $20 if you ever have to open it back up
if you have a rubi - watch out for the locker plunger sensors!

I've got 74300m on the ticker right now so I'll probably go ahead and make sure I get seals. And I plan on taking pics and possibly time-lapse video

Front seals are not a bad idea but, can be a PITA if you don't have an install tool.

Plan on at least 10 hours per diff and have plenty of patience.....

If you can the best advice is to the get diffs at a good working height, either by a lift or pulling the axles. Laying on your back, hitting your head, and having your arms in a strain do not help the patience part.
