    First time Merv owner

    Hi guys this is my first time on here so bare with me. I just bought a Merv yesterday and so far love it but of course want to do anything I can to improve it and make it last a long time. Is their any weak points or areas on the truck that I should watch that have a lot of problems or anything I should just be ready to replace cause its a weak point? I'm open for aftermarket suggestions that you guys all feel is a necessity. I hope this all makes sense and any suggestions would be great. Thanks

    it makes a tight contact between the diff ring, and pinion so it won't strip.

    Get every Performance Acsessory you can get your hands on for the MERV, and get some rocker bearings, steel hallow balls, and if you have the cash go Big block. (if you want to)
    And there he goes with the carbon...
