Eco Box Road Duty Qs?

Hello Pirate,

I am interested in putting an eco box between an ax-15 and a ford 205 in my cherokee. Plan is superduty tons, 37-40 tires, stock 4.0

I am soon to be stepping up to a tow rig and trailer yada yada, but I still like to keep this rig dual purpose and drive on the road. What has been your experience with an eco box holding up to road duty including highway driving?

I plan on installing a sight tube so if the oil looks pretty dark I'll go ahead and change it. I ran a flipped dana 300 so I am already accustomed to the puking oil (have a breather catch can system).

Am i going to be clear of any issues?

TIA

Nick

I have a Behemoth box on my rig, but it is the exact same concept. I don't daily drive my rig, but I don't always trailer it either. I drive it to work occasionally which is a 50 mile round trip mostly interstate, and have driven it about 260 miles on the interstate in a single go. No fluid puking problems, and it is not noticeable at all in high range on the street.
In high range, it is essentially just an intermediate shaft supported with two bearings, so I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be fine in a daily driver as long as you keep the fluid filled to the correct height.

The planetary is just free spinning in high range with no load right?
