    Only differences is all the TSB's should be done before you take delivery or if you are buying used, run the vin by the dealer and see what is outstanding. Lot's of info on here if you use the search function.

    Wasn't something done to help secure the reverse bucket (another bolt)?

    I thought I read that it could be mistaken.

    I'd wait and see if someone chimes in to correct me or confirm it. I Just read it last night here but not sure what thread that was in.

    I found it interesting because of the fears of a bucket fall at high speeds which can kill someone in the right circumstances.

    I thought I saw a video or two on rxt 300s dropping buckets randomly. I'm curious if it's isolated or not.

    Hey I found where I read this and I was mistaken. It's a post from Dinomite talking about the IBR bucket on the 300's (all of them /// not a change from 16 to 17). So you should already have this on your 300.

    Sorry for the confusion.
