I always check mine before I put it in. I put it in a pot of water and watch it as the water starts to boil. As for installed, keep an eye on your temp gauge and it should be the same as before you replaced the thermostat.
Yes, highly suggest changing out all the hoses and HVAC couplings. May as well do the belts as well while your in there if they have not been done. 15yrs on them even if the mileage is low isn't a good thing. Not expensive.
AMSOIL Heavy-Duty Metal Protector is a great product to spray all over the underside of your truck to keep it looking good. It takes about 4 cans from what customers have told me to do a complete cover of the underside. Coverage may vary. Let me know if you are interested and I can get a quote on it delivered to your door.
Yes, 75w-90 is what you need and you will need 3qts. It will not take the whole three quarts. Fill it to the point that it is about a 1/4" below the fill port on the differential. No limited slip additive is needed. If you are interested in using AMSOIL and their new squeeze packs let me know. I can quote a cost delivered to your door for the three squeeze packs.
