1. I did not quit cold turkey, but slowly weaned myself down over time. 1 week in at this point.
2. Symptoms so far have included grogginess and lethargy, as well as some headaches, most notably during day 2 last week. These I expected. As of day 3, the headache was gone.
3. Unexpected was the fact that around day 3, I started having a bit of difficulty sleeping. From day 4 to day 6, my Fitbit also noted a decrease in time spent in deep sleep. According to what I've been reading, that is a definite possibility in some cases - the body becomes very accustomed to caffeine and reacts strangely when deprived.
4. Last night, the trend reversed, and I spent 26% of my night in deep sleep, more than I've managed in the last 2 years (most of my nights are about 10% or less, one of the big reasons I'm stopping my caffeine intake).
5. I still get a bit groggy around 2 pm each day, and it does last for about an hour. Physical activity helps ease this (but unfortunately I worked a desk job).
6. Generally, I do feel more alert and spend less time stuck between feeling hyperactive and crashing. Things are at more of a steady even keel.
7. Hands have stopped shaking, muscles have stopped twitching. Expected this, but glad.
8. Thought process is less disrupted and better focused.

It's not all rosy. I miss my cups of coffee in the morning, and knowing that when the grogginess/lethargy sets in all I'd have to do is drink a cup of coffee - well, it's very tempting. But I'll stick it out and see what happens.
This concludes my update.

Regarding #5: I've altered my ingestion habits and now typically eat one meal a day. I still drink coffee in the morning and sometimes a piece of fruit, but after that, don't usually eat until dinner. Some call it intermittent fasting. It works wonders for me on a number of levels, including the 2 p.m. tired wave. It's not for everyone, but works great for me.

I'm familiar with intermittent fasting, lot of bodybuilders/power lifters use it to keep body fat down. I've never given that a serious shot, but interesting that you're seeing it prevent a crash around 2 pm. Thanks for the heads up!

JL, hey, what are the benefits of a diff cover if you dont track?

It looks nice under my car.

But seriously, I did it with future upgrades in mind, and the planned eventuality of tracking my vehicle. I just haven't made the track a priority yet.

Big advantage is after 60k miles, the stock VLSD tends to crap the bed for most people, partly due to heat and wear. The cover, from a combination of the aluminum fins and additional fluid, will help to reduce some of the wear on the VLSD.

I'll put it this way, Rusty's argument (which made a lot of sense) was that I was going to be in there anyway so I might as well do it all in one shot instead of repeating work (both the bushings and the diff cover require dropping the diff).

I have an open diff so it wouldnt apply? Another strike against.
But I cant argue with the thought process. I started with the bbk upgrade, now waiting on parts, then decided on getting camber arms while im down there... then noticed the bushing leak...soooo, while im down there...lol

I probably wouldn't do it for an open diff.
