Update this :pokinit: Ray
The transmission and transfer cases are and we're still as good as new, so was the clutch but, the newly rebuilt rear 3rd member came apart and ate up my brand new 4:88 ring gear.

It looked to me like the rebuilder forgot to use thread locker and the two large bolts backed out which allowed the whole side to unscrew then come away from the pinion gear enough to lose forward motion.
The next time something fails, I not saying anything until it is fixed.
It felt so catastrophically bad when it failed I assumed it was the transmission but, I learned a long time ago that when you assume you make an ass of u and me but, again I'm the only ass. My being a catastrophist gets me in to more dumb stuff than I can comfortably admit to but, there it is there.
fasterspider, now older and slower.
