New Carnage

Broke my transmission housing....



We did Die Trying near Montrose Co. Trail went pretty well, Corbin in his '98 Amigo broke a hub and only had to winch that time and once else. I actually managed to make everything with only a broken axleshaft, some new dents, and a broken fuel cap. I did winch around four times though. Driving back to town, my rear d/s got loose, so I stopped to tighten it and low and behold, the t'case moved independantly of the tranny. I had been fighting some vibes for 15 000 miles and think they finally killed it along with the torque and such from the trail ride. Fortunately found a used housing and wil get 'er back together shortly......

Also should have pictures of the trail ride sometime soon...

ramv,

did you have a "custom" tranny mount in your rig?

Nope. Engine and tranny are stock and right where they were from the factory (okay the tranny mount has been slightly bent) The housing cracked at the very back, actually in the OD unit where the t'case bolts on. (ie not between multiple mounts, but behind the last one) I have a very heavy t'case and d/s's compared to stock and I expect that along wiht some violent rear axle and d/s vibes lead to the demise of the case. New one is in and solved a couple of the vibe issues too, so I think we are good.....
