With this latest thread about rear axle shafts busting-

I have several questions:
in a tight 38mm split case-has anyone broken stuff inside?

Has anyone grenaded a late model tranny (post 8/80)?

With 60 rear axle conversions-has anyone broken a long side? (as it is longer, and produced with technology circa 1981 or newer-vs 1968 fine spline rear shafts which could be stuck in your 1981 FJ40....)

And what would you choose to be the ideal front axle set up-using common spares nothing that you could not get parts for in 3 years? (ala Warn BE kits)

(feel free to start indi threads on this stuff)

the only failures i've seen in split cases were due to high milage. idler gear bearings go bad and wipe out the shaft, bearings and idler gear(on the inner bearing surface). if you drive them too long like that they will wear through the hardening on the gear teeth and then you might as well junk 'em.
