    You prolly know this all ready but 1/2 and 3/4 ton front ends are the same- cept one has 8 lugs. Your hubs messed up or you think it's the gears?

    yeah i have 8 lug front and rear end. i have no idea whether it's the gears or the hubs on the front that is broke. haven't took off the diff. cover yet. the rear i know for sure it's the spiders. but nothing else seems to be broke.

    unfortuantely yes. it was a river bank and the sand was just sittin on top of the rock underneath. it did good til it hit the hard stuff. i always had problems with the rear end leakin and didn't check it. but it still had enough in it when i pulled the pan. idk i was gettin on it pretty hard. i think it would have held up if i hadn't changed over to manual and 205. there's always a weak link
