    Oh what a good day.[​IMG] Took the truck to have the y-pipe fixed so I could put my front drive shaft back in. Get home put the shaft in and played in 4 wheel a little in the yard. Get done playing and parked the truck to get some stuff togeather before heading to work and walked up to the truck and see a drip comming from underneith. Crawl under it to discover the rear flange on the t-case is broke.[​IMG] $75 later and a new one should be here Monday. The part that sucks is I am converting from the 700/241 to a 400/205 in just a few weeks. I think it was cracked but not leaking till I played with it in 4 wheel but who knows, pretty bad if I am braking parts in the front yard.

    Well as a matter of fact it wound up being free to repair sorta. I went to work tonight and I got a $75 bonus from one of our field offices which will cover the cost. I guess I got lucky on this.
