    I was about 10 ft. from my house and my pinion bearing pretty much blew up. It sent the spacer, bearing, and race out of the housing and my driveshaft luckily didn't come out of the transfercase. So i'm in the market for a corprate 14 bolt ff. Anyone have one??

    Fun, isn't it? Mine exploded at about 40 mph. My 35s stopped me from that speed in about 50 feet!!
