    I think that my truck being at the y2k5 meet is doomed ! I got the oil pressure back, I had to replace the crank! I got the rear 12 bolt fixed and the full floater kit on! Along with the wheel studes change out to 1/2 ones that were longer! To night I was going to replace an oil seal on the front axel shaft, what did I find teeth chiped off the ring gear 4 of them why I cant tell the wear patern is good the pinon gear is fine the back lash is good. The gear set is realy in good shape. I dont have the time to replace the set befor the run, I would like to just find a used ring gear to use for now if I could. I plan on rebuild the axel this fall useing a difrent housing which is one more reson not to do it now.

    Dont you need the ring and pinion cause they're worn in as a set? I'm not sure, but I think I can get you a ring gear just about free if that's not the case. Got a friend that runs jeeps and changes a lot of gears in their 44 axles, he's got 5 or 6 ring gears (mostly 3.73) with posi laying around the shop. I'll ask him if he'll part with one if it'll help ya out. Let me know.

    Yes you should but I will not spend the time to set up a new set in the axel thats in the truck. I'm think a mised matched set is better then onw with teeth that are chiped. If you can get the set thats fine but the rings fine to.
