    Well the chain will run you about $90. seals are pretty cheap from the right places like www.southerngear.com. Bearings rarely fail on these if they are still full time and have the proper oil (motor oil). If they are converted to part time the one bearing that gets lunched is the tail shaft bearing. Unless your haveing problems with the reduction box you can change the chain with the case still in the truck. Just need to put a jack stand under the booger and remove the cross member to get at the front output. Quite honestly unless you got a couple of buds to help pull that booger and lift it to a bench your might be better off leaving it in. Your back will deffinatly appreciate it. I have rigged a jig that I can bolt to the saddle of my jack to get it out but I have the mothers off all jacks. It is rated 6 tons weights about 200lb has a 6 ft long base made with 1/2 inch plate for the main body and has a 36 inch lift hight. It is about 40 years old. You would be hard pressed to find one that big that will reach up to that case. The case is so tall that even with a 4 inch lift I have to jack up the side of the truck to clear the frame with the jack all the way lowered..
