    Ok so I did a big no no but it was fun.... :haha:


    we cut down trees in my yard.. well the bucket truck.. international 4300 with a 90' boom sunk in my yard... so they said.. try and pull it out... I laughed..... as I know I cant as that truck is too heavy....

    well I dont have a rear receiver so I am definitely not gonna pull on my winch to him... nothing to anchor to so didnt use the winch...



    well I hooked up my 40' military strap to one of his tow hooks....and to my front tow hooks.... I backed up in 4low into the street...... yeah I know.. poor ring and pinion.... hell poor detroits too but they like it nasty... :bow:

    well needless to say.. I have had a lot of stuff going on like surgeries, new baby, tree cutting, trown out back, etc.... so I havent got to try out my new motor parts...


    well I roasted my tires in reverse.... all 4 so I got power..... but couldnt budge the dagon truck......

    well I cant get it out of 4low now... I backup a few feet and the shifter wont come out.... drive forward and still wont come out... any ideas?

    I know this isnt rocket science but i know the np205's can be a pain in the arse.... :p:

    Did you unlock the hubs and then try to get it out of Low? If not they could be holding a bind on the gears or maybe it is a bent shift fork. I know not really much help eh?

    Unlock the hubs, put it in low gear, drive forward on hard ground up to 10-15 mph or so (until it tachs around 2500 rpm), then let off the gas and while the drivetrain is under backlash, push the t-case shifter forward.

    Works every time for me.

    Oh, and make sure your fluid is topped up.

    Yeah, yeah... backwards, forwards... you knew what I meant.
