    well i put the 14b in the jimmy tonight, and took the cover off the dead 10 bolt. my gov loc split completely in half. i just uploaded the pics to my web shots, so give it a little time and take a look. i have never seen a diff come apart like this in my life. do i get an award for the most F'd up gov loc? i like t shirts /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    <font color="green"> That's one roached carrier, but I think that zcarczar still has the title of Most Destroyed Gov-Loc. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif </font color>

    /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif So I guess you have a 10 bolt for sale in "pretty good shape" /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    You guys like this carnage? I think Jimmy and I hold the record for the most torn up 10 bolts ever.

    /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif I think it may have been from a couple neutral drops, a few smokey burnouts and more than its fair share of wide open throttle right hand turns. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    No way! That's TYPICAL 10-bolt Gov-lock failure /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    When I worked at a wrecking yard, we usually got all the rear-end cores back (and rebuilt them). Almost every 10-bolt Gov-lock was split in two. They were a real good money maker. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Man, I still don't know how you guys blow this stuff up...I ragged the hell out of my 30 spline gov-loc and it never gave me trouble until my pinion nut came off the pinion gear while I was driving...you'd figure I'd blow up a gov-loc before you guys, considering my beast weighs almost 7,000 lbs. Weird, I'll never understand it...CARNAGE!

    I have seen worse out of a 01 Silverado. When it came appart it ripped the bearing cap off one side and cracked the housing. THere was a 1/4 gap accross the top of the pumpkin /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    hey grim, look at my pics, it did tear out the bearing cap, sliced ther rear cover in 2 spots, and drove a spider gear out through the side of the case. usually the broken parts thing sucks, but i felt like it was x mas morning and i was 5 when i opened the cover on that diff. it was really KOOL /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif
