    Just noticed a new leak from what I think is the t-case.
    What to do now? Can I do any damage just using 2x for now?

    Also, does anyone have advice about 33" tires with a 4-speed and 305 (I had someone tell me those size tires without gear swapping will burn my clutch out fast with a 305)?

    thanks

    My truck had 33's and 2.73:1 gears with a 4 speed manual when I bought it. I didn't burn my clutch at all, I just had to use my granny low as a first gear. 4th was like overdrive on the freeway![​IMG].

    The problem with the leak is you are probably leaking more while driving as the pressure builds up and the t-case starts to warm up. Use with caution until you can have it resealed. Check the fluid level a lot.
