    Bolts...what bolts? Apparently mine werent torqued down good enough cause they all came out. I just tightened em and replaced a few about a month ago. Good thing I have a skid plate on it.

    I had the t case out 2 years ago and when I put it back together I used Loctite on all of the bolts.Im just glad I checked them before I got some major damage.
