Hey everyone. I have been gone for a month or so and I have been busy. Just pulled my jeep back out and I am swapping the transfer case. Here are some pics!

Yep. It exploded.

Finally got another transfercase in. My front diff is completely locked up right now so I pulled the shafts and left the unit bearings in. It is in RWD at the moment.

So I think what happened was that I pushed too much torque down to a locked diff and it cracked at the weakest point which is the transfer case that was still about -40 in temperature (my tyranny has a heater attached to it).

So so so happy to get my jeep back. Almost forgot how awesome my zj is.

Yep. This is what I get for driving around without the stub shaft in the unit bearing. I was hoping it will last me 48 hours before I will have time to fix it. It did not.

Good thing I have 3x spare hub assemblies lying around my room.

This one wasn't even bad luck. It was just my stupidity.
