The problem rapidly escalated to struggling to find a place to stop and a flat bed home. I later had the same experience- completely normal for the first 30 minutes then becomes undrivable. The second time I let it cool for 3 hours and drove it home. I'm thinking a leaking transfer case or diffs but wanted to solicit some advise. Many thanks
Are there disc brakes on the front? If it does are the rotors puruplish-blue? Does it get worst each time you drive it? The brake calipers are junk.
