Well Jeep beach is off as of now. Blew up the t-case on the highway today. Front drive shaft pole vaulted into the road and cracked the case in half. The search is on for a new NP231. Hopefully we will still be able to make it to Daytona but time and money are tight.

Sourced a t-case and new input shaft thanks to some awesome forum members. Looking for a front drive shaft now.

Happy Easter everyone. I'll be going out to try and locate a T-Case this week. Jeep beach looks to be off the table at this point unfortunately. I definitely need to get this thing back on the road though.

I'm still not exactly sure where the failure came from. No broken ujoints however the straps holding them in failed catastrophically.

And Sparrows I did get the input. Thanks.

I had this happen to me on the tcase side. It ended up being u joint straps not being toughened properly.

When I was at tarheel 4wd they had a couple of used t-cases sitting out for sale. I didn't see which ones they were though. Couldn't hurt to call them.
