Also if we put your xfer case in powr's jeep it would be like preserving it, or putting it in a museum. Not like he ever hits the trail anyways.
Thanks!

It is not the trail that I worry about when it comes to the way Powr drives. Lead foot in a lifted Jeep is not a recipe for longevity...

Trust me, that lead foot has gotten quite a bit lighter! I drive more like a normal person should. No quick shift attempts, no 80+ mph freeway trips, no taking corners hot, basically, no fun! Rofl.

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

Why'd you buy a jeep again? Sounds like this could be the solution...

Why not? My view is that anything that breaks is a time to upgrade. Engine blows...better engine, axles break....better axles...and so on.....

"If" I can get the race truck back together between tonight and tomorrow night could I swing by and grab the trailer tomorrow evening? I'd return it Thursday afternoon/eve.

Okay friends. I have decided i HAVE TO GET MY BRAKES WORKING. I'm not even trying to sound dramatic when I say it literally pains me every day that i cannot get this figured out.

I don't know what to do next.

Any suggestions?

Sell it? Fire? Target practice? Take it to midas? Have it stolen? Donate it? Recycle it? Part it out?

I think it's time to set up a sat garage session and everyone can put their heads together and figure it out.

Thanks, now I have that stupid slogan song in my head... And for the record... I do know something! 2+2=4!!!!! I also know class 9 buggies are not meant to fly like this. (class 9 is basically 100% stock VW swing axle rear suspension and beams up front with a bolt on race shock at most, probably 8-9" of travel at most as well)

Have you considered trying a brake pressure gauge too make sure that you are producing enough pressure?

I suggested that, but Marn doesn't want to do all these "extra things"

Marn, get a brake pressure gauge and I'll tell you what you need to do. It is actually pretty easy. That will tell us really good info about what's going on!!

Yep, no prob as long as I have it back Thursday night/Friday morning. I'm headed to Big Bear for some wheeling on Friday.
