I see a lot of muddy trucks running around but I bet they are farmers or friends of such.
Its not from water damage. I honestly thing the housing is bent and I know the inner bearings are toast. When I connect the driveshaft the diff growls pretty badly, I know it's not the u-joints or T-case either. The PO did some dumb **** to it before I bought it so there is no telling what happened with it.
I registered on that NM website, there seems to be some good stuff around, just have to drive.
I just put an offer in on a nice house with a 54'x45' barn, concrete floor and 20 acres. If I end up with it I'll be putting in a two post lift. I have a lot of tools already, just need a place to work on junk.
How much of a lift do you have? Slip yoke eliminator? CV driveshaft? Do you have adj control arms in the rear?
