    Default Sunday's Cranage



    Well, the results are in after everything settled down and symptoms stabilized after Sunday's fun. On the trail a number of people heard the bad noises coming from my front diff, those stopped. I had no power to the front diff, now I do. I don't understand the symptoms changing but everything is fine as long as I lock my center diff, unlocked I have nothing.

    Apparently I snapped the hub that holds AWD mode, in other words I blew my t-case. The good news is that I have one that I picked up last Spring when I punched a hole in my t-case not expecting my repair to last but it has.

    I now need to swap my current actuator to the to be installed t-case then swap the t-case for the one that failed.

    Could have been worse but I'll be disabled when it comes to the trails for a while until I get it done.

    So, having a spare at the ready somewhat balances out Friday the 13th?!

    EDIT: If you open the case, post up pix of the bits.

    Breakage always brings the suck. But at least you already have the spare. Sounds like a couple hours of labor and you will be back at it. Look at the bright side, it could have been a lot worse and a lot more expensive. Good luck with it!

    If it will help you...the car lift at my workshop is yours to use if you want it. Lifting a t-case down and installing a new one shouldn't be too hard. Let me know.

    Were you the Toyota recovery from SevenMile that was all over the Facebook groups? Sorry to hear of your misfortune. I always bring tools/spare shafts, but its not too practical to carry an extra transfer case, lol.

    Thanks folks, it's never fun to break something but it's my turn. Yes, it's good that I have a spare but that's all that's good about it.

    Josh, thanks for the offer I may take you up on it when the time comes.

    I'll post pics of the broken stuff when the time comes.

    As far as why it happened I know I'm hard on my truck when I need to be but probably more due to the 178,000 miles on it.

    It'll be a while before I get to it since I have more pressing things to take care of first.

    What does the mileage have to say about it. My Bronco has 256,000 miles on it.

    I guess it was a matter of time for that case. That wasn't any secret from your posting last year. I sure am impressed with how long it held up considering what it went through after being damaged. Too bad there isn't a readily available t-case upgrade for your 4Runner.

    I thought I'd have to replace it but my repair is still holding up. I didn't think the case would outlast the innards! The good news is that it's drivable as it sits but ...

    So, WE should get to a ?nearby? trail where you can skinny pedal the crap out of it and finish it off... I'll haul it out!

    Forgot to mention earlier that the title of your thread made me think maybe you had brain damage. The Cranium Carnage?
