    Ouch brother that sucks. I have a feeling my trans is about to give out transfer case is on its way too. Front end needs a overhaul rear end may go out and front diff needs work....might just stick it out till I leave and buy a new truck when I get out of boot camp

    It's cheaper to rebuild than to buy new...

    UPDATE!!!!

    Trucks going up on the lift this week, worked out a deal with a guy to rebuild my tranny even trade for a grand cherokee I had sitting in my warehouse! So hopefully within the next week or 2 my baby will be back on the road! Now future plans within 6 months: 7in suspension lift, 35-38in tires, Flares, roll pan, and possible an SS front bumper. still pricing it all out for best deals, might even paint my girl if its in the budget!!

    So pumped!

    AWESOME! I got mine rebuilt for the cost of my '94 Isuzu Trooper! LOL! Make sure your guy is going to use the upgraded parts in the valve body and definitely the sprag, since that is a weak point!

    I loved my Trooper and hated to see it go... I did have a chance to buy it back last year. It was beat pretty bad tho.

    I sure do miss him!

    Chilax, sounds like you got a good deal there. Good luck with your new born. You will figure out how to get him/her up there. The winch sound like a good idea, lol
