    How do you get the axles to release from the TC? I have sprayed them with WD40 and let it sit, then tried a hammer and bar to knock it back and it will not separate.

    Big ass sledge hammer and hit it close to where the bolts where . Drive shafts get stuck over time. Just don’t hit it right on the bolt ear , it may break

    So I should be able to see if a chain is broken in the hole? Also if so 4x4 high would still work? Just trying to understand how it all works

    Looks like a chain is still there I can't see any raw gears and didn't see any metal in fluid.

    Have to bash the dam thing with a hammer but you will damage it...... Test the rear driveshaft your description sounds like that broike the CV internals.

    From what I remember ( gen 1 really) the chain was only for the front... Not the rear.... ITs always turning but its not activated until you lock the front... The rear was a direct shaft through the T case.

    I knew it wasn't the T case... the only good thing is the 3:55 v8 rear end is such a boat anchor that junk yards give them away as nobody wants them.... they all want the 3:73 v6 rear.... LOL.... So its an easy cheep repair.... Unless like me you upgrade gears and install a LSD... :)

    I plan on rebuilding the old 1 since they didn't want a core and put the LSD in it. Is it true also that the carrier bearing on the rear shaft can't be replaced? P/u part today about to tear it down and install. Praying I can get spare tire to come down after I had to go find 1 in junkyard out of a gen1. :cool:

    Well I turned but spare tire never moved so I moved forward. Old differential/carrier is out axles game me hell getting out but about 2 hours later they were out and plan to put it back together tomorrow. Not sure what is broken inside but I did here something rolling around.

    Ok keep us posted on the progress. Yes the driveshaft carrier is not serviceable.... you have to replace the whole shaft.... Some places have a trick to doing it but if you mess up the boot on the shaft your screwed.... Colorado drive shaft is the cheapest and good at $475 delivered.

    I put anti-seize on shaft connections to TC to make job easier in future and I will be buying a new rear shaft since they want like $600+ for a used one. Also have to start or search on spare tire removal since mine didn't budge and hopefully the tool from a Gen 1 works since mine was missing and had to get 1 from junkyard...
