I’ve got a friend from Houston who just blew his front diff outside Breckenridge. He’s now in Breck at the Napa with his truck taken apart. Does anyone know where he could get his hands on, or have a 100 series front diff or ring/pinion? He’s at the start of a couple week wheeling trip so this suck for his plans. He’s a capable mechanic. Just needs the parts.

Hey Scott, what rear is the truck, or even better what gear ratio is it?

Just sent him a msg. I think he’s on stock gear ratio with a TJM locker. Confirming.

I’m guessing I might be able to get a stock carrier. I’m not sure if we have an ARB in stock. We definitely don’t have a tjm.

I’ll check.

Another option that I think would work is to pull the front DS and make a set of locking hubs work.potentially the easiest way to limp it home at least.

If you buddy needs help with anything I am in Breck and just seeing this. Have tools and a place to crash but not the parts he needs. Also if he needs a car to run around in he can borrow one of my trucks. 303-915-9528. Steve.

Hey sounds like he’s got a solid option in play.

Took me a minute to grasp that a friend and I were working on the same issue. Literally had 4 different people contact me about the same diff lol. As well as another contacting my friend.
