All is well. At least the problem was obvious. It appears I couldn't identify the difference between the outside of a front driveshaft and the outside of the slip yoke cover. When I sleeved the driveshaft, I did two plug welds over the slip yoke cover that penetrated into the splines.
The driveshaft didn't want to compress, thus pushing the transfer case off the tranny. Really stupid mistake . Oh well at least it's not a mystery. Bought the stronger AA adapter . Ready to wheel again. At least attempt to anyway.
At least there's a year between now and Moab to get some wheeling time in.
so let me get this straight, if I recall that day correctly.... You're saying you made it from camp to the parking lot, up trail 15, up Little School Bus then all the way around to the beginning of Rail Trail, then up 1/2 of RT on a driveshaft without any slip. Does that sound about right???
WOW. I would have never have bet that would be possible especially given that Little School Bus aint no joke.
EDIT - wait, we didn't do LSB that day, we ran it on Thursday.
Anyway, glad you found the issue. Now as for Hawk Pride in September...
