    That didn't take long from the date of your last thread asking about T-case noises and bearing replacement Vibrations. And I can't say thats the first time I've seen carnage like that due to a low fluid level on these T-cases due to the pump rub issues they all seem to have.

    At least you now know for sure what needs replaced. :realmad:

    300K judging from his last thread JD. Surprised it went that long before the pump rub became a problem as far as running it low on fluid. Many trucks don't make it to 100K before it does.

    A pump rub kit should be on ANYONES upgrade list that runs one of these T-cases (01-up 2500/3500 GM) in order to prevent this kind of damage. Can't stress it enough. :nod:

    Get on that JD. It had 316,129 when I clunked in to the mechanic's this morning.

    I bought the truck about 10,000km ago and never really noticed the pump rub until a few weeks after owning it. I've been topping it up since but went to Muskoka for the weekend and out to Ajax to meet a client and it popped on the way home from ajax. I guess 6-700km without a top up at 100km/h+ speeds ran it dry and destroyed it.

    Its off the truck but the mechanic is having trouble finding a rear case half for it. My other choice is a used one for $1950 + install.

    If you care for it most definitly. Merchant has the kits here: Pump rub prevent kit

    $250 now or much much more later.Your choice. You do have to pull the T-case out to install the kit but it's not a tough job.

    I actually want to take my other truck to Merchants for a Suncoast tranny rebuild. I have talked to Eric before seems like a good guy. 6+ hour trip is the only problem, I can;t find a good tranny shop around here, that I trust.

    You could pull the trans out and ship it to them. Probably be cheaper than fuel. :(

    And Eric knows his stuff. :nod:

    I can pull it out myself, maybe this winter. My torque conveter doesn't seem to want to hook up anymore, so I thought I might as well build her up right while she's out.:drinkup:

    I took the DPF off and straight piped her. I gutted the air box and have a PPE Hot+2 running on level 5. I would like to do more to it but the tranny can't handle it, so there's no sense doing anymore. I try to stay off the D-Max sites because it puts way too many ideas into my head. I would really like to get into the 13's nothing crazy like some of the guys. Just something fast enough to get to church on time.:D

    You could buy a ton of truck goodies with the cash from the vette...

    Your mission JD if you choose to accept it is to convince the wife you don't need the Vette...and then convince her you need more truck parts.

    If we don't hear from you for a while..we'll assume you accepted the challenge...and failed. :D
