trade you my prerunner parts for the 4x4 parts

But try ebay, it may take a little longer. Or try a local Foreign salvage yard. You can search inventory on one website for all local junkyards.

How the hell did it weld itself to the housing? If the bearing goes, it usually welds to the pinion, then disintegrates. It's one of those things you tend to notice before you f-up the case. What happened?

front end had a pretty good axle seal leak that I didnt notice cause I park in different parking spots at my apt. everyday so an oil spot is difficult to notice when you dont know what was there before, needless to say the common no oil due to new pinion angle the fabtech lift puts it at just got 10 times more likely to happen, which it did, so driving home during the icy weather here over a month ago in 4H at about 45mph heared a grinding noise for couple of seconds then the whole front of the truck noise dives, scared the piss out of me but thats when I noticed the leak ....no oil- means no lubrication- which leads to friction- and friction leads to lots of heat = a welder
