    Next time you go Muddin' think about this photo...

    This is from a buddies truck... 4 Wheel Parts installed this, beautiful... umm well, ARB locker... One thing that I can say for 4 Wheel Parts, they stood behind their work and replaced the whole thing under warranty. One thought that I had was the breather tube may not have been hooked back up properly - I've only done a remove and replace once on my front 3rd member and that bracket that holds the breather tube to the 3rd member was a bitch to reinstall.

    I'm glad I'm not him. At least it was under warranty. 4wheelparts doesn't seem to be very mechanically inclined. They just have good deals and parts...... Customer service and installation-Not so much.

    Kinda funny - good prices and they can afford to do 'come backs' for free - they must get the parts for free or something 'cause I don't see how they make any money doing 'free' work! :confused:

    Good point you just made.. I didn't think about that side of 4Wheelparts.

    They must get REALLY good deals. Or they could be a wholesale/clearance website. Like companies send them the older products that the companies have had in stock.

    That looks more like a pure lack of maintenance and diff oil.

    If the diff couldn't 'breathe' properly - pressure would build up inside and most likely blow a seal. With a blown seal, the oil will go bye-bye.
    If you're not watching for it.....all the oil will leak out and whaalaaa...Kaboom!!

    How long since he had it installed?

    And that doesn't matter if you're mudding, or wheelin or driving to work on pavement.
