      Hey guys! I found out that explorers are still driveable for at least 10,000 miles with HALF OF A RING GEAR. Who knew!?

      Wow! Looks like something pretty darn solid bounced around in there. Gouged and dented carrier, a ton of shattered teeth.

      Anything of note in the debris pile?

      The root cause was a loose pinion which eventually sheard off at least one of the teeth first, then I believe it proceeded to eat itself.

      I was pleased to find that my locker was not harmed in any way.
