    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.

    Heck, some of that "snake oil" gear lube will solve all of that. Runs cooler, quieter and longer
