Rear End??

So, somehow I managed to break the pins that hold the center section to the axle housings, and it spun the entire center section up about 3". Does anyone know if I can buy the pins, or will I have to get then machined....Do not want to replace the entire rearend, my truck doesn't have that many miles and I think its fine, other than that

Oh well....just bought a new rearend. The new innovative x-race tune is hot, never heard of anyone breaking that!! 1 4wd boosted launch @ 15 PSI on 37's broke the driveshaft, LF U joint and spun the center section on the rear diff, and I broke my damn costas when I jumped under there to check it out! A very expensive mistake I will not do again!

Those are welds that hold the cast center section to the axle tubes. Big plug welds.

I would look into getting the tubes fully welded to the center section.

Also sounds like you are in bad need of a good set of traction/anti warp bars

Personally, I would have a hard time abusing my truck like that, then getting upset about it breaking. A popular saying around these forums - "You have to pay to play."

The only thing that going back to a dirtymax will help with is it won't have the power to do what you did to your Ford.

Lol!!!...my truck is not abused. I run Innovatives street tune every day and rarely ever turn it up. Im not selling the truck bc I raced someone and broke the rear end and driveshaft during a 4wd launch. I'm selling it because of the $250+ oil and filter changes, the radiator and EGR problems and the fact that the truck has not been reliable and it costs a small fortune to do any work on it if not under warranty. Trust me I know what "pay to play" means.

I think we just have different definitions for the term "abuse." I would certainly consider racing with boosted launches abusive, whether it was 1 time or 100 is irrelevant. Radiator and EGR issues are well documented and hopefully would be taken care of during the 100k warranty, but really the EGR should be deleted altogether. Going to other makers also won't get you away from emissions equipment. I will give you a pass though on the maintenance costs of these rigs, for general maintenance it does cost a small fortune compared to a gasser. Not to mention any heavy repair work.
