Help! Junk turbo, what to do?

So this week alone I have thrown $750 of my extremely limited budget at the truck and in the process of doing glow plugs I found this and believe it's junk because of it. IM trying to take the truck on a snowboarding trip next month and also need to have the front axle resealed what are your thoughts?

Search the local salvage yards for a turbo. And check shaft play so you dont get a bad one. The axle seal should be easy to fix, where is it leaking?

Well I figure with that big of chunks missing from the fins it can't be good. And from the passenger side axle tube.

Axle seal? Turbo seal or the axle ? Fins missing from intake side or exhaust side?

I thought u couldn't remove the housing with the turbo in the truck. Bu yes, u can just replace the wheel, just check for shaft play and if it's bad u wil has to pull the turbo and rebuild it. It's still useable as is, u can run it until u get some cash built up

I just got done with my turbo, its a little bit of a ***** to remove but the rebuild was cheap and simple. There is not a lot of parts inside of it. Check out diesel orings.com, they have all the parts you need.
