I've killed 3...
First one, had a bad u-joint in the rear driveshaft, had a vibration, that I couldn't find with the driveshaft in the truck, and finally killed the truck.
Second one, u-joints were ok, but I think that the bad u-joint (it was the rear) got the pinion bearings along with the transmission the first time around, another cracked case was the result of vibrations coming from the bad u-joints... pinion was pulling back in the housing and bouncing off of the carrier.
Third one was my own fault, didn't get the pinion torqued correctly when I put new bearings in, and those vibrations came back. Haven't torn it apart yet on this time, but I'm sure I need pinion bearings along with a transmission.
