All dressed up and no where to go

So this morning I got all dressed and headed off to the Easter church surface. on my way, I pull away from a stop sign nice and easy, then BAM and the truck stops moving. After a while, I finally got it home and investigated the situation. I found that my transmission and transfer case decided to part company (pics below). The tail housing basically cracked in half. I am not sure what else is screwed up inside the tranny and transfer case Has this ever happened to anyone else? What do you guys think could have caused it?

Ya it would be real neat if the tranny and transfer case were fine, but I doubt that. It was weird, there was one bolt left keeping the transfer case from ending up on the ground. Anyone have any tricks for removing the 12mm 12-point bolts to pull the driveshafts? Them suckers are tight

Maybe 8 or 9 years of road salt in Wisconsin? You'd think it would be able to take a lot more of a beating than that though...I'm sure there are a lot of guys that will chime in that have 400,000 miles on their trucks that haven't seen anything like that...subscribed.

a long 12mm 12pt box wrench with a cheater pipe slid over it. and a prybar or large screwdriver jammed in the flange to keep it from turning on you.

seen this happen on F450-550s when the drivers run them 90mph down the highway in 4wd

Thanks Sinner, I actually bent my 12mm box end already. it's old, I will get a new one tomorrow and try again.

You make me wonder if my 4wd wasn't disengaging and I never noticed

snap on actually sells a specialty tool for removing ford driveshafts. its a 12 point shallow socket that swivels on about a 6inch extension for an impact gun. i bought it a few years ago from my tool guy and its worth every penny.

I have the short 3/8s swivel socket. I'm on my 3rd one. neither one will work for the front driveshaft transfer case flange on super duties.
