I could use some help

I was going down the road with my 08 f550 4x4 and the transfer case split in half!
I was doing 55 to 60mph on pavement in 2 wheel drive, hubs were unlocked and (bang) she split the front wheel drive half of the case right off.

The case is all manual and I didn't hit anything on the road. I pulled the case apart and everything on the inside is ok nothing is broke not even the chain. The rear axle and front axle are both ok

What could have caused this?

I don't want to take the new one out and I have a hard time marking this one up as a freak thing to happen!
Any help would be great
Thanks
Stan

Good fix would be to take it to the dealer, to bad the DPF and CAT are gutted.

DUDE... I've been around offroading for a few years and have never seen a t-case fail like that. I've seen chains break, output/ input shafts break, lots of yokes break, but never a case split in half like that. Looks like a great time for an Atlas t-case or maybe a 208/205 doubler, can't really think of anything else that could handle the power these truck make. And you were in 2WD when this happened?? Do you have the same size tires on the front and rear??

Even if that crap was still good the only thing the dealer could do for me is charge me alot of money. The thing (warranty) that says they will fix the thing that is broke and leave the problem that caused it has been gone for some time now.

Yes it was in 2WD when it went!
I did find that the CV joint on the front drive shaft took a sh-t. I am hoping that was the main cause of everyting.

I do have it back together and so far so good. Oh by the way the bad vibration that the guys driving it have been feeling and didn't feel the need to tell me about is now gone

seen it once before on a 08 F550, it had an overspeed code in it and i speculate the driver was going 80+mph while fully locked into 4wd

ford said they never saw it before but i know they were lying because i just got back from a class in where another tech was talking about one
