2 broken teeth on my 4.88 ring gear.
I'm new to this forum and have mainly just read other people posts to learn more about my 6.0 until now.
I was coming home from a camping trip this weekend towing my toyhauler that was about 11,000 lbs. and broke 2 teeth on my ring gear. My truck has quite a few mods on it, but they are mainly for towing durability. I was running a tow tune from innovative and was noticing some pretty rough shifts with the truck jumping forward while shifting. I never had this before and assume this caused some shock loading on my gears that led to the failure. I have already spoke to innovative and they have already sent me their AGG towing tune. Is there anything else I should be looking into changing so I don't break gears again? I only had about 18k miles on the gears. I was thinking maybe a wicked wheel would ease up surging if it was turbo related. If it was line pressure and shifting issue hopefully the new tune addresses it. Any help or input would be appreciated. I dont want to have to get towed and need new gears every 18k miles.
