Gears

Once at Twisted Customs in South Dakota, I pulled the inspection cover on the transmission and was greeted with the sight of very little gear lube and the smell of burnt parts. I found most of my gear lube had pumped out of the NV4500 transmission and into my Lowmax 205 transfer case, thus starving the gears for oil until they burnt themselves up. It was an impressive break, and time to pull it all apart. This adventure wasn't going to be cheap.
