Here is where our overnight upgrades hit a little snag. While using the gear puller to remove the old high-output gear, someone didn't notice a tiny pilot bearing that sits down inside the output shaft, and accidentally crushed it. We looked over the directions and saw no note to watch for this bearing, but by then it was too late anyways. So with the transfer case in pieces, we called it a night until I could get another bearing the following day.
