heres me again, right after the tranny took a dump, if ya look close you can see the overheated spillage spot on the ground, this pic doesent show it but right behind me around to the left was a trechorous rocky ledge, as you can see we are in a canyon bottom and this just looked like a good flat spot to cool off some

LOL,, patience grasshopper,, lol I was just getting to that, here is a close up of the fluid spot and wetness around it, i didnt run for the camera exactly right when it was billowing smoke, actually before i did get the cam, i had to go thru the "WTF am i gonna do to get it out of here" moment first, but here ya go, its kinda very hot still here and all the fluid on the ground at this point came pouring out of the front seal for some reason or another, I was dam lucky it didnt catch fire too, i was already going for the extinguisher but didnt need it

as for the "why it blew" i dunno fer sure, it was too dam hot, and i was over working it a bit, I havent torn into it yet, but i didnt feel so bad cause this guy broke this transfer case a few obstacles back, and he had to get towed out, it actually still had some rear wheel drive after the breakage, it would just lock up every few feet, I just didnt wanna start right out with the breakage or the pix wouldnt be as fun

and heres the two victims of the day who needed major repairs one is me and the other is the jeep with the broken t case, dont my 36'skinda look like P205's next to 44's??
ohh ya also in the fluid spot pic you can also see my new home made green(only paint i had) shock hoops (there is also a bar right behind the shock that goes to the top of the frame) and new pro comp shocks, they actually worked great til i broke the tranny, also i got too long of a bolt in the upper shock mount cause again it was all i had at the time, like my copper tubing spacer ??lol,, well im off to bed fer now, i gotta wake at 5 am again tomorrow
