As Killjoy already indicated, Lloyd is in the middle of a legal battle w/ Nissan and (deservedly so) has a dim view of Nissan's engineering right now.lloyd Swartz said:Before the flaming starts, I will jump in. There is a string just above here on it. Do a little searching and avoid the flame suit. But yes, the front is un-usable with brittle housings, delicate spiders and cross pins. The entire front end will need replaced eventually for real wheeling. The rear will be ok if its an auto, as it is not the defective D44 design.
You do realize that it is impossible for 2wd trucks to break their front diff, considering they don't even have a front diff!KillJoy LosAngeles said:you didnt mention if you were in the market for a 4x4 timallen. all front diff problems have come from people using 4wd........
if you dont plan to get a 4x4, then frankly i wouldnt lose any sleep. but even if you do get a 4x4, there are guys in here running 33's and 35's who have not broken theirs yet and there are guys running 265's that have so again, take it for what its worth.
btw, welcome aboard!
