For the ones that answered no to being covered under warranty was that due to lifting the truck, etc or just being out of warranty, ie. to many miles, etc?

no



i wheel it on the beach mainly only because nothing is close enuf to me besides uhwarrie.

i did wheel it at buckhorn dam where the fishing access is and it went up the rocky cliff face exit ramp like a billy goat.

i do try to keep the wheel spin down and the wheels straight. on sand, it's wide open cause i have slip everywhere.

i just changed to 265/75R16 AT KOs so we shall see. I baby this thing and if it snaps on me. well....

Covered under warranty: Yes 100% plus a free rental car! Done in 10 days! Left lift on, no problem, (I think its a dealer call) I think I am 1st to have Just the gears replaced though? The rest of the Diff was fine. Drove it 400 miles back from ECXC after it blew at 55K miles. Also blew mine doing something I have done many times, something easy, So no one is immune. Glad I blew mine under warranty. That was close.
