Well, after 12 days of looong days, I'm finally off and planned on heading to Moab tomorrow. I noticed my transfer case was leaking the other day, but didn't have a chance to investigate it until today. There is a big crack in it.  :banghead: Not sure what I am going to do now. It's a really small town and not sure I can find one around here. I did install a NP229 which should be easier to find than an Eagle case.

Wow this is turning into quite the trip from heck for you.  I did a quick search online for you and didn't find any 229's listed but I'll keep looking.  Good luck!

I've looked also. We have an extra truck here and I'm waiting to hear back if I can use it to bring my bike to Moab. I am working another 11 day shift next week, so I have some time to find one. One of our guys will be going home to Denver and coming back before I leave, so he can pick up a transfer case from a buddy of mine in Aurora. It's a 119, but it will get me home.

Here's some more pics of work. I can't believe I get paid to have this much fun.  ::)
We moved from Snow Cats to Marshmasters. They are more of a tracked swamp buggy.



This was our limo, one day.

Some of my awesome driving.

The views are spectacular.

There are a couple 88/89 Grand Wagoneers in the U Pull N Pay on Broadway - not sure if one of them might have a 229 or not.

Thanks Dave, but I'm going to put a 119 in to get me home. I have a 229 at home but when i do the AW4 swap I think I'm going with a 242.

Strike Eagle to the rescue! My "buddy" who was supposed to get a transfer case to my coworker so that he can bring it to me, flaked out on me. My coworker was leaving this morning and I called Paul at about 6 last night. He has a transfer case and is meeting my coworker so that I can get it installed this week so i can drive home.  :occasion14:

Got the car back from the shop today and seems to be working great. Hitting the road in the morning.

Thanks, I made it back today with no issues. I'm really glad everything worked out the way that it did. The rear case half looks like it was about to split in half.
