John
First, WELCOME HOME MAN, AND THANKS FOR YOUR SERVICE. WE ARE GLAD TO HAVE YOU BACK!

Unless you put a blower and nitrous on there you didn't strip those two gears. They are 1" wide helical cut and will take way more than what you threw at em. What year club and what size tires did you end up running.

Yeah you need to figure out if it is the F&R unit or the diff, Sound like if might be in the diff if you have that loose weld floating around in there.

well here is the problem.. seems the welds let go in the rear and must have lodged in between the gears and split out the side of the carrier, so if any one knows where i can find a new carrier for tthis baby, pm me or let me know, please!!
