Decided to overhaul my TV for s happy Towing year

Since my TV has 298K on her and I have gone through 2 trannies - I burnt one up totally my fault - long story lsome other time ,,,,, and this one has about 200k on it - I decided I don't have enough to do - lol and tore everything apart last night and today and while doing so found a few other worn pieces ......
Remove all tires, drive shafts, transfer case, transmission, rear end hub ( this is not easy w a quadrasteer)
List of to do
Rebuild trams with new updated HD plates, shift kits ect - crazy amount of stuff
Rebuild transfer case - works fine now but I'll need 4 wheel drive to get out of a few places I go - need to make sure it's in good shape
Change all u joints
Rear end looks great put back together new gasket fluid - - fluid = about 140$ for this rear end
Found front A arms bushing have some play go figure - original change out top and bottom

That should keep me busy for a couple weeks 😜
Wish me a fast rebuild need to get it done in two week to have time to break everything in because RV time start in 5Click image for larger version

See now, you're talking about not getting to the trailer mods like WW and I... but you certainly are getting the work done! She'll be ready for another 300k...

Went thru brakes a couple months ago - and that's been changed every other year - I'm a believer in changing fluids on manufacture recommends and some early depending on how hard I'm running - That's how it's still running - my real plan is beef everything up to handle a supercharger 😮 maybe winter project.

PH,
That is some massive knowledge you have there. I would be a great helper in getting you a beer from time to time. But not in helping with what you described above.
Wishing you the best on this project.

I did the transfer case in my Jeep at one point--might as well throw a 4:1 in there while you have it apart!

I've been into VW transaxles a couple of 350 turbos and more recently an A4 in the Mustang but it was simple compared to this one. All the best to you friend! If I lived closer I'd love to help. BTW, heading out for a three day tour around Great Smoky Mountains NP. Short trips each day, with local back road sight-seeing. Thursday or Friday I plan to visit Wheel Through Time (What's in the Barn - TV show) in Maggie Valley... Is my birthday tomorrow.
