Red appreciate the thought but even if I was local there I could not afford it.

Buggers in the Transmission shop was supposed to call me back this afternoon, I tried to call them and no answer...

Anywho, the person I talked to this morning has a strong belief that my transfer case went out on me, but as I said, he never called me back. I"m calling them first thing Monday morning.

That would be a much cheaper option for sure

You're not the only one..

Guess I have to lighten up on the gas pedal.. this is the second time with trans problems. First time was at 57K miles and now about 53 or so K miles later it happens again..

I finally got a hold of them this morning, they're pretty damn sure it's the transfer case but he told me he wanted to check to make sure nothing else was wrong with the transmission as well - never know what could have been pulled into it.

I should have had Dodge tell me what kind of transfer I had when I bought the truck and then would have told them to give me the more heavy duty one (preferably gear drive over chain drive)...

Guess chain drives have a heart attack if you're a little heavy on the gas like I am..

Gawd I miss the days...

Gawd I wish I had plenty of $$$!!!!!!

I had the truck transferred to another shop, I just had a feeling that the ******* in the first shop was trying to rip me off.

Got news from the second shop this morning and found out and don't understand WHY IN THE HOLY HELL DODGE put a light weight trans in a truck with a Hemi 4x4!!!!!

Anywho, he doesn't believe that there's anything wrong with the transfer case, instead it's in the transmission. I am inclined to believe them as my nephew had a transmission redone with them in a older Chevy and they did an outstanding job for him.

I'll know later today when they look inside.

As I mentioned before, my first transmission problem came when the truck hit 57k miles, the torque converter locked up and stripped the input shaft, it was under warranty, hopefully this is the only problem it has now and the cost may not be that much. I'm possibly looking at approx 4800 if it is worse

Got the bad news yesterday morning, WHOLE trans has to be rebuilt, he sent me pictures of the parts and they don't look good. I had a trans problem before back at 57K miles, wondering now if dodge ever bothered to check and clean and repair the inside before? BET NOT!

Will know monday morning how the transfer case it, should be ok.. I HOPE!

An incompetent shop might not have flushed or replaced the trans cooler/lines when the trans was last overhauled.
