Default 2002 ranger fx4 rear

I was under the immpresion that i blew the rear on my ranger i heard a loud bang and would go knoware. but if that was true wouldn't i still be able to put it in 4wd witch i can't. did i do more damage than the rear? when i put it in gear the spedo moves and i was told the trans was fine. just a little odd that the front wheels wouldn't activate with the transfer case.

When that Torsen goes, you're very lucky if you're even able to MOVE the truck in the driveway. Usually when that carrier goes, it takes out the ring and pinion with it, leaving gear teeth in the bottom of the case that could and likely will end up jamming between the R&P.



And these cases, the chains don't just go. They get sloppy....the only time they snap is when they are very very heavily abused. And even then, the housing usually splits in half loooooooooong before the chain lets go when abused..

I had a friend with a 98 ranger and he blew the chain on his t-case, also blew a hole threw the case. The truck was running 35's and was heavily abused. Chain snapped while trying to pull out my 2wd ranger that was stuck in some sand.
