    Complete rebuild questions.

    From my limited reading today,alphas are helical and weaker than the ones on the hmmwv, but hold better with higher speeds in regards to heat etc and prevent brake swaying when stopping hard. Also read where someone remachined the geared hubs for uniballs, and basically redid the complete...

    Doing all the work that I can myself. Just curious if it is worth swapping to alphas or not. From what I'm seeing really only if swapping engines etc would it be worth it.

    If I'm going to swap Haven't looked at the engine yet to see which variant it is really. Casting is 12555506 11-19-L so nov-19th year I'm unsure of but in the 2000s I'd assume.

    Blew up my rear dif this winter as well as a few other things. Decided to start tearing into it. It's a 91 soft top m998 6.5 NA currently looking at the following. Upgrade halfshafts to 12k (has the 10k on). My main question is it looks like the alpha hubs are also a good idea. Are the H1...

    Grenaded rear end?

    I will have to check. I took this video a few months ago. But I can basically free turn the rearend where it goes into the differential by hand no matter what its in. Assuming that's not suppose to happen.

    Question on aftermarket parts and fitment

    Didn't get it on a lift yet. We did pick it up with a backhoe. Looks like my differentials are the culprit. Likely from putting pressure on the brakes with tires spinning in low. Also have some half shaft damage. Sent out a email to a few companies that I know at one time had developed and...

    Question on aftermarket parts and fitment

    Likely more than 1 problem. Hoping to get it up on the lift I just had put in if they ever finish getting it all hooked up.

    Question on aftermarket parts and fitment

    If I can figure out how to upload videos on imgur or what not I'll upload tonight. Messing around for a few minutes, the minute the front tires meet resistance it seems like the transfer case pops out

    Question on aftermarket parts and fitment

    Because they jumped off when we were being idiots apparently. Had to order the alternator belts. Got it all put back together. Started it up sans alternator belts and putting it into R or any drive theres a loud clunk after a few minutes and the front is the only ones spinning. Back end tires...

    Question on aftermarket parts and fitment

    Thanks for the post definitely worth the read. Drove hmmwvs for 10 years in the military never once was told this. Probably should've been common sense but I'm not exactly a rocket scientist when it comes to 4x4 type stuff

    Question on aftermarket parts and fitment

    Firstly, we definitely were not driving properly. I got it fully knowing offroading/driving through my cornfield etc was going to likely break shit. Finally got time to look at it. And at the moment it looks like it'll be some knuckle busting fun as the V belts are all out of their grooves and...
