This is what happened to my front diff while doing a great snow run.

At first I heard like my front diff was skipping a gear on the pinion ring gear assembly. I thought it needed a shimming on the side of the diff like someone said on this forum so I took it apart and here is what I found.

The carrier for the side gear and planetary gear was partially off the ring gear. 2 of the screws holding the gear to the carrier were broken. The little shinny spot on the carrier. The other 2 screws were torn off the carrier too. So to fix this it is going to be a new case and new screws.

Iíve seen this before on real 1:1 truck but a first on my Summit.

What do you think?
