All 4xFord owners and former owners!!

i have had a 79 bronco and a 79 ford pick up. i got rid of both of them because after having to pay someone $800 about 20 years ago to rebuild the txr case, when i noticed the transfer case vibrating in four wheel drive on dry and semi dry pavement, i didnt want to have to pay for a rebuild again. i thought the vibration ment there was something wrong and about to let go.

COME TO FIND OUT the other day, JUST the other day, that the Ford 9 inch gear ratio WILL NEVER and never does match up exactly with the dana 44 front end. they will always be at least one tooth off. causing that vibration on dry pavement. SO NOTHING WAS WRONG AND I SOLD MY TRUCK FOR NOTHIN~!

Live and learn, eh.................

I guess you didn't have an owners manual for either of these trucks. It says in there that you should not drive in 4 wheel drive on dry/bare pavement.

The front diff is usually slightly different to pull rather than having the back diff pushing, hense the vibration on dry pavement.

yeah but sometimes when the snow is melting on the road and you have dry patches in between ice/snow you dont have a choice. with my chevy now, both difs are gm corporate and the gears are the same. they dont climb worth a crap tho cause they usually put open difs in them unlike the fords limited slip option, but it isnt gonna screw with my txr case like the ford ...as long as my tires are the same size and tread depth. i have to change my ratios anyway cause my tires are doggin me out down low. have 32s now but want to go to a 35 eventually so i need to lose my 3:50 gears. when i traded my bronco i got my 55. i actually wish i'd have kept it. the truck i traded for a 69 AMX so that wasnt too terrible.
