Have any of you broken the front ring and pinion!

If so what:
Ratio?
Posi,locker,open?
Tire size?
What was the situation?

A friend of mine was using his land cruiser to pull a stump with the winch but, he didnt tie off to a tree or anything. That popped the ring gear pretty quick. I think he has 35 mtr's and a arb locker (not sure of the ratio though.)

I know Jimmy, Charga71, grenaded his spiders up front. Don't know about the ring and pinion. He was open with 4.10s, too.

On my old 90 with the 22re my fron diff stripped like 6 teeth out. I dont think I did it, as I just bought the truck and had a bunch stuff to do to it over several months without driving it. But that had 4.10's and 31's stock. Open too. Just picked a 'new' one up at a salvage yard for 175 bucks with the brackets on it.

A friend of mine (dumb one) had a very similar vehicle except had 33's, 4.10's, and a open and blew out the rear. Probably mall mobbin or tryin to do a burnout (mud tires dont just wear out in 3 months from new at strange rates). This guys grandpa paid to get it re-geared. As in ''fixed' with styock gears. Then almost left all of the shavings inside it if I didn't let him know. PRobably still have some in it. I wonder if they ever put oil back in at least...???

broke 2 sets of 4.10's. open front, one was on 35's and the other on 33 BFG a/t's, (actualluy broke everything inside the casing including exploding the casing) just normal wheeling for me
