Driving to work. I had exited I-70. Going South on Vail Valley. I was doing maybe 15-20 mph. It was like someone hooked a chain to the rear axle. Truck just fricken' stopped. Back wheels both locked up. Had to get a wrecker to tow it home. One and only time in 18 years of owning Toyota's that I couldn't drive home. Pinion gear fell into the ring, broken teeth on both. Got a used front diff from Salida and stuffed it in the rear, few days later I was back on the road.
