Interesting, I would have expected a big diesel or something. I have hammered on mine pretty hard and never saw any issues (other than the pinion nut getting loose) even with the stock gears that had something like 270k on them. Does it have an anti wrap bar of some sort? If not it may be time to get one before wheeling it again.

What gears were in it? I may have a set of used stock gears if you need them (not my old ones).

I am glad you were able to make it home though, and am surprised it didn't finish breaking on the way!
