Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Brutal. Sounds about like last winter for me. Every other week there was something crapping out on me. Can't complain too much though, 215K on my 06 silverado and I still trust it, and get 18 MPG.

I have sympathy and empathy. I really do. However, as long as you don't have to ask someone to cut up your food, you're doing better than I am.
Truly am sorry for your troubles.

Are you sure it's the transfer case? I run with guys that have 275-375,000 miles on theirs and they're still untouched originals.

Jeep transfer case:

1998 Wrangler with 4:1 Terraflex gear reduction set and slip yoke eliminator.

I was driving on a freeway on-ramp, accelerating at 45 mph. There was a loud pop and the car jerked. I thought I hit something but could not see anything in the rear view mirror. It drove home fine. I parked it at home over night. In the morning there was a big puddle of transfer case oil under it. It would not leak like that in one spot with a bad seal. I think the case cracked. Probably half of the chain let go and bit a hole in the case that I cannot see due to the skid plate. I might take it in tomorrow for repair. It needs to go to a 4wd specialty shop due to the 4:1 gear set in the transfer case.

The Jeep only has 80K original miles.

I might torch the flat bed off the 1986 F250 and send the rest of the truck to live with Allah.

Does it crank, or is it just dead? On those trucks, the ignition control module liked to go out. If you were lucky, you might get a "click" when you turn the key, or just get nothing at all. Easy repair on that truck.

Or, the starter solenoid - get under and tap it with a wrench or something -- not too hard, though. Every once in a while they get hung up. Could be the camshaft position sensor, but I don't recall if they were in that year truck, yet.

The 1986 F250 turns over and fires. It will run on starting fluid a little bit but I can't keep it going. There is fuel and fuel pressure.

It pre-dates the cam shaft sensor. I am thinking it is not electronic because it will run for a bit on starting fluid. The fuel supply and pressure are fine. I switch between tanks and get the same result.

Maybe the timing chain skipped a beat.

On the 86, is it carburetated, or fuel injected?
