The shaft was an issue on the earlier 90's with the LT-77's as well, and not all of them got the retrofit parts. I've also heard that in some cases the LT-77's were replaced with R-380's under warranty.

Unfortunately, replacing the shaft means tearing down the transmission. But it is possible that it's already been repaired/upgraded, which is why you need to check before spending money on replacing the whole transmission.

You also mentioned that you need to replace the transfer case, what's wrong with it? They are usually one of the more durable parts of the truck.

Brace for impact, I'm in a "modifying mood". Massive thread count inbound.

Just want to say thanks to all for the help. Under advice from Steve and Drew at Rovertym, I re-checked the rear pinion angle again. Took all the spacers out of the Rovertym rear links. So far, the banging, clanging noise I was hearing has gone away. The other noises, playing card in bike spokes, etc, are still there. My guess is tranny output shaft or TC input. At this time, plan to ride it till something breaks or gets to the point of having to replace. Hope it doesn't happen on my way out to Utah next year!
