Hello TT it has been a while. Here is a small background story on said truck: 04 4x4 6"RCX 35" toyo mt 142k miles I am the second owner. Passenger back seal where the brake is was wet but according to 3 nissan dealers it wasn't something i should be concerned about as it wasn't actually leaking. Traction bars. Driveshaft spacer were also added.

Black friday I cruise by my local bank for a deposit and while heading back out into traffic i notice a horrible noise from the rear like a clunk clunk rip bang ding clunk and the diff light flashed at me 2 or 3 times. I pulled over into the first neighborhood hopped out looked around nothing "looked" broken so i got back in proceeded to drive in that neighborhood and heard the noise again. Sounded like the front and the rear. SO i got a tow up to nissan on a flatbed. After a literally 2 day wait i get a phone call...Rear diff is blown, front diff might be blown, transfer case is blown, etc etc. $7800 i was quoted to fix this.

in the meantime of waiting for nissan to see what happened to my poor baby I went across the street to the Chevy dealer and bought a new 2017 Silverado 1500.

So I want to know what would you guys do?? rebuild the titan front and rear diff and keep the Titan and have 2 car insurance payments and 1 car payment(rado) or sell the titan for probably $4k. Ive been leaning towards selling but I know what a beast she would be with a truetrac.

where is the truck, what state, maybe someone here knows a good place to take it to...

big lift and heavy tires didn`t help that situation. truck being an 04 with that mileage and mods will bring low dollars.

your call. your def going to drop a few grand easily to get everything right. If that`s worth it to you to keep both affordably, the older vehicle will still need maint along the way...

your call.
sounds like it is time to let it go...

now that we know the story, go with a firm 4 K, bc it will cost that just to get it right.
sucks it just pooped out the way it did. I would love to make it my woods truck and just beat it up but cost to fix is too high. Ill sell it and put that money in the new truck.
there ya go, chevy mods are cheaper and plentiful.
