Default [PART-OUT] 1999 Durango - Burgundy

Hi all,

New guy here. My dad's 1999 Durango just bit the dust. He thinks it was a rod bearing. Still starts up but sounds absolutely horrible. He has just dumped a ton of money into new parts before it died. New plugs/wires, alternator, thermostat, steering box, hubs and brakes. The vehicle has approx. 400K miles on it. He's looking to make some quick cash to get a decent down payment going for his next work vehicle.

Sorry if this breaks any rules and if it does just remove this post mods.

Pics will be up shortly to show physical condition and engine shot.

Brandon

Give me a location and let me know what the condition of his front differential assembly is...and if it's a 3.55. If it's the 3.73 assembly see if he can give me a deal on the front and rear diff assembly.

If you're close to me and it has the nv242 transfer case I might be interested in that

Yeah, the nice thing about the nv242 is I'd have 2wd, awd, and 4wd. I just think it would be nice to have the awd to leave engaged on the road when there is patchy snow and ice, since you can't leave the 4wd engaged on dry pavement.

You can leave 4wd engaged on dry pavement. Itís when you turn that things get iffy. I often did that in my Titan when driving on the highways in Colorado/Rockies. Never caused any harm.

If you are going down the road <55mph and itís fairly straight -it wont cause any harm. The harm comes from when **** starts to bind because of lack of slipping.

In theory it wouldn't hurt anything, but there are variances in diameter from tire to tire, so it can still damage things even going straight.
