No warning signs? When was it last serviced?

Guessing you wheel... G80's don't like abuse, they're not actually designed for it lmao. Since it made the decision easy for you I'd say get a proper locker.

I don't think it had been serviced I bought the truck a year ago November and all the bolts on the diff cover were seized and the cover was rotten and dripped quite a bit so I kinda knew this would happen eventually. In the year I owned it I filled it twice each time I put a whole litre in. The locking mechanism never worked since day one tho so I think its been a ticking time bomb since I bought it and I've done a lot of wheeling with it

Replaced the axle with another g80 this one works most of the time. Got the axle and brand new brakes for $100 so I can't go wrong really.

Rofl, i hate to say it but that hole is a beauty, reminds me of our old custom Cut piece of gutter we made into a rocket launcher for new years back in the day when a bottle rocket came off the stick and blew it wide open at the bottom lol.

We've had that close to happening in my dads C1500, the rear end was original and it was estimated close to about 100 miles from self detination. We did a complete rear end swap in the driveway from a '98 extended cab lol

Well i put another g80 in and it locks right up... most of the time, the odd time it just refuses to work but what a difference when it does. Im just keeping my fingers crossed hopefully this one lasts me

Take it easy on it.

The G80 won't lock over 40mph IIRC, even if your wheel spin is that high. And if the speed difference between the 2 wheels is too great it just won't lock because it'll end up looking like your last one did. So if you start doing the one wheelie peelie let off the go pedal a little bit until you feel the truck grip and then go.

For the same reasons I just mentioned they're not that great for mudding
