The ‘03-up Dodge Diesel 4wd trucks, equipped with the 48RE, have problems with cracking the overdrive housing. Their t-cases, mated to the overdrive housing, weigh about 80 lbs but have nothing in place to support them. TC48REAC solves this problem. A specially designed steel bracket installs in place of the lower two bolts (longer bolts supplied), and includes the common GM universal mount. As if it were meant for this, the factory skid plate has an existing hole! TC48REAC includes a machined steel spacer/washer (fits below skid plate) with tapered groove to clear OEM stamping.
These housings are subject to breakage for several reasons. When replacing always check U-Joints carefully a common cause of failure. Also shifting into park when not fully stopped can cause breakage.
These are brand new Mopar updated housings. Both Gaskets, Extension Housing to Case Extension Housing to Transfer Case are included.
