Default Blew my rearend LMAO

So today I was driving to meet my dad at his house to go to work (we got a construction company) so I saw him outside of the house and I rolled down my window a d yelled "watch this *****" I reved it to 4k while I was rolling around 5-10mph and dumped the clutch, tires started spinning and clank clank boom bang I started LMAO and we pushed the car into his driveway. Now I really gotta get of my lazy *** and swap my rearend that's been sitting in my garage for over 3 years.

Get a bigger breaker bar.

Breaker bar + HF floor jack handle = win.

Why don't I see loads of PB blaster residue dripping off of that?

Disconnect the PPF from the Tranny, support the tranny, and drop the diff/ppf assembly as a whole. At least it will be easier to deal with your problem with it out of the car.

yank the ppf off the trans it comes off easy then its out the way and you can pull the diff down. the whole rear subframe comes of easy enough that it might be easier to just yank the whole thing and do the diff out of the car then slap it back up but then again it seems i like to do **** the hard way

there's no way I'd drop the entire subframe for that....just the PPF.
