  • 263XHD Transfer Case

    So the guys at the DMax Store hooked me up. My old transfer case melted hauling a horse trailer from Elko back to Reno. I called around to 3 local shops and no one here (Reno) seemed to know about the pump-rub issue. You really think I'm dropping $1,500-$2k on a part that has a well-known failure point that you know nothing about? How do I know if your rebuilt one has the 'fix?' And I was told that if I did buy a rebuilt one from one of those shops and opened it up to install the pump-rub kit it'd void the warranty! Screw that. So I drove over the hill to the Dmax Store to pick up a replacement. The guys were knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. I knew I was at the right place when the wife and I pulled into the parking lot and every vehicle (there were at least 15 trucks) is a Duramax of some year or configuration.
    I was surprised to see the new unit came with a new speed sensor. It did not come with the 3 wiring harness brackets, the transfer case/transmission gasket or fluid (heh). I've got about a 1,000 miles on the new unit and it's awesome. Thanks guys!

    Here's the whole album:

    Note - the pics of the 'old' xfer case in this album are of a working case that I'm swapping. Two trucks - truck 1 melts xfer case. Truck 2 does heavier hauling for longer distances. Take melted case, exchange for new DMax rock-crusher. Swap out new case into truck 2, take working case from truck 2, clean it up, put in MA pump rub kit and install into truck 1). Few hours extra work but I rely on my diesel dually to haul an awful lot more than my 3/4-ton sb 8.1/Ally gasser. Yes... the xfer cases were the same and yes, I was completely stoked about that.
