Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Noise progressively got worse while using the fulltime 4 wheel drive. A grinding noise could be heard under light acceleration and it was more pronounced while going up a hill. Eventually, you could hear it while in the Auto-4wd mode. Dealership replaced the transfer case with a new one. The mechanic showed me that the drilling of the transfer case, where the race is installed, was not square so the bearing rode around the race at an inside-outside pattern, eventually damaging the bearing. The mechanic said that this was the second truck that had this problem.
