Driving in 4WD due to no rear driveshaft.
HMMWV tires on factory TTB Dana 44.
Waiting to make a left turn/front tires already turned/oncoming traffic waved me to go/quickly pressed throttle/instant SNAP......
I press throttle again; only rev'ed engine, not moving.
Construction crew helped pull my Bronco home (down the street).
Front driveshaft appears to be intact.
Tried to turn, felt like it should.
Front axle's left/center-right/and right U-joints 'appears' to be intact.
Start engine/shift into drive/press throttle/ Weeeeeeeee with a fast clicking sound/not moving.
Turn off engine.
My only other nOOB thought is that I snapped the T-case chain.
Thoughts/suggestions/opinions are welcomed.
Jack the front up and rotate the wheels with the hubs still engaged. If spinning both the left and the right cause the driveshaft to turn, then it might be your transfer case. I’d be more inclined to believe you wrecked a hub or snapped a shaft than just outright broke the chain. They usually start to skip, slap, and otherwise make noise before they let go.
WINNER!!! WINNER!!! CHICKEN DINNER!!!
The fuckin' driveside hub was very loose and missing two of the six bolts.
Tighten said hub up and replaced one of the missing bolts.
Started her up/shifted to Drive/drove her from street curb to my carport.
Tried removing/unbolting the backseat floor-mounted seatbelt bolts in the Bronco.
The bolts would not budge!
I soaked said bolts in homebrew, veggie oil/acetone, over a period of hours.
Said bolts still would not budge....
Tomorrow the cut-off wheel will go to work.
