Default NV4500 5th gear MIA

Okay, I knew it was going to happen sooner or later. Six hundred mile trip with the 5er this weekend, 100 miles into the trip fifth gear went bye bye, I just downloaded dodges TSB 21-10-98A. Short of replacing the mainshaft with a fully splined shaft, what's the best fix?? I don't want to pull the tranny, but I want a good fix as my truck's sole purpose is towing. Thanx in advance.

Default Re: NV4500 5th gear MIA

After doing some research the only place I can find that has a repair kit is "Quad 4X4" in Montana. Kit comes with a new 5th gear, clamp style mainshaft nut, mainshaft nut wrench, mainshaft splined socket and threadlocker for $295. Has ANYONE used this repair kit? Reliability? Other distributors (tools or parts)? The TSB on Geno's site is helpful, but only gives Dodge part #'s and no prices (and no tools). Any help would be appreciated, I've gotta get this thing fixed ASAP. [img]/forum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/frown.gif[/img]
