I got lucky. The guy i bought my Jimmy from was a real good dude and he described it accurately. He sent a ton of pictures. After i agreed to buy it i sent him a paypal deposit and he said he would hold onto it for as long as i needed him to until i could make arrangements to get it. About a week after i sent him the deposit my boss at work told me that we got a job in Colorado and wanted me to run it. Perfect! I elected to drive instead of flying. I ended up leaving to pick it up about 3 weeks from when i made the deposit on it. I spent a week getting the job going and then picked it up on my way back home, so bringing it home didn't cost me a dime! I guess me and this Jimmy were meant for each other.

Here are some pictures of the transfercase rebuild.
