I had to take a friend home from work today,to get to his place the roads are steep,curvy etc. So coming towards home there is a long steep grade,no traffic on it so i get on the fuel,bout half way up i am running 70ish and then something felt like it snapped and when it did is sounded like the tires chirpped,scared the sh!t out of me so i let off,runs fine,shifts fine,what the hell could it have been?

Well after you clean the brown stain from your seat I would start checking fluids and see if you can see any metal flaking. If it still shifts and drives fine I would still check it for codes, maybe it didnt throw an CEL but maybe something else that might tell you. I would also put it in 4wd and make sure that all still works fine. Man, that would scare the crap out of me too!

I was actually thinking of that since I have the quad on 135,but the truck never threw a light or ding?

It may not always be apparent that you threw a code. it may just be a minor code which doesnt pop an CEL. Thats why I said you should probably check for codes. If you were running the quad on 135 you likely slipped 5th gear.

Transfercase- noun: trans-fer-case; apparatus often found in multi-wheel drive vehicles that allows operator to transfer power from motor to front and rear wheels. Typically aids vehicle in covering inhospitable terrain. Sentence: fuck I just limped my transfercase. Alternative spelling $$$$$$$

I agree with it being a slipped gear. Maybe it went to downshift to 4th and there was so mutch power it poped back into 5? Check the fluid and change the spin on filter if you havent for a while :cool:
