So you have the AX15 Tranny...So you are pushing the clutch in and trying to shift into 1st and it grinds? Or does it go into gear with the clutch in, but grinds when you let the clutch out?

Does 2nd work in 2wd? Without knowing any more info, I would say that your transfer case (NP231) might be the culprit

Mine did something similar once. It wouldn't go into first or reverse at all, with the clutch pressed it would just grind bad. It finally went into first and has not done it since. I still never figured out why it did that.

Probably too much weight and torque put on from the board.

There wasn't a loud pop or anything? Sorry to hear about your bad luck. Time for a 8.8.

Terrible luck just dropped 8 hundred this past weekend. How much does the 8.8 swap cost I found a few online for like 150 in my area but as far the rest of the parts go for the swap. Any ideas?
