The spider gears is what breakers in the 04-07 axles, this would be the first for the improved 08-Up design.

Guess Nissan only improved the axle bearings and seals and left the carrier with the same weak spider gears.

Yeah, unfortunately that's a common failure for the spider gears to disintegrate like that. I have seen quite a few in my days. And you are correct, the '08+ have the exact same spider gears as the '05-07 Titans. It was only the axle seals and bearings that were changed in 2008. The early '04 rear ends had an even crappier spider gear design, but mid '05 model year to current is all the same as far as carrier design. Anyway, it's a good thing your R&P gears survived. Just grab yourself a truetrac or ARB air locker and it will be better than new. Good luck!

I have an 04 2 wheel drive. At around 120k..one afternoon heading home from work the rearend started with a wining noise...then a metal on metal grind,...turned it around midway home and started back to work....about 25mins in - a pop noise as I pulled back into work.....NOT GOOD
Was sooo pissed at Nissan, I wrote a letter to corporate. Got a Rep that said,...well its out of warranty? I said check out the web,...their are a lot of these same rearend malfunction issues with faithful Titan owners!! Didn't care
I certainly did not want another Nissan OEM replacement!!
I found a differential company that developed a stronger true Dana 60\44 set up with 3:31 gears-LOVE IT...LOVE IT!! Its a costly expense, but I did'nt want this to happen again!
I'm a die hard Titan owner....can't seem to put it up for sale-It just does everything I throw at it and more!!

I had it done at AZ DIFFERENTIAL in Phoenix Arizona. They actually build them, not sure what they call it.
