Re: what did you break

Not exactly a RC issue, but it was starting to act up there. I just changed the starter, in the Wawa parking lot... in the rain. Fun stuff. Old_Whitey88 took my rig to work today and called me at 7:30 am to tell me it's dead. Damn things are getting pricey, $180 for a reman.

Re: what did you break

Just had to replace the water pump, the damn thing started making all kinds of noise riding all day and right as I was pulling back to the driveway, check engine came on and it and the t-stat were done.

35s + locker + stock D30 shafts + skinny pedal = SAAAAANAP!!

It was the first time I witnessed an axle snap .... I thought it was pretty darn cool

Re: what did you break

My humble list includes the torn-out shock mount, some more lovely crunches to the rocker panels, a 1/2 torn valvestem that magically held air until you touched it (drove on it for a week after I got home til I found it), more rock rash on the wheels, a couple new side dents, a cracked winch motor case, and both driveshafts lathe-cut and officially bent...
I cant wait to go back.

Re: what did you break

Still can't understand why you won't protect the rocker panels, Rich.

Hey, make sure you call me when the next trip rolls around!

Yikes, that happened to me in Moab back in 2001... it turned out the bellhousing on the XJ was already stress cracked, and bouncing off of Dump Bump did it in. Bellhousing came out in 5 pieces.

Maybe because you like mud?

If you're talking about the tube seals in by the pumpkin, probably your tubes are all full of junk (the OEM dust caps are powerless to stop this).

Maybe time for some Superior outer seals?
