Carnages!!

Someone had to have a couples of carnages!! post what you had over the weekend!

to start with, here's mine...

-2 left side Dana turdy-five axle shaft which in result a 8.25C swap in the campground
-one wheel's lugstud holes enlargened and kept losing nuts (I actually lost the tire, it rolled for about 50 yards away)
-transmission fluid loss, not sure where its leaking from but i think its leaking from the input shaft seal.

Re: Carnages!!

Same thing I did last time I wheeled, ripped the exhaust off.

Maybe it's time to weld that sucker...

Or leave it that way, it sounds bad ass.

I had to rebuild a hub before the trail run or I would have lost a wheel. Other than that I have a bunch of new clunking to track down.......

Oh yea somehow I busted out my front passenger side blinker, I will never be able to drive it on the road again.

You can still drive it on road, by using hand signals

Re: Carnages!!

I got some new pinstripes. I took it easy as usual. I think my swaybar is hitting a coil now though.

Re: Carnages!!

I would have had some pretty significant rear quarter panel damage if I didn't have www.jcroffroad.com quarter panel protection.

For more information on the ultimate in XJ quarter panel protection, please visit www.jcroffroad.com for all your XJ quarter panel protection needs.

Re: Carnages!!

Lots of clunking from the UCA bushings.

Popping steering box.

T'case is not happy. It's either the chain or the output bearing.
