Re: Carnages!!

Broke off the CB antenna putting the Jeep in the garage - does that count as carnage??

Re: Carnages!!

New and improved aerodynamic body creases courtesy of 'Revs Run' and a lazy decision of not wanting to go into reverse on my part.

Re: Carnages!!

Smashed up rockers, broke rear upper shock mount, tree rubbage, clutch fan hitting shroud on heavy climbs, some more mysterious pops and squeaks..Almost lost a rear window, was flexing in pretty good..saved it though. I had a great time!

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.

We stopped on Sunday after you lost the tire and you were jacking it up.. glad to see you got er fixed up.. Congrats on the award Saturday night!

Re: Carnages!!

-Ripped the exhaust off the downpipe and smashed the tailpipe, then tore a hole in the fuel line from the filter to the tank

Wait for it . . .

-Ripped the exhaust off the downpipe and smashed the muffler, then tore a hole in the fuel line from the filter to the tank

-Popped the rear driveshaft u-joint on rockface thanks to some axle wrap that has also done a little flattening to the passenger leaf, which was most quickly replaced thanks to everyone there, including the $200 u-joint I got for free from the rough country boys.

Big thanks to Brian from HD Offroad for the ride to the quarry and getting greasy on a u-joint

Other than that, very pleased. The heep goes where you point it.

Re: Carnages!!

Lets see. Thursday I had a clip come off a cap on the front axleshaft. So I drove back to camp and replaced with a very used axleshaft. Wheeled on that most of Friday and replaced that one with one Tyler was nice enough to give up. Broke a tailight on orange due to backing up into a tree. Saturday, I don't think I broke anything.

Re: Carnages!!

My first rocker damage....really need sliders.

Lots of rubbing....need front bump stops and a little trimming.

Some crazy sounding coil spring noise that I don't know what is causing it.

Realizing I want to sell the 31's to get some 33's.
