    Broke an axle backing out of my driveway in the 10 bolt today. I thought I could get away with replacing the axle, but when the axle broke, the drum brakes went to pieces and it bent the backing plate and axle tube. Now my truck is sitting at the end of my driveway and I have no way to move it.

    Look on the bright side - It could have been sitting out on some trail 100 miles from your home. Welcome to the broken 10bolt club.

    Gotta agree with BB454 at least you weren't 100 miles from home.

    I am glad that it didnt happen out on the trail, or far away from home. And I do have 35" tires, which I know is death for a 10 bolt. I am pretty much done with my 14 bolt but I dont have the money for the wheels & tires. I went out and bought an old beater truck today to get me by until I can get the Blazer back on the road.
