    Damn, you can drag that thing through upper hell with no problems I would have figured the hammers would have been a cake walk. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I was doing great till about 2/3 up the trail when I blew a right front u-joint which took out both shafts on that side. I then got the truck turned around and started heading back down the trail in 3wd then pow, left front u-joint and shafts went. Then I was in 2wd. Coming down the trail in 2wd just makes it very difficult to do things without breaking more stuff... Ended up with a tally of:

    4 front axle shafts
    2 ujoints
    front driveshaft
    winch rope
    2 windows
    1 headlight
    no oil pressure for 20 minutes or so

    All seems well though, still blasting up sand dunes at 60 mph the next day, but in 2wd /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    HEY, dont forget about me! I broke the samurai on backdoor. Stupid little birfs. Then the god damn exhaust, that thing is soooo loud now with open exhaust. I need to put a muffler on it so when I fire it up the neighbors dont kill me. Oh yeah, we also broke a Pitman SHaft on my dads truck winching Jason's big ass truck backwards. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
