    He winched himself up a wet waterfall just fine. Then pulled Marv up, no problem. I was next, then Bam, this happened while Rob was in reverse

    From previous exp...leave an auto trans in neutral whilst winching....it tends to shorten the lifespan of the clutch packs....and if i member right bozo just put that trans in...

    He just put a Doubler in.
    Lets see if I'm right here. Rob had 20ft of cable out, Stalled the ramsey and then decided "I got a doubler" and tried to back up? /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    Hehehe Rob was here in Atlanta a couple weeks back and bragging on how he hasn't broke a shaft since he moved....I got to give him some grief about it LOL.

    Yep, I remember when I was tied to him, and he was trying to drag you off the stuck on the ledge on Fains Fjord. Blew the passenger side ujoint and stub then.

    although this axle break did occur, it was at the end of the trail on the last day.... so it didn't delay us any!.. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif Considering the fact that 3 of us wheeled hard for 3 days straight, then drove home... I was really pleased with the dependability of all of our trucks! We did some tuff stuff up there, and (altho it took more than 2 hrs) we got Fred's truck thru a REDICULOUSLY tight squeeze waterfall without any body damage /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif!!

    This pic is my favorite... :

    [​IMG] Look at how far forward my axle has moved! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif! And to think that when it stuffs, it hits the firewall...

    Grim,

    Careful buckwheat /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif, your treading on thin ice, /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif! Marv is right, we wheeled the dog $hit out of the truck last weekend, and I mean some major trails, very rocky and very skinny trails. I think I had about 50 to 60 feet of cable out, and had the wheel cranked completely to the left, and then like you said decided to hit reverse in double low, and "BANG" broken stub shaft and brokend U Joint. Not bad considering I've been wheeling here for about 2 years with no axle breakage. Let me tell you, I took some very serious lines this last weekend /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif and they were very off camber and high on the canyon walls, and nothing.

    No biggie, I have a few shafts sitting around the house. Hey if this is the worst of my breakage, I'll be glad to repair.

    I'g going to change my SIG to "Sheetmetal is over-rated".

    Rob
