    what was the first thing you messed up while wheeling?

    sometimes nothing is a real cool hand

    what we have here is a failure to communicate

    If dents don't count, then it would have to be a Lockright for me.

    well my 1st breakage ever was last spring, when the tranny died, but that was only on the way to school. wouldnt shift into 3rd, and i didnt know the prob, then goin home, 1st gear was all i had, which sucked cause iw as in the middle of speeding moms and my friends. then i went to back in the driveway, and nothin worked, no reverse no 1st, so it sat in the street till i could get my 2 neighbors my dad and me to push it in the garage.

    trail breakage was my auto hubs 3 weeks ago

    I've never had anything break per se. I came damn close with a cup seal on a u-joint that was bone dry for god knows how long. I was just pulling the driveshaft to check the rear-seal on the t-case and the cup damn near exploded and spewed needle bearings all over. That u-joint was real close to failing and almost a hexagon on the bearing surface instead of a perfect circle...but nothing has actually failed in 120,000 miles, unless you count and AIR manifold shearing for some unknown reason and creating an minor exhaust leak.
