    actually no, i should though, i think the axle tube might`ve cracked in the rear, as well as the pinion loosening up big time, and the front i blew up the spiders and maybe more, havent fully inspected it, but it was so FUN!

    That first time always tells you what needs to be upgraded. The first time I went wheeling was when I had 3.08 and open front and rear, plus my 305 was minus a few upgrades and needed a tune up. I couldn't even get up that first hill we hit where you forgot to lock your hubs. I also found out that mud can easily spray through the hole in my floor. I was glad I didn't break anything on that first trip.

    This is the only picture I have of you offroading:

    I think all this carnage is from just picking the wrong path to go through. But you couldn't have known the terrain under that muddy water. You probably would have been better if you followed the path I used. Or at least it would have been easier to pull you out.
