    Get this I am rebuilding a 86 jimmy. You name it, it's new. I got the moter,trans,t-case,axles back in ;and i tow it to the muffler shop.after waiting two days its ready to be towed back. Well on the way home I ran over a piece of carpet. usually no big deal, but one thing I don't have the drive shafts in and the rear yoak grabed the carpet (katrina trash most likely) and twisted it all up on it. After pulling over i removed the carpet and noticed play in the yoak. When I got it home it started leaking from the yoak.

    Just thought I share that with yall

    plastic bags will do the same and get sucked way in the yoke....

    so next time you see road debris or bags flying through the air beware they really can do some damage
