    Welp just got home from holister...(about 11pm saturday)...here is the list of broken parts from the time i left from holister:

    Frizzlefry Broken Axle front long side D44 (on the mini rubicon)
    Matt (i dont know the screen name) Broken axle long side D44 (crawling up the wall in the obstical course)
    Chaz88k5 1 toasted tranny...it was slippin while i was there but i made it back while towing my friends truck...took me about 5 miles to get up to 55...most of the time i couldent get over 45

    Chris's Bronco Bent tie rod
    Junkyardcrawler Tire poped off the bead

    but i had a great time...only thing that was dissapointing was the amount of people that showed up compaired to the amount that signed up.....i think the last count when i rolled out of there was 15...out of 54?? that signed up.

    Matt did way more today... it's darn pretty now with the dents, broken topper window, broken tail lights, scrapes, busted u joints and whole axle the now moves totally forward when you move the steering wheel....

    Even though you guys broke some parts it sounds like you had a blast.

    Axle moves forward while turning the steering wheel? I had that happen last year at this time, I sheered off a spring bolts(one that hold the leaves together in the center of the spring pack).. That was not fun driving it home!

    Matt's (babyblue) axle moved front to back (insed of steering) because of a bent leaf spring.

    10-4. When mine swas steering like that, I sheered a center pin for the spring and then the shim broke. The shim fell out and the spring moved forward and backward when the wheel was turned. Talk about a driving experience!
