    A buddy just sent me these links. Looks like a Ford 9-inch. Pretty impressive destruction! [​IMG] I've never seen anyone rip apart the housing like this. [​IMG]

    That is some impressive damage. I think its safe to say that axle was trashed :)

    I'd guess he smacked it hard on a rock, cracking it first...pure torque should have pretzeled the driveshft first.

    I saw one like that in an early bronco at the 4x4 shop I go to .He was bouncing up a ledge some where on the Rubicon and it exploded.The guy was tired of axle problems so he bought 10k worth of Dynatrac high pinion D60s front and rear.

    Been there done that. (all except the pinion gear part) Shot a couple differntial gears through the diff. cover of a 10 bolt once. And that happend in a stock 96 suburban in a tiny mud hole [​IMG]. Lost the C-clips and all. Had to drive it out on a set of tow truck dollies.

    That is one of the local shops here. Im not a big fan if them, they over charge and do low quality work. But that is definetly some quality carnage.

    Yup that is a local shop...I personally aren't fan of them... but they have a lot of Jeep followers. I like the guys at Ken's 4x4 and of course you can't go wrong w/ Hooze 4x4 (Jeff their owner has a Blazer on 39.5's [​IMG])
