More 10-bolt carnage (big surprise)

    Yeah... it's my own fault. Too much loud pedal and not enough axle.

    Yes, I've learned my lesson.

    No, I'm not going to upgrade to a D60. I can buy a LOT of axle shafts for $1500. :D

    Although next time I'm going to unlock the hub as soon as the u-joint breaks. I think some of this carnage could have been avoided.

    Inner axleshafts usually break very cleanly like that. Stubs can be a little more ugly when they break.

    thats a nice break, where did you do that at?

    the last time i broke a ujoint in my 10 bolt, it didn't mess up the axle shafts at all. i unlocked the hub drove home and to work and such. the next weekend the hub took a **** and locked in, which messed up the ears of both shafts. it also locked up the wheel on that side as they were binding, i was only going a few mile and hour on a dirt road, pulled into my friends house and tore the hub apart to unlock it so i could drive it.

    Broke it trying to go through a too-narrow, uphill, icy trail at the Mounds. The u-joint snapped first and then the truck slid down a fork trail and trapped me sideways inside of a "bowl".
    With the broken parts up front and an open diff in the back, the rest of the damage happened as I was trying to rock it back and forth to get out of the bowl.
    I ended up moving the winch to the back and pulling the ass end over and up the hill so I could point the nose down the hill and back onto a trail.

    After I got out, I was like, "Damn... should have gotten some pictures."

    Oh, well. I'll post a pic of the end of the broken shaft when I get home. I'm keeping the little piece on my desk as a souvenir. :D

    the same day i put my 38.5 hawgs on i did two short sides just like that on the inner and one u joint that took the ears off and then on the third front i blew the spiders out in the rear and cracked the carrier then a front pinion bearing went out from water in the diff, it was still a fun time but until i run out of ten bolt crap my 3/4 stuff is just gonna wait

    I've never heard of 35s as being a lot to ask of a 10-bolt... but whatever.

    None taken.

    Plowing is really hard on a truck, actually.

    Anyway... at least the u-joint was still under warranty. :D

    The guy at AutoZone was like, "What the...?!"

    :whistle:
