    this is my buddy who broke a u joint, we took the axle out so he could drive around with out it beating up the yokes ( ya know jeep no hubs). Anyway the unit bearing fell apart due somewhat to the fact the axle wasn't in there. This guy is always laughing the loudest and pointing out that " I don't have to get out to lock my hubs cause my rig is way more advanced than yours" Now he is thinking about putting hubs on so when he breaks he can just unlock the hub. Anyway the point of this story is poetic justice

    i liked jeeps for a bit, but then i realized how many of them there were, and how a good bit of them were either idiots, assholes of pure egotistic wannabe's. I wanted to be different. Im still in a jeep club, but hey now i just run over and threw there obstacles :P

    I like jeeps. They're good rigs. But I went to an offroad show yesterday, which basically consisted of 45 wranglers in a parking lot.

    There was a really cool 95 Z71 on 44s though.

    The shaft missing did not cause that to happen. It appears that the lower balljoint broke. It was probably damaged when the yokes grenaded but didnt totaly fail for awhile. On unit bearings the shaft does not support any weight. One of my friends blew a front joint in his TJ while out wheelin so we took the inner and outter shafts out, and then duct taped a wad of rags over the hole to keep the fluid in. He drove it like that for over a month until he was able to afford a new shaft and never experienced any trouble. I garuntee the TJ is wheeled harder than your friends jeep too so my money's on a damaged balljoint.

    yes and no . it does look kind of like a b.j. bad. but any unitized hub bearing setup is in need of somthing holding the bearings together. just consider your self lucky your friends made it 1 month.

    I have nothing against jeeps... In fact i don't mind wheeling with them, they are easy to pull out.


    Barbie called, she wants her Jeep back.

    I got that Jeep thing, Now it burns when I pee.

    Jeep so sisssy, even Barbie had to have one.

    Ok, I'm done Jeep bashing now.
