    Well not long into our journey to meet Jerry(JK5) and hed to Wellsville I had problems. The seal shield on the yoke of my 12 bolt came loose and started making all kinds of noise. We cut it off on the side of the road and pressed on. Finally we met up with Jerry and made our way to Wellsville.

    Had a good day of wheelin.. Could've used some more rocks but we dont know our way around very well.
    As for carnage, I flopped on my side which dented a 1/4 and front fender/inner fenderwell. Also mashed my core support and a small spot on the hood.... Jerry bent a rear driveshaft and no one else had problems.

    Here are some pics:

    [/ QUOTE ] Thanks. Most of them I didn't take so I cant take all the credit. Wish I would've charged my camera so I could have gotten some rock garden and waterfall pics!

    Wow, rocks are so destructive. I can't imagine ever doing to my truck what was done to that driveshaft. I'd be so mad.

    It kinda took the wind outta my sails...for the day...
    BUT....I had a spare shaft handy...
    so getting home wasn't an issue...
    Actually....the shaft I bent....was causing my truck to vibrate...so the ride home...was better than the ride to Wellsville... /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    I'm looking for some 3/8"th tubing...so I can make a tougher shaft!!! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
