    Let's start a post with some pics of breakages, dents, scratches, broke windows, etc...anything that you're proud or ashamed you broke. Even if it's not a pic of the actual damage, post a pic of your rig (or someone elses) on whatever may have caused it and let us know about it... (Rummage is probably winning for now...)

    Most I've broken so far...knock on wood. Busted radiator at the second ledge of Daniel. Nothing a little electrical tape couldn't fix

    Rummage claimed he didn't have any pics of the Windrock trip disaster, so I'll help him out...on literally the last day...last trail...last rock...take note of the progression.

    Tire looks funny...

    Besides body damage, I can only remember 3 different "breaks" on my rig

    First was my frankenstein front driveshaft at URE. Go to the 8:30 mark to just see the breakage...


    Second was the passenger steering arm studs of my d44 (see picture above in post #6). 2 sheered off, had to take one out of the driver's side and put in the passenger side, drove it to camp at URE, called my brother to bring a rollback and get my junk home....FYI - ARP studs have been installed now. From 6min to 8min is getting it fixed, 8:30 to the end is getting it loaded & ready to be taken home.


    3rd was my passenger side ball joints & u-joint on trail 15's rock garden (I think trail 15's notch stressed it). Moog ball joints & chromo shafts are installed now.

    The wall at The Flats cost me a rear axle and a detriot locker. But you always have to look at the sunny side, I wanted to upgrade my axles any ways, so now I get to do so.

    Looking into my options;
    I can either do a Solid axle swap like brandon (~$3k), a 4" sub frame drop (~$800 including work hours), or a 2" suspension lift ($725 without work hours)
    Either way i go, i would end up paying about $1.5k - $2k on tires and rims.
    Also, if anyone has any spare WJ Coils that might fit my pathy, I could really use some!

    "What's making all that racket and why am I not getting fuel to the engine???"

    oohhh, I see now...

    Fuel pump wiring was just a little nicked and I just shoved this back in it's connector and taped it up. Good as new after that.

    Remember kids, make sure your bumpstops are actually functional, rather than let the shock bottom out over and over until this happens :D Got lucky I didn't snag any actual fuel lines.
