    I kinda knew something was going to happen but was hoping for the best. It was suppose to kinda jump to the left and go around that tree but oh well. I cant complain. Two driver side u-joints and one pass. axle ear in four hard years of wheeling. After I started welding my joints in on the driver side I quit having problems so really this is my first broke shaft.

    Kinda looking at installing 44's but it's tough to justify. I've spent less than three hours in four years fixing broke axles on the trail and this is the first time I've inconvenienced anyone. I think that's pretty good for stock axles.
