broken axels on 35's, I think not

I have an 07 2dr with 50,000 miles. 35" KM2's for about 30,000 miles and have been pretty hard on them. Yesterday I went out to intentionally break the axel. Wheeled it like it was an 82 ford that I stole from my cousin. 4th gear low and lockers on every where I went. Up hills and over rocks through mud with rocks mixed in. Counted 4 wheelies, one they said carried the front wheels 4 ft off the ground and slammed it back to the ground. poor little v6 redlined all day. Guys I wheel with thought I was on Meth. Bottom line is that I couldnt break the axel even though I beat the snot out of it. Take that you village whore. 37's here I come

I have a jeep and it goes over shit.

Haha, thanks for testing the limits, better you than me

I went straight to the 37s, so I think I'm gonna be a little easier than that.

Let me have it for a few hours, Ive broke 2 axles and 4 joints in the last 5000 miles. 34" swampers will do the trick on a dana 30.

Sounds fun, but may I ask why? lol
sure breaking an axles not so bad, easy fix. What happens when you whoops and break the housing? then youre screwed lol

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.

i bet right after you put on the 37s and lower the jeep... the axles will snap right in the driveway.

the above is most likely irrelevant.

that would be my luck. actually I think my good luck was used up on that trip. 1 week later I curbed my wifes new challenger and bent 2 wheels and ruined 2 tires. You always pay somewhere

I'm with the "Why" crowd. When I first read your post, I figured you must be getting new axles and just wanted to have some fun. I was kind of surprised to see that you don't plan on replacing them.

So, what's the point of this test?
