There are things that are difficult to break, but someone out there can absolutely do it.

Which run did you break it on? Myself and Greenfeet were there last weekend. There was a few spots where there was mud in places it isnt normally which caused a little bit of a headache now and then.

I broke an Alloy USA Ujoint at Rausch today and bent the shit out of the ears on my chromoly stub shaft. Guess today was just not a good day for axle shafts.

Supposed to be lifetime, no questions asked guarantee. The weird thing was that it broke as i was backing up into a level area so i could run air to someone else. Wasn't on an obstacle at all, wasn't even locked. Must have been damaged from before i guess. Broke my sway bar link again and took out another abs sensor. Then, acting like the idiot that i am, broke a rear chromo again. Think i might need a 14 bolt rear and d60 front.

I have a jeep and it goes over shit.

Not sure very slow easy hill climb no wheel spin, heard it pop thought it was a joint or the new CA's just making noise finished the climb pulled off checked joints, shafts no issues kept going tried a few other hills just didn't feel right. Then lost steering and all hell broke loose!

Ratchet strapped it all back together and drive it out where I humbly waited for a ride!
