Had my first experience with snow wheeling yesterday, which turned into the worst break I've had on the trail. Broke my sector shaft
I was trying to climb an ice covered hill and grabbed a dry spot got traction which pulled me into the berm/tree root and pop. Wheel speed was definitely the culprit in this case, but there was no chance i was crawling up this thing.
It looks like theres a little rust on the bottom right side, so I'm thankful it happened here and not on the road.
Rigged up the sling to the knuckles and this badass little liberty pulled my ass out
Made a phone call to a buddy and he was nice enough to pick me up. He just got this set up and let me tell you this 450 pulls like an absolute beast. Could hardly tell the jeep was behind us.
All in all it was a good day, the guy in the liberty got me to the parking lot and then we wheeled in his jeep the rest of the day. And my buddies little YJ he bought for a grand was a little animal out there. He welded up the front and rear and that bitch went damn near everywhere.
At this point i figure Ill just pony up for the PSC hydro assist kit. I need to get a new pitman arm as well, as we unable to get the busted shaft out and the splines are all chewed up anyways. I have a stock drag link, you guys think i should just upgrade now as well?
