    Step 1. Attempt to crawl the obstacle slowly.

    Step 2. Hammer down when Step 1. clearly isn't working.

  2. Nice work there Joel. Takes a tremendous amount of force to do that. How'd you get home?

    Should buff right out! Good thing is the axle went and not the rear end itself. Simple trail side repair.....If you have all the right parts

    You should have taken some of the weight out of the Jeep Joel. Maybe it was just overloaded. HAhAhahahaha. It sure looks like you know the limits now.

    Back up, take a run at it.  Count your wheels.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    I carry spare axle shafts with me just for such an occasion. [​IMG]


    Try it with the Tahoe tonight. [​IMG]
    It's part of the game. Luckily[​IMG] didn't go with.


    Had spare shafts with me. Although taking a locker out and putting it back in is much easier to do in the driveway.


    Have you ever thought about applying for Last Comic Standing Mark? [​IMG]



    Exactly.

    2 seconds of glory followed by 2 hours of laying in the dirt getting oily and greasy. [​IMG]

    When I was younger getting oily and greasy was a lot of fun?

    Doing that out in the middle of nowhere added a little adrenaline to the mix.  LOL

    Good luck and good smoking.

    Joel are these stock axles? We had good luck in our modified with Mark Williams axles when we had to run ford 9 inch rear ends. Thank god we got to change to full floaters years back.

    They aren't stock axles for a Jeep, besides the locker and diff cover they are stock for a '94 Ford Explorer. Some high pinion 9's would be a nice addition to the old Jeep.

    I avoid mud like the plague. Not much fun to clean up.
