Default Ugh

I have a question, have you ever been out just messing around for a few minutes wheeling then break something. Well it happened to me tonight, going through a area have been through tons of time but this time a hole comes out of no where. THere goes the front bumber on the cherokee. ugh it upsets me. anyone else have any of these horrable stories?

You mean like getting to the mounds, being there for 5 minutes, breaking every body mount and sliding the whole thing ripping the radiator into the fan?

Bumpers are exterior. Anything exterior is considered 'consumables'.

Like Going to the mounds wheelin for 25 min. Snapping the front axle in half then spending 3 hrs tryin to get the jeep back on the shitty Uhaul rental trailer...
Then spending the next 3-4 weeks replacing parts on the new front axle and swapping new axles in... then taking it back out to the mounds for 25 min and blowing the motor.. then spending 2 hrs sittin there watchin all the other guys... and using a polaris 250 2 stroke quad to pull it back to the pits... (It was an FSJ)
