It was all internal. I can show you what it would look like though....

The thread on fjcruiserforums.com pretty much states one is lucky to break it before the warranty is up. THe replacements should be better.



OR



Broke a driveshaft ear off my father in law's Chevy 2500 HD towing this thing up to the Toyota dealer also. It was just it's time... Made it the last 12 miles in front wheel drive. Had to call a tow truck for 2 sockets and a rachet. I had just removed the parts from the FJ before taking it up. DOH!

Don't like Dunning Toyota of Ann Arbor, but that takes some more explaining.

It was a hole in that person's pic...






I've offroaded with this guy in Ocala, FL (not Hardrock, but a secret location)... There's some vids on my Youtube of it. His FJ looks like a salvage vehicle. Completely beat to hell.



Here's the outside of the 3rd member (not mine):

14 is under ideal conditions. I bet less than that on average. Probably barely above an H2.

I should add that I've added tons of weight and the 9 inch lights up top REALLY don't help.

I weighed the vehicle at around 5280 and the curb weight is suppose to be 4290. Perhaps I'll recheck that the next time I visit BH.
