Well upgraded my steering from chevy tie rods and 1.25" .250 dom to 3/4 heims and 1.5" .250 dom.

Competed in the baddazztruckexpo saturday on the rock crawl, took 3rd in my class with a shitty time, and 4th in the open class.

Decided halfway through the open class run that I wasn't gonna do well so decided I would put on a show for the crowd.

End result was bending the 1.5"


and wrecking my pitman arm.....this arm was horizontal when I started the run.




I gave my "solid" diff cover a hell of a work out....

im still trying to figure out how you didnt break anything. i figure at the very least the bolts holding the box to the frame would have snapped

come to think of it. john might be a good idea to pull the box off and give that whole area a one over to make sure there isnt something thats going to fail at the comp.
