Coming out of the notches behind the house I managed to cream the front corner.



Then later in a muddy notch between hills was a rock protruding out and caught with the RR quarter.





Beefy over seeing my repair on my steering...

Not really, I am missing a RF bump stop at the moment. My steering is quicker then it was before and with how much easier it turns it will def take some getting used to. I def can say I did some lines behind the house in the rocks that without it I doubt I could of made it through.

Broken 14 bolt shafts that is hardcore. The eb took a pretty good beat down this weekend. Wish you could have got the climb before breaking the shaft

When I broke the RR shaft. You can hear it pop but the tire is hidden in the smoke.

Looks like you guys had a blast. Bummer you broke. I know what it's like. I broke my t-case front output right at the beginning of the big rocks on Mission Impossible. Walked the entire rest of it.
