woops, cut if off too short.
u-bolt swap in the rear, the old ones were so ratty and twisted they were really ready to go. was cutting old u-bolts off, had the jeep on stands, and the jack under the rear diff. Well, the rear stand on PS side failed, when that happened the spring plate went zooming off to the side, and the leaf spring set went down. I was sandwiched in the wheel well, the body and tire were the slices of bread, I was the meat and cheese. I was stuck, left shoulder was all that was holding the tub up preventing me from getting squished further. Made sure I got a good grip with my boots on the ground, and called for help, neighbor heard me and ran in to get my wife. She immediately called 911, then I was starting to get light-headed and my muscles were starting to cramp. My wife heard me saying it's getting harder to breath, and she in all her viking might lifted the body with the help of a couple neighbors and I was able to slide out, seconds before the police and fire dep. showed up.
Tossed the old jack stands, weren't going to trust any of them anymore, got a new set, a new floor jack, and a new creeper today, and decided I'd take a break from the jeep for the rest of the day. Bruises and a little dizzy, but it could have been worse.
The thing is, that even though I was being crushed by the jeep, I was still looking at the axle and brake lines, thinking of my next mods and improvements, just can't get away from it, jeeper fo life.
