Sad day :(

Why would anyone even think about jumping there jeep if it's not equiped for it?Stupid,stupid,stupid etc...

QuadraTokn 05-06-2008 04:02 PM

I dont think that was worth it but luckily it wont be that much for a swap at a junkyard.

ArloGuthroJeep 05-06-2008 04:11 PM

Serves you right...that was pretty stupid. I can only think of one Jeep around here set up for jumping. You aren't that person.

Casper4x4 05-06-2008 04:17 PM

what i do with my jeep is my own business, ya it serves me right and i learn from my experiences ( just like all of us ) and only have an excuse to upgrade to better axles equipped with 4:56 and some lockers.

ArloGuthroJeep 05-06-2008 04:21 PM

:rofl: It is your business...but then you posted it on here for everyone to see? Honestly what did you think would happen?

I think you took my comment a bit too seriously;)

Have you popped open the front diff yet to see what happened? Looks like the pinion gear may have been sheared off which allowed it to be pulled outward like that. Or perhaps the pinion bearings were completely crushed. Odd failure since I wouldn't think much force is applied on the pinion, but instead on the carrier bearings since they are what was most likely bent in the axle tubs.

Casper4x4 05-06-2008 04:48 PM

haha ya i know sorry i am a bit... flustered with what happened and probably took it wrong. I am goin to the junk yard next week to find me a hp30 and a d44 :)

Seems like breakin stuff IS his excuse for upgrades :rofl:

That jump doesn't seem to severe to me.....yes dumb....but im surprised it cause as much damage as it did.

Maybe I'm just naive.....
