4wheel low burnouts !!

i know i know its probly the worst thing you can do to your T-case and everything else down the line but i had to try it. i got a little tuft of smoke from a brake launch has any on else ever given in to their temptations and tried it? i was in a if it brakes ill just fix it mood it held together fine... no obvious ill effects. what is the weakest link and most likely to break? T-case chain?

so you were pushing the brakes and the gas at the same time? i would say the weakest link would be the rear axle

Completely stock, and keeping it that way...

err..is this even possible? ud have to be anchored to the ground and be on dirt or a wet/soapy ground to be able to spin all 4 tires. Although i did manage to make all 4 tires loose traction on an up hill at a stop sign on a rainy day...and almost rolled the jeep trying to drift a corner on a rainy day lol good times

Most likely break IMO would be an axle or driveshaft u-joint. Of course there are many things that could explode from such an event including the tcase.

Not possible unless you chained yourself to a large stationary object. And then things might break! The 4.0 doesn't have enough torque to do the job on pavement, even in 4low. More likely to give yourself whip lash then break the tires free.

It's possible to do it, but you shouldn't be on dry pavement in 4wd at all.

My vote is the t-case would be the first to go, fallowed by a u-joint.

A 4.0 in 4-lo has rediculous tourqe, I almost garuntee you I could walk outside and do it now if I wanted to break something, lol.

ive done some 2 low burnouts (front hubs unlocked) i could spin 37's in first and chirp em through 2nd and third.

never done 4 low burnouts on dry pavement but do dry rocks on a steep incline count?

97 xj
44 front, detroit, alloyed
60 rear, detroit, 35 spline alloyed
35" beadlocked km2's

more bells and whistles than you can shake a stick at

There was a video on youtube i can't seem to find. A nice lookin black v8 ZJ was in a big garage chained to one of the support columns, put it in 4hi and floored it. Needless to say he filled the entire shop with smoke, all 4 tires were spinning. Funny to watch, I was waiting for his tcase to just fall to the ground in pieces.
