Maiden mud voyage

Always been into crawlin rather than goin through mud but I was invited to go to a mud bog so what the hell. There were only 3 jeeps there, a grand cherokee with 4in lift, my cherokee with 7.5, and another cherokee with 3in lift in the front and none in the rear runnin 35s. The grand cherokee didnt try it(too nice of a vehicle) the one on 35s tried twice and cudnt make it and mine I made it the first time in 4wd then the second time right at the beginning i broke the straps that hold the front driveshaft to the front differential and had to go in 2wd. I checked the damage this morning and i broke those straps and bent the upper control arms which look weak as piss anyway.

The hole was about 3 feet deep, and with no doors I got muddyyyy
