    Broken axle. Came in a little hot on a dip broke axle and almost rolled it. Was fortunate.

    You are definitely comfortable in that thing when the wife is wearing flip flops while off roading!

    We really weren’t off roading. We were coming back from breakfast and shot off the road for 100 yards or so.

    We only had our lap belts on and things could have turned out much worse. New rule is no matter what you get in you’re belting completely up.

    Flip flops are the shoe of choice though unless it’s cold....then it’s uggs

    I heard it was a “mechanical failure”?

    If by mechanical failure you mean the driver ran out of talent, then yes, it was a mechanical failure .

    Can you explain how the rear linkage works? Is the little links above at axle for sway?

    And then.
    here comes the snow ball.....

    It started with a broken axle and the need to beef it up and get a new Currie prerunner 9 inch

    And then
    Well with the new axle might as well get bigger brakes for better stoping - more safety is always better....

    And then
    You need a new drive shaft, sway bar, limit straps. Might as well go thru the whole deal with it’s all out and new....

    And then
    Might as well rebuild your shocks, up date the bump stops.....

    And then
    since you rebuilt the rear shocks migh as well do the Frt shocks while your at it, why have New rebuilt rears and Not the frts makes sense

    And then
    LoL

    I hope you get it back up and rolling quick
