Noo stuff.. there I was... axle tubes deep in a wash-out trying to get over that silly innocent little tree root. Little did I know, the root was expertly trained in the dark arts of spider gear demolition; knowing exactly how to strip all the teeth off of only the idler gears of the all powerfull and indestructible Dana 35 rear axle.

Ok so it was the first time I ate an axle. Fresh first time on the trail larger tires 2" more lift and of course, most importantly, larger testoterone containers in the form of a brand new winch securely mounted to the front bumper of my buddy's jeep. I was unstoppable. Belive it was the first time I found where my rev limiter was, too!
Anyway tried everything, lil' e-brake, refill the holes w/reverse(yea right), everything xcept the new winch. Finnally, after applying a coating of fresh sticky rubber to the root, got traction and jumped over it. The rear was still a lil' semi-restrained with the E-brake and went from weeeee to woahhh; just like that with a thunderus "KLUNCK---GRRRRRR"





With my testoterone containers mashed, and with only front wheel drive; I surprisingly managed to quite easily reverse off the trail and make it all the way home about 45 mi and lick my wounds. This is where my carnage journey begins!

More to come!
