Most damage?

What's the most damage any of you all have done do your ol' jeeps?

So far for me I've just gotten a little body damage and broke the lower control arm off of the axle

Flop on the side, $7500 in damage in about .25 seconds... Good times!

EDIT: LOVE my insurance guy though, they covered it even though it was off-road!

Moved to General to elicit more conversation.

Personally for me: Tires, rims, shafts, driveshafts, (think I currently have a bent D30), unit bearings, Motor Mounts, body damage, gas tank, transmission etc...

Saturday I peeled back my license plate mount on the back, wanked my back flare, cracked that stupid piece of plastic that you take off for rockers, destroyed the bead on my front tire, and smashed in my muffler. All minor and all well worth it.

Dishpan, through the Pinnacles, Cleghorn to the 15. I took a little more daring lines this time and paid for it, but dang it was fun getting my little shoes in the bigboy prints.

The worst break I have had was a long time before I got the tow rig and trailer. I went wheeling with a a friend and his family along the Verde River. Great camp spot and on the way out we got to playing on different lines. Well the rocks broke that I was on and it pulled both the drivers side ball joints apart and broke the front axle. It took a while to get it back together and limp it home.

In Moab on my first trip SOA on 35's with an 8.8 in the rear and a traction bar again no tow rig or trailer. First day spun the 8.8 rear tube. We worked for two days just to get it so I could drive it home. 6 degree shim on one side a 2 degree on the other. When I got home I bought the tow rig and trailer.

tried to pull a blazer out of mud in reverse. {friends told me to do it and i didnt know better}

broke reverse shaft, then when shifting for second the pieces from reverse destroyed 2nd gear.


results, new 70,000 mile tranny, new clutch, new flywheel.

cost me $1,750 that i now owe to my parents and at $6/hr will be a long pay off.

My damage

On my first trip with my jeep I got stuck in mud, burned out my clutch, fried the starter and got a flat tire (somehow). Hasn't seen the road/trail since. I've replaced the starter and she runs, but won't move without a new clutch (at least I think that is the problem???)

YJ slid down a muddy hill into a tree and rock combo. Not only did it result in me getting an AJ's man. glass front end (and a weekend off work to put it on), I also got a ticket for an expired ORV sticker...
