Went to Tierra Del Sol jeep safari this weekend did all the easy obsticles in the training area then stepped up to the moderate ones, that place was so tore up from all the people out there and the obsticles were so dug out it was crazy I got hung up on a 4' culvert and was somokin the tires over the pile when bam rear end blew fell back smashed gas tank and skid in I cant believe it didnt bust open front wheel drive back down off the hill and on to the trailer.Still gotta tear it open and see whats up I dont think I broke a shaft still grabs in 2 wheel drive but grinds and only 1 wheel grabs a little.It was stock and I wasnt trying not to break it so not really sad but a little ,at least now I get a upgrade..
It was surprisingly easy to break I thought it was gonna last after all the wheeling in the rocks at the King of Hammers but you only get a couple bounces out of one when your humping a 4' culvert if i get the video from my friend ill post it.
so I popped off the cover and all the little teeth fell right out into the pan theres still 2 left on there so I should be good for a while.lol just kidding looks like I need some new diff gears any suggestions on this Is there a better brand ??Stripped the top gear almost clean and chunked up the side ones a little too ..
Spider gears are cheap and easy to replace. Most 4x4 shops have a box with old spider gears they removed to install a lunchbox locker. No setup is required to install them so if it's an honest 4x4 shop, they won't charge much to install them.
