Twisted drive shaft

This is out of a buddy of mine's JKUR. I pulled him out of a steep ravine with boulders with my LJR. Not bragging because I didn't go through it. Had to lock both axles to get him up the bank.

This happened because he got his tire positioned on a rock where the tire couldn't spin. The drive shaft was just the weakest link which was actually a good thing. Easy enough to take shaft out and drive on.
