I had a great time up until Waterfall. I was maneuvering through the filter and had my steering turned/locked full left, was on or between rocks, pressed on the throttle and snap! I managed to blow out the yoke ears on both the driver's side inner and outer axle shafts
. I didn't even feel or hear it snap - I found out via my spotter. Backing out of the filter required multiple pulls forward and pulling the rear sideways with a come-a-long.
I wasn't aware of how expensive these axle shafts were until I was online. I originally was going to replace my shafts with chromoly but when I saw the price, I opted not to. After reviewing different manufacturers and prices, I opted to stick with Spicer
. The part should be in this Tuesday or Wednesday and I'll install it on my next day off
and I'll be ready for another day of wheeling.
chevymad, the Jeep looks good with the Zone lift!
