Browns 1-18 run????

Thought there was a group going out Saturday 18th but I can't find the post! Am I losing my mind or just stupid and can't remember where I saw the post?

Was a great day of wheeling. Think there ended up being 3 groups running.

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!

Loved having a bit more clearance and softer ride. Tested the sliders as well yesterday.
