Went out to Rio Puerco a couple weekends ago and the Monday after this happened on I-40 heading home.

Fuuuuuuuu. Were you real aggressive or just a build up over time?

A friend of mine took a ride down spine back out there about 2 months ago in an old 64 scout. Lost control & when he got to the bottom he did a nose p[lant into the sand, the rear end came up & slammed down hard. It sheares the shock bolts off the rear end housing & brike the pinon. The good thing was that the old scouts could disengage the rear & run front drive only so, with a little pull up the hill, he was able to get out & drove home.
I wish the JK had that option. Front digs would be fun.
The Puerco / Kings Ranch is great fun but.....

Im guessing it was just build up over time, I mean I was doing al the basic trails on puerco. Poor jeep just needed new parts on her. New T-case and rear driveshaft coming in next week! Be ready to hit the trails again!
Overall pricing on the parts was $1695.. with Old Tcase core charge which i highly doubt theyll give me te full amount.

I have a stock speedo sensor if your interested ..? I just did d 44s with 488, sye and pro comp shaft. My t-case had bent output shaft a few messed up gears inside nothing that bad. So I upgraded but the speedo is good if you need stock one you can have for $5
