what is the worse thing that ever happen to your jeep/s?(but not totaled)

Went drivin with a few friends, and we were going down a no maintence road. A 35lb box of chains was airborn and I started hearing a Clunking noise coming from around the first piston and it turns out I dented the hell out of the oil pan so badly it was hitting my piston bearing.

98% of people when they are about to go into the ditch say "oh shit!" The other 2% are Minnesotans and when we are about to go into a ditch we say "Hold my beer and watch this shit!"

My battery died once and some water leaked through my soft top during the hurricane season. It took a while for that to dry because I have carpet. Luckily that's as bad as it gets for me lol.

2 Winters ago a huge tree crushed my cj-5 in the middle of the night. It could have been worse,my scrambler was parked next to it,thankfully it only suffered a few dents,and a windshield from the branches. But the cj-5 was crushed, destroyed the tub.

81 year old lady hit me head on. Bent the front axle and other things.
no body damage though, thank god for the lift.
On a positive note. now have a front dana 44 w/ locker- rear 8.8 w/ superior axle, teraflex high steer. and was able to do this with my wifes permission. After you do all that you have to replace the tires, to bigger, my wife said so on went the 35's.
And yesterday she told me she loves driving the jeep again "it now has balls." Thanks to the 5.13 gears.
That was only a two month headache for such a great out come.
