I thought it would be fun to start a thread dedicated to the carnage most of us have seen over the years. To kick things off, here are a few shots of body damage and breaks that Moby has seen. :cool:

Probably one of the worst breaks you can have - a sector shaft, taken out on the Rubicon...

A summer of hard wheeling gave our Spyderlock rings a working and bent our rear axle shaft flanges as well...

If it can be broken, there's a good chance that we'll break it. Shot right after breaking our semi-float ProRock 60 rear axle shaft at the flange on Double Whammy...

As you can see from the ring of rust, it had been failing for quite some time. Perfect excuse to go full-float...

Trust me, there's a lot more than that and if I can think of it and or find pics of other breaks, rock rash and trail damage, I'll be sure to post them up. In the mean time, how about we see some of your pics!!

:cheesy: oh yeah, Trail Bud is the only person that I know of who's been able to break 2 factory dana 44 housings. as luck would have it, i was present both times too :crazyeyes:

on this first break, he was only running 33" tires.

Probably one of the worst breaks you can have - a sector shaft, taken out on the Rubicon...


So there is a good reason for those sector shaft kits that I have seen on the market... I already had it on my list but this just verifies that purchase. Are you running one of those now? I believe I've seen a couple from EVO and JKS.... any thoughts on those two?

wayoflife

It seems to me that the ongoing theme is ring and pinion...:hmm:

Oh, we've definitely seen our fair share of them. The problem comes from running bigger tires, gears with ratios to match and playing on harder and harder obstacles. You just can't make a small ring or even smaller pinion hold up to the stresses that they see. For the most part, the highest ratio I would go in a Dana 44 is 5.13. A 5.38 might be a better ratio to go with when running 37's but, the pinion gets to be real small and if you actually play hard, will be asking for trouble. The same is true with a 5.13 gear on a Dana 30. It's ring gear is already a tiny 7-1/8" in diameter and at this high ratio, the pinion is very small.

In the end, you live and learn and we've learned a lot the hard way. :crazyeyes:

Very interesting thought... I have seen so many thread that talk about what size tire to run with whichever axle... however, I have yet to see the gear ratio mentioned specifically.

Good info to move forward with:thumb:

Yes and no. If you're running really big tires and a dropped pitman arm, maybe. But, you'd really be better off running a ram assist. We weren't running one at the time of the break and still don't now as I really don't think that a brace would have made a difference for us. We're justpushing really big, wide and heavy 40x15.50 tires and it really was more a matter of time for us than anything. Running a PSC ram assist help prevent it from breaking for a long time but, everything breaks sooner or later. I'm just glad that Mel had a spare with him and, we now carry one too. :yup:

Yeah, I see so many of them them too. And, for most people, it probably won't matter but, if they actually played as hard as they say they do, it is something that should be taken into consideration.

Sadly I do not have pictures but the only break I have suffered on a trail is Hydro-locking my engine..... :grayno:.
Its only a matter of time till I do tho, deep down inside I am hoping for the front Dana 30 to fail somehow giving a good excuse to upgrade. :cool:

There are a lot of things you can break on the trail and still get back to pavement with a few trail fixes - a broken sector shaft isn't one of them. You break it and you're up a creek without a paddle, that is of course, unless you have a spare. Changing one out on the trail is a lot of "fun". Took Mel from Off Road Evolution and I both working on it at the same time still took about 3 hours to do. Once broken, the remaining shaft is a real pain to remove especially without damaging the seals or bearings.

Our PSC help keep our sector shaft from breaking for over 3 years so, it did it's job well but, when you keep pushing things, they can and still will break.

Even though I have a Sector Shaft brace I believe I will add a sector shaft to my parts box. Thank you for the idea Eddie.

I had my hard top off all summer and it is a PITA to store it unless you are going to hang it from your garage ceiling. I was so glad to have my space back when I put it on for the winter!

I do enjoy both looks though (soft top and hard top). When I bought the Jeep it only came with the Crush colored hard top. In hindsight I should have gotten the factory soft top too! :thinking:

You can buy a caddy for your hard top that will also hold your doors etc. for about $300-$400 but I had better stuff to spend that on. :thumb:

I really like my hardtop because it kind of prevents break-ins since I park on the street where I live and I love how it looks. Down fall is taking it off and storing it but I was able to build a cart to stand it up and move it around.

In all honesty, a lot of the flops I have seen were on terrain like this. It's always the dumb things that you would never suspect that puts you on your side. When things are really hard, you pay a lot more attention.

I want to thank Eddie for the winch steering video because that's how we got my jeep off the trail. The trails at Evans are very tight so it took about 6 hours to go less than 2 miles swapping the winch line from side to side. It sucked, but we finally made it down to the main staging area parking lot around 10pm. We then had to drive closer into town to get cell service for a tow truck. From breaking to getting home was a 11 hour ordeal.

Not aired down properly and tread getting a little low.

The rock skins are more for grazes against obstacles and can probably take some weight. But when you drop a good portion of vehicle weight onto it, its not going to fair so well. That's where the sliders come into play.

Does insurance cover this kind of stuff or is it out of pocket.

Of course they would. It would be deemed a collision claim and one of the terms they use is "upset" of the vehicle.


You don't want to file an insurance claim for this kind of crap because if they realize that your wheeling your jeep they will jack your rates up

I am sorry but I have to disagree. Being a claims professional in the insurance industry for over 20 years, they are rating you based on your driving record, not because you have a vehicle that has alterations to your suspension. During my career, I have never alerted the underwriting department regarding an altered suspension or anything regarding a lift.

Also, from an underwriters perspective, the rate of injury while off-roading is very low. The speeds are low, the personal injury is minimal, and your chances of colliding with another vehicle is slim to none. In fact, roll-overs, which cause the most injury to the vehicle occupants, are quite rare. It takes a lot for someone to get everything right to roll a vehicle.

Meanwhile, SUV's have become much safer due to vehicle stability systems, so much so that their incident rate has decreased dramatically, resulting is better underwriting rates to the owners and drivers. So really, by driving a Wrangler SUV, your rates are lower than normal.

Drive safe sir.
