    Just not sure if the good luck or bad luck is winning.

    Glad you found it in the driveway not in Death Valley.

    I now have one more thing to worry about, but with my rock hard skids it won't be as easy to check.
    Agreed on all points.

    Sounds like at a minimum blue locktite would have been your friend

    Are you going to have to pull the transfer case to replace the broken stud?

    Yes. The broken one is on top and the least accessible of the six. I probably will just replace them all, as the others could be fatigued. Removing the transfer case, although a pain, will make replacing the studs 1000% easier. Unfortunately I wonít be able to get them until next week, but Iíll probably get the transfer case out this weekend unless it rains.

    Ya know, i probably would have taken the risk and done the Death Valley trip this weekend if I could have gotten those five tightened. But there are at least two where the stud backed itself out so far as to contact the opposing flange (shown the photo above). Thereís no easy way to screw the studs back into the transfer case, at least with the case in the Jeep. Oh well. Maybe Iíll reschedule for March 16-18, when the wife will be out of town and the kids have a three day weekend.

    Well, with the potential weather we may be having the next few days, it's probably a good idea to postpone anyway.

    WOW, I'd say crazy good luck... It's a good thing you spend time under your Jeep, It says a lot about going over your Jeep.

    So much better than finding out in Moab

    Definitely. I would recommend that anyone who wheels should get under their rig on a regular basis and check stuff like this.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
