The front driveline broke and beat your oil pan and tranny pan up? Need some more details!

I was just driving down this back country road, minding my own business......



















Driveshaft decided to let go out in the dunes..........while slamming into every thing on its way out, right before it wedged itself in the 4-link and jack the transfer case to crack right in half......made for one of the most memorable weekends in a long time


But at least the truck can be fired up now, oil pan is welded up.....trying to locate a good t-case and it will be at least road worthy again, but as for now she is just sitting and waiting

That sucks! One bad thing about the 4-link it is easy to bind up that front driveshaft at full droop.

No no no.....when the driveshaft spun around it wedged itself in between the upper and lower links, instantly cracking and breaking the t-case

Well I guess if you're gonna break something at the dunes, do it big or don't do it at all
