sheered front axle - dunning carnage pic

Testing out all the new engine mods in the sand dunes, with updated tunes and stud job. She has a lot of power and we were scooting through the dunes. Front locker on and in a turn, she pop'd. Just thought I would share for fun, I run this truck pretty hard and usually break something. Last time it was the steering setup which i replaced with the ORU hydraulic kit. This time its a front axle, guess I will look into 4130 axles, or maybe bigger, i dunno. Just thought I would share, knew you all would get a kick out of these pics.

I guess thats a good excuse to convince the wife you need a new, bigger, better axle Any more I hate taking my truck off the pavement because I always break something. Brake line, steering stabilizer, my tie rods are shot, and last weekend I smashed into my friends F150. We both turned the same direction without knowing where one another was. We both slammed the brakes but you can't stop too good in soft dirt

Heres a pic of my trucks damage. Heres my excuse to upgrade to some harley headlights and a chrome package billet grille. But I'm still very

Thats a weird break it would seem. Typically the ujoint fails before the axle shaft.

His truck is '05-7 with a coil sprung frontend. The BS and such is different on those trucks from your '04.
