Yet More Damage

The last trip of the year to Field and Forest has traditionally been the major breaking point of the year for the jeep.

Last year I sheared the teeth off in my steering box, forcing me to upgrade to full hydraulic steering. Breaking things are almost a blessing in disguise in my experience. For example then I broke my steering box last year, it allowed me to move onto the next step of the build, which was upgrading the steering  and lowering the jeep 4 more inches since the steering gear box would not be in the way any more.

Lets hope that this prove true with this break…

Yet another broken rear driveshaft, this time cause by the rear output yoke of the NP231 failing.
