  • v8+33's+4wdlow+juniper+asphalt=broken

    this is what happens when you try to pull up juniper trees while in 4 low on asphalt. the stock amc 20 and dana front held. but the drive shaft pretzeled.\
    found the weak link. thankfully i was in the front yard not 30 miles up in the mountains.

      Well it is better than breaking axles or gears though!!!!

      When you get a new one, make sure its heavy duty so you break something else instead nextime!!

      I bet it was fun anyway though, it always is when your braking stuff....

          Jeeps are not made for burnouts...

            I agree, but you build a jeep to handle them.

                    Mine can't burn rubber, the QT allows at the max some drift when the streets are wet...

                            You must have a CV joint also, right? I have a spring over setup with light springs. I haven't noticed any wheel-hop off road but pavement is a different story.
