I was try to get out a deep creek and all i heard was "clank clank"
The 3rd link is bent down not up so i didn't hit on anything.
I need to check next weekend a see if i didn't mees up my R&P.
The creek was deep almost to the bottom of my doors.
Possible water got into axle, to be honest i have no clue how
it happen yet. I was bounce trying to get out but that part of the driveshaft
should've not broke. U can see in the pic the ujoint is still in the diff yoke.

I have not. But you have to remember, 8th man and Boondox are NOT running stock shafts (or even diffs).

Boon, Was that the front or rear shafts? If it was the front, it doesn't shock me after seeing the upper arm bent like that. That will bind the shaft and your weakest part was the ears on the shaft. One way to prevent that in the future is to run straps and not u-bolts. Though not as strong, they are easy to replace even on the trail.

If you look closely in the first pic it does have straps on the pinion yoke.

A creek crossing, possible picture of the month?
BIG PICS as suggested by 8thMan {click on the photo for bigger}


This somewhat deep creek went to the bottom of my doors.(did not break the x at this creek crossing)



Trying to back up and line up better, my gf got scared, didn't want to
tip it over in a creek.
