Rausch Creek Carnage!
This was a rough day of wheelin for me & ox.
Pretty early on, Ox broke an upper link mount on a hill climb. Later in the day, i broke my D60 completely in half!
So here's what happened.
I had just gone thru Smoothie & Milkshake, RC's nastiest mud holes, when i spotted the housing was cracked. There arent any rocks in those pits, so it must have been coincidence that i decided to look at the front, and see the tube sticking out about an inch. Well, i had a ratchet strap around both radius arms, but it didnt last long....about 1000' later the front-end just fell apart. Probably a good thing i was only idling along in 1st when it happened. A bunch of Toyota guys from Right Coast 4x4 (whom me & ox wheeled with the previous day) helped to get it back together so i could drive it out and get it on the trailer.
As you can see, the passenger inner axleshaft is bent. So is the ring-side trunion on the ARB as well, so we're going to have to replace some parts on that too.
