So this last Friday made it up to k2 to meet my buddy and hopefully do some wheeling. No problems during the tow which was nice considering the 5 hr drive or so. So off the trailer I followed my buddy evidently backwards I believe through cyclops. We honestly were gonna just check out the courses werock laid out. Well going down I guess I took a bad line laid on its side and reversed out. Went forward again but heard a pop and then a full bang lol. Yup broke the short side dana 44 inner outer and ujoint. Appears the joint broke taking out the inner ears and the chromoly outer somewhat held. I also twisted all the splines....

15 mins in and I was done. Winched out and drove back to camp in 3 wheel drive...took it out and proceeded to try to find shafts and a joint but no luck anywhere ugh...it was more.lack of maintenance than anything..oh well. Next day we watched some of the we rock comp and then peeled away to eat. We decided we had more people we knew at wolf caves to wheel with so we packed up my buddies rig and went to wolfs. We wheeled his rig rest of the day and I just rode along. Just after dark we broke his truss at the bottom of the backside of Finleys...forget the name and left it to recover on Sunday lol. Next day we drove mine out welded up the truss enough and packed up and got home. Anways...here are some pics.
