Wait who broke what in the Bronco group?
Wow, that's one more rig than I thought! Mark busted a birf (Mark chime in?), and I think Adrian did too. I thought I blew my PHH, but it turns out it was a loose coupling that blew coolant everywhere, then stopped. Sheesh, maybe we should have called this Bad Karma Run! Either way, it was a blast, and the scenery was breathtaking.
Smart man!!I'm actually annoyed with myself that I misdiagnosed the problem. I really should have stayed to see the birf repair- never seen one, and it's kind of a must have skill when out on the trail.
Knowing your axles/ seeing others repair their axles is a HUGE benefit on the trail!!
If you're wheeling pretty regularly, it's only a matter of time before its YOU!!
Everyone has their day of being "that guy"!
What makes the difference is how you handle it and how prepared you are for the task. The best practice is always safely in your garage or looking over the shoulder of a friend/ fellow wheeler vs. a crash course on the trail.
Well, my story ain't over yet... We'll see soon enough what the rest of the damage is. I noticed gouges in the metal of the rear drive shaft and think that's where the trouble is. Probably from when I turtled the rig then sat and spun...
