    aw man, that sucks!

     

    so did you hit a washout, boulder, or large pack of coatimundi at high speed or what?!?

     

     

    Best I can tell - running Elvis earlier this year.  I believe I bent axle and compromised the bracket then which broke running washboarding (not aired down) on the trip west from Nogales.  I did capture a picture of the jeep at the start of my trip for Nogales and you can clearly see the bent axle.

  3. Injury Report:

    While exploring Guadalupe Canyon and Ruby Mine west of Nogales last week I bent Vaal's driver side axle back and up... and sheared off the track bar on the front.  Had to wobble out to Arivaca, AZ for the tow ride home (Thanks AAA Premium).  

     

    Here's the damage:

    what made you get a new top?

    Two reasons. And One 

     

    1. I wanted the new features of the glide top to ease up/down and window removals. 

    2. The 11 year old top was torn in places, all zippers were jamming and the rear window zipper was flat out broken.

    3. It was a gift from my dad 🙂
