Just had some front and rear tube fenders put on so I thought I would test them out at Indy.

Goods:
-no axle breakage
-made it home safely
-trail was pretty empty

Carnage:
-pressure switch ARB compressor
-Currie tie rod shaped like a rainbow
-first confirmed flop by yours truly
-driver side door surround hosed
-one huge dent on the tub
-lower control arms hosed
-upper control arm mount screwed


My sincere thanks to the "Avenger 4x4" group that helped push my rig over after the flop.

Damn Jason, that's exactly why my Runner will never even get close to that place. The one break looks like it's been ripping for a while. Good luck getting it back on the trails.

-Currie tie rod shaped like a rainbow

A 30 ton press will straighten that out. BTDT.

Sweet -- RIGHT at the weld -- looks like it started a while ago by the rust there (and that little peening on the rear edge)http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g218/mpmoe2002/Indy7May06002.jpg

Thanks for the photos! Sounds like a great ride!

Are you running rear leafs spring under on the rear of that TJ? Is that a TJ with leafs or YJ with round lights? Nice pics btw -

TNT Customs sells a truss that would replace both upper control arm mounts that are massive compared to the stock mount. I am running there truss on my rig and love it. That would probably the best fix for your problem.
