    I have ran the trail a few times but could not keep my left front tire up on the rock this time. I slipped off the rock and wedged the truck like it shows. I tried backing up but my roll cage was hooked on a rock!!

    The wife will usually stay in the truck for most obstacles. She gets out when it is on its side

    Looks like it was fun while it lasted. Good luck on getting it fixed quick, and back out there!

    Nice! Thant is the exact spot that my buddy Bear shell his front Yota diff...with only 10 miles on the new gear set, locker and R&R. Tire bound up the same way, everyone was giving him conflicting information (way, way, too many 'spotters'. I would have told everyone to just the **** up and designated one person to spot), he got pissed because he was stuck and nailed it too hard. Pretty much winched up the rest of the trail.

    Did you get turned around somehow and manage to get out the short way or winch the long way. Impressive blowing up the Dana 60 axle. Just shows that it can be done with determination. I have seen about 6 so far go...

    I carry a pair of axel shafts for just that reason. The only bad part was that I did not pack any tools in the Blazer so I had to carry them back up the canyon. I had it fixed pretty quick and drove the rest of the trail.
