Well, i just had something interesting happen to me! As i was driving home from the Steelers game this week, the connector for the front drive axle that connects it to the power transfer unit shattered
Was just driving down the highway when it happened. Not sure what would have caused it. I did have one person tell me that it was because i had it in 4wheel drive in the rain (not in during accident), but i was going straight and would turn it off before i would make a turn.
I tell you what, i hope that was not the cause of it because it sure made a huge difference in my sticking to the road! Oh well it is under warrenty!
Any Ideas?

I believe the owners manual says to avoid using FWD at speeds over 55 MPH. I have also heard some guys say that the front drive shafts are not the highest of quality. I never broke a front drive shaft, just the chain in the transfer case. I always use FWD for a competitive edge. Dan

Holy crap dude!

I throw mine in 4HI in the rain for sh*t's and giggles all the time. I hope mine don't bust.

I know I've abused mine much worse on some of them rough and rocky mountains ballz to the wall compared to me jamming it in the rain.
