Pretty sure there is no 4" lift/33" mudder combo in the whole damn country (china that is- been there).

China can't even make simple doggy treats without consequences. So why are we forced into using inferior parts that can fail catestrophically? :confused: Somewhere there must be a politician that knows the true answer to that. :mad:

Ronnie, front axle shafts werent in as the differential gears werent installed yet, we are still in the process of putting 4.10 gears in. We thought maybe that was what caused it to fail, but after looking at the axle shafts, and the fact that they are free floating in the differential, we decided i didnt royally screw things up and cause this accident. the axle shaft bolts up to the inside race of the wheel bearing/hub, so if they had been install it would have just pulled the shaft out of the axle and caused that much more damage. It was just part failures.


The stub axle nut fixes/holds the pre-load on the bearing. Many of these bearings fail because installers over torque the stub axle nut. You erred by not installing at all, and the assembly just fell apart.

My neighbor is a jeep Guru, ASE master tech, Specializes in Jeeps, When I ran this by him after my first post he just laughed. I will not repeat the rest of what he said. The stub axle does exactly what I said, Not China's fault. Fortunately you got lucky that most of the damage was done to your pride,That will heal in time. Glad to see no one got hurt, This could have been much worse if you had made it to the hi-way.
