    Brave man for posting that pic :banana-mario: No way would I ever admit to that :driver: Like Tyler said, lucky it stopped where it did, you could've been climbing out a window.


    Hey red, my 2wd van gets stuck on grass, how the hell do you manage that with your truck :shrug: hahaha

    No need for suspension of Fords, just bolt the axles directly to the frame and they'll flex like a rock crawler:rolleyes:

    The original g80 grenaded on me at 180k, the good news was it was turning the corner at the end of my street 4 houses away. Thank God, as I was pulling my 16’ tandem axle. With out the couple grand to fix it right, I started the junk yard search for a g80 with 373’s. Found one and it lasted almost 20k then this happened... 04274724-D9F5-49E1-94A6-E717EC0D4234.jpeg


    No trailer this time but it had started making some bad noises, and while decelerating into a left turn lane on a busy 6 lane highway I felt it grinding to a halt. Not wanting to be stuck in this horribly busy and dangerous intersection, I used the front axle to break it loose. Only broke the rear u joint. Was trying to get her around the corner and hopefully into the shopping center parking lot but that’s as far as I made it before the axle slipped all the way out. Local cops thanked me for getting it out of traffic and the AAA guy had a blast getting it on the flatbed.
