    Have you broken your factory Dana 30?

    Have you broken your factory Dana 30 and if so, how did you do it? What was your set-up when it broke? What were you doing?

    If you have not broken it, what is your current set-up with it?

    Chewed up my passenger side shaft on a trail. My tire was wedged pretty good between two rocks
    35's, open diff, 3.21's
    Put some alloy usa shafts in now and they're holding up pretty good

    Yes. Was trying to climb some rocks and the trail was pretty rutted out by buggies. Wheel got stuck in the rut while trying to climb this big ass rock. Broke front passenger side u-joint.

    33's, open front & back, 3.73

    If I would have been locked in the front and 35's I don't think it would have broke. Still running stock shafts.

    35s and all stock up front except for 5.13 gears. Should likely do some gusset/truss work before I hurt it, but... It's good so far.
