who put the voodoo duck on you this time ? Andy I don't think you should be doing anymore mod's to your Jeeps ! it just doesn't seem to work out for ya. maybe you need to send them to Blaine to do your mods for you.

thats the same axle you had trouble with last fall. it should still be under warranty. maybe you can send it to Blaine and get it replaced.....

Somewhere between the above picture and the below one, is where it lt go. Sounded like a .22 going off and I knew what happened.

@AndyG is this the one your running the @Wranglerfix tune in ? if so I'm beginning to rethink my wanting to run it in mine ! If it's adding so much power that it's breaking axles he might have to detune it a little :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Nope, that’s my LJ- but it might make one a hair touchy for technical stuff.

I felt the difference when wheeling on a steep dirty rock obstacle after raising my shift points about 1200 RPMs at lower throttle percentages. But, that's an extreme RPM jump...for example, I don't shift from 3-4 until 3250 @ 25% throttle or 3700 at 35% throttle bc that range plays nice with the turbo. This resulted in the throttle being more sensitive (less heavy).

I almost guarantee Mark's tune didn't raise the RPMs even near half that.

In the end, you'd simply need to adjust yourself to the lighter throttle, which might not even be noticeable with his tune's shift points.

It's pretty messed up that the seller took your hard earned money and in turn gave you an axle that was weaker than stock. No way should you have snapped an axle doing what you were doing...especially when it was wet. That's similar or worse than having a Dana 35 out there.

Good news is that you made it off the trail and got it home.

It was Andy's Jeep, not sure the 10 factory axles are tough so I have heard.

Where he was going up the rock was steeper than it looks and I figured his tires were spinning and the left got traction and that's when the axle broke.
