I would nominate myself but I don't think I've ever broken any parts.

Jewgoat starting the end of life for whitey. Bombing down the main road and he was distracted by a butterfly out the drivers window.

DPD. I would like to see someone try and duplicate this. Notice how perfectly parallel the intruding objects are to each other.

I will nominate Binder. I don't have any pictures but I know he snapped a front 60 tube and broke his front Detroit. I'm sure there's lots more.

Loomis isn't intentionally hard on stuff, but one that comes to mind is ripping the rear Dana 60 out from under his FJ.  Scenario went a little like this:  Night run at elbe, may or may not have had some road sodas, side hill climb with a tree to pivot around, neutral drops, under cut bank/tree root, rear truss ripped completely off leaving the rear axle about a foot to one side.   With a little brute force and ignorance, drove out under its own power.  

Todd should know this obstacle pretty well.   I'll try to dig up some pictures.

Don't forget the other trackbar he broke, and rumor has it another "sceptor" shaft bit the dust this past weekend...

I'll track down pictures later, but I can think of 2 broken 60 knuckles, 60 detroit, 60 front housing, fire at moon rocks, couple of 727 transmissions, Klune-V, dried up wheel bearings on Kaner, fire in the driveway and???  Problem is its all years old, so does I don't know if that's nomination worthy.  And if you divide the breakage by the number of huge number of trail miles covered its a pretty low average, so it doesn't really stack up that well against the guys who ball up their junk everytime they take it out. :rtfm:

ya i think floorit is a hands down winner on this

I seem to have a reputation, but competitions and burnt rig recoveries aside I can't remember ever going home broke or even really having to turn a wrench on my jeep on the trail.

Compare that to going wheeling with a group like Phantom 309, JewGoat, The Punisher, and DPD(when he used to wheel).  You KNOW before you leave that someone is coming home with 3 wheel drive, on a strap, broken frame, blown up transfer case, busted glass, or something else you can't even imagine.  Now THAT is hard on equipment.

Pre-Jeep days:
trashed rag joint = scout left over night
Bent leaf spring = scout left over night
Broken leaf spring = drove home with duct tape
Broken brake line = finished day on rear brakes only

Of course these are all in the days when we were less prepared and not as Mcgyver-esk.

It counts. He's nominated. We'll just have to let the users decide what thier definition is.

I strongly disagree with this. In fact I feel the opposite. I am very easy on my equipment. Sure I have some dents but I drive slow and easy most of the time.  Other than working out some bugs when I first built my Jeep I have always got back out under my own power. This weekend the tires weren't really my fault. Todd was the one that mounted the beadlocks. :2guns:

It's just that when you do break, it's usually in spectacular fashion. Honestly I don't even know how your engine holds together. Do you duct tape your foot to the accelerator pedal?

Rumor confirmed today......something about gently going over a log.

Does anyone have pics of his transfer case from last year, or him flopped over in his own driveway?
