'14 JKUR- Copperhead Pearl

Here's our '14 JKUR in Copperhead Pearl. Ordered new in '14.
3" Mopar Stage III lift with 1" spacer
4.88 gears
Axle truss/gussets
Revolution drive shafts
Falcon shocks
and a couple more things

Preferred wheeling is overland, the Ozark NF is just a few hours away and we've done a few multi day treks thru there. Disney, OK and SMORR are close to us so we do a bit of rock crawling as well.

Here's a few pics from over the years

I like the re-name on the hood.

Our last trip to Disney, OK didn't go very well Passenger rear axle shaft broke on the first ledge, so we spent the rest of the day limping along in 1 wheel drive. Probably not the best idea....
I'm running Revolution 4340 shafts, so far they've been good on the warranty process.

Here's a few pics from the day:

Wow, you sure did snap that shaft. Too heavy on the throttle? Defective shaft?

Good question.
Honestly I'm not sure, had just done this trail a couple of weeks ago with no issues. My rear locker didn't want to engage either, when the shop pulled the shaft they found the magnet lost strength and replaced it. IMO I was giving it the appropriate amount of throttle, but it may have been too much. I think there may have been combined factors at play with the locker and the shaft..??..??.
