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

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..??..??.

Spent several days overlanding thru the Ozark National Forest. The kids drove my '14 and the wife and I drove her '18.
The '18 is a Sport with Teraflex axles (60 rear/44 front) geared with ARB lockers and a 3" lift on 37s.

I think were missing the next part of the video? Is that coil ready to eject?

Nice catch LOL It was one of those iPhone "live pics" that shoots a short burst.
The bottom of the coil is held in by a retainer so I guess it was extended enough to unseat the top then pop back into place.
Good timing :)
