ZJ Dana 30 cv failures

I'm looking for info on Dana 30 CV shaft failures.
Please post up whats happened.

I'd like to know the following,
Long side or short side?
Were you turning when it failed?
Left or right?
What was the traction like? asphalt? snow? mud? rock? rain? ice?
What size tire was on the truck at the time of the failure?


Thanks,

You know the funny part, the guys around me, up here in NY/VT believe they are stronger and smoother than a regular X-760 u-joint set-up for the Dana 30 with a lunchbox style locker. I've seen them wheel and they do fine, do I believe they are stronger? No, but I've been wrong before.

Saw the same guy break his twice. Long side, easy on the skinny with an automatic, in the rocks (Rubicon, so not easy, but not extreme), 32" tire, dunno for sure about turning, but I think so...
