But I won by a foot! He broke his rear D70. Two full turns on the axle shaft before it popped off. My Mogs just shrugged it off (pretzelled my torque arms but that's another issue). That a good enough comparo for you?
5400lbs? That's light! The Hulk tipped the scales at about 7500 for TTC last year. And ready for camping, plan on an even 8000lbs.Puffdragon said:I never worry about my axles at all on my 5400lbs Mog, and I run trails alot of people would never think about.
