Wrapped my front axle. (Carnage pics)

Here a poser pic of Uncle Blue.











This happen last summer and the pics where lost on my camera phone. What happen is I linked the front, but didn't build an axle truss. Everything worked fine when moving forward, but on this weekend out at Barnwell I was pulling a log out of a trail going backward up a hill when the spot welds on the axle tube broke. Old Goat was kind enough to come out to Barnwell and pull me to the trail head. His rig has a winch on the back and with the pinion pointed straight up in the air rolling the rig wasn't an option. We ran a tow strap under the axle to the cage for the links and pick up the front in of the rig axle and all. I started up Uncle Blue and pushed as Rusty pull me up the exit of Politician.
To keep this from ever happening again I added a "Y" to the center link and add a truss to the front axle of a sort. I had the axle tubes welded to the center piece. Because of the way we pulled Uncle Blue out of the trail my stinger is now pointed more up than before. lol
