On the way back we saw a Jurassic Park Jeep YJ which made me feel even worse!
I mean I could have brought the Ranger, if JP makes it look to easy:p

Just found this bit of damage last night. Can’t believe it held up like this while pulling another rig on the trail too, and then no vibrations on the 350 mile drive home.

That's impressive. When I ran the Rubicon, my rear drive shaft had a slight barber pole groove towards the axle side. Not nearly as deep as those.

This is very premature, but I had been working on the 3-link design for a while and decided to take advantage of the 3 day Labor Day weekend and have everything cut out ahead of time so I could weld it all up. I spent a full day forming everything and tacking it all together, and 2 full days welding.

Also finally got a new driveshaft, but it has a larger yoke than my old one and would have hit the gas tank, so I took care of that issue.

No, that would make the links only like 18" long haha. The brackets at the front of the trailing arms are the frame side mounts. Also I don't know why the pictures are in such a random order.

What does this hose connect to underneath the upper intake manifold? That's the canister purge valve that the elbow comes off of. I have a check engine light on and P0455 code, Evap Emission System leak and I'm thinking that broken hose is the culprit. Replaced the purge valve, the fuel vapor hose that was rotted out, and the gas cap, and noticed this damaged hose afterwards. It drives like normal so I haven't worried much about it, but I have to smog it in a couple months. I can't find this hose online anywhere.
