Yup, bend the driverside end of the tie rod back in June, then my girlfriend was wheeling it at Rausch Creek in November, picked a bad line and decided to support most of the XJ's weight on the tie rod....
June '08 - My friend went end-over, as he was off the ground I stopped paying attention to what I was doing and just watched the rig go over, and ran into a boulder, putting the first bend in it.
November '08 - Neither front tires were touching the ground:
Definately weren't easy hits, my g/f hit that rock last month pretty hard, and when I hit it in June I was moving pretty well as I wasn't paying attention and was on flat ground not knowing there was anything in my way.
I like the Currie so far, has taken good hits and never bent. I found another Currie for only $175, only used for a few months, perfect shape, so I bought it. Figured that a deal like that was hard to pass up.
