    This happened when I was driving down the road. Didn't hit anything, no pot hole no nothing, not even a bump.

    I see alot of broken shit, but seeing how the sheet metal is wrinkled leads me to belive the LB was the cause of the rest of the breakage.

    Helped tow a Jeeper out who had the same thing happen on the trail (altho his was due to pure stupid not pure randomness) and we took a 3-4 inch dead tree and lashed to to the bumper, frame, and lower suspension parts that were remaining and towed it out on that...

    Def lower ball joint failure. The parts in the red squares should be together, not sperated like the picture shows. Unless that's the upper ball joint socket, either way you should get the idea.

    It's possible, but not likely if you weren't in 4wd. When something like that breaks, everything goes wrong:(. I hope your truck is ok.

    You have the upper ball joint socket marked. The lower let go, and when it came down, it yanked the upper out.
