    I think your problem was too much traction. With larger than stock tires in low range there is a lot of torque put on all of the parts. Something is going to give.

    When I went up my tires were spinning. Less traction equals less force on axles, gears, trans...

    Maybe airing down and crawling up is the right idea, who knows, its still gonna be a lot of force on the drive train.

    Yes 4lo. Ya and all the weight was on the rear at that angle, it happened when the back hopped and came back down and grabbed.
