Me recent repair for rear track bar bracket didn't hold. Sheared at axle weld. Also high oil pressure with leak. Getting the JK towed back to GA. Catching a ride with Chris.

That stinks, but it's part of playing the game.

Not what I heard.
Someone told me there's a video floating around of the truck hitting those culverts. Then, a split second later, the sound of horns playing "Dixie".

I managed to bounce off a tree during our night run (and my head off the b pillar  //WTF// , which unbeknownst to me at the time had knocked my front end alignment WAY out of whack. I discovered it come morning. I appreciate everyone's help with the parking lot alignment attempt, but unfortunately it failed.

Thankfully, there was a Firestone about 30 minutes away that could get it lined back up. Big thanks to @kvom Kirk for letting me put my rig on his trailer to run it out there. Saved my ass.

The tree also broke my stock side mirror and fender, but that is/was the least of my worries.

That was my first night ride and I gotta say that was damn good fun regardless the outcome.
