    Broken Dana 30 pics

    We got this Dana 30 out of a high mileage 1984 XJ a few years back.
    I ran it in the Molly Mule (Red 1988 XJ) and then in the Tweety Jeep (Yellow 1989 XJ).
    I put a lot of off road miles on it without ever having problems.
    Here are the pictures of when she finely broke.



    We just thought it was the R & P until opening the cover.

    I did still wheeled it and drove it back to camp across town after it broke. Maybe that is why it don't looks so well.
