I was driving down the side of the rail road tracks with a buddy and had to cross the tracks so stopped put it in low and AWD and crawled over the tracks at a 45 degree angle, drove a little farther and had to cross them again. I did the same as before but this was the result. I had to drive it about 200 ft to get to the nearest road busted like this. A piece of the lower arm broke off from driving to the road.

Just looking at that hurts.

Guess there is a reason they tell you to stay off the tracks:wink-new:

That's not good. Looks like your axe cv when out too. Wonder what failed 1st. I think the drive train is too noisy and should be designed better.

You know its a Federal offence to be on railroad tracks or property and the fines are hefty. The only place your legally allowed to cross is at road crossing but you still must watch for trains.

UPDATE, turns out it is 100% operator error, went back out during the daylight and did some recon of the scene and yep, ran into something that I did not see.
Thanks for the update on that...it was certainly making me reconsider my choice

Yes its the railroad track. Its illegal to be on the property or rails under FEDERAL LAW. Fines can start at $5000. Keep off the tracks.
