What size tires do you have? Have you upgraded your gearing? Small gears and big tires usually leads to big problems. Have the engine fully check and the underbody for cracks or and slipping in springs or leafs.

He has 35's.

I second the deal with new gears. If they are stock gears I wouldnt take it too far into the woods or mud pits. As long as you dont get too crazy it should be okay for normal driving, but I'd still want to replace them pronto.
