Re: Who has Broken a 14 bolt?
Well, unless you're running 38's, I'd wonder if you need that much beef.
I have not heard of anyone snapping one, just to answer your question.
And as Jim Palmer found out (member of our Jeep Club), ANYONE running 38's is going to get pulled and taped. He dropped back down to 36's to avoid the hassle. Maine is good in some regards, but they don't like large tires. He lives in Norway as well, up near you I think.
BTW, I know where there is a D70 with 4.88 gears in a yard, I think the guy wanted $300. It's complete drum to drum, but boy, is that thing MASSIVE!
