built it big and booger weld it!

Went out to Uwharrie this weekend and wheeled with some buddies. Coming up the trail I was wondering why everyone was stopped. Looked up ahead and saw a Broke XJ blocking the trail. from down the hill it looked like he had busted a knuckle off. But how? There wasn't any kind of obstacle.

Go up to see this:










Apparently the guy hit the brakes coming down this incline and everything ripped loose. not too difficult considering he'd have had better results if he tried to super glue his control arm mounts to the unibody. Hardly any of his welds actually penetrated. and this thing was tagged for road use.

I'm surprised any equipment was still on this thing. It had been sitting there for 5 days according to the park pass.

Hey, Hey, now Booger don't weld like that. Looks like a Lizard dragged his hindparts all over the underneath of that jeep. I'd be afraid to drive something that looks like that.
