John and Cole weren't the only ones making mods to their 4x4s before this trip. Brian had installed new springs and crossover steering from All-Pro and regeared his 4Runner. Everything had worked bitchin' to this point. At the top of that climb, the Toy rolled back a few inches, snagging the front tires. The front suspension was at full droop, and the slight tug at the front tires was enough to pull the front driveshaft apart. And of course, the splines twisted just a tad at the end. Brian filed the slipjoint, shoved everything back together, and motored on.
