Broken Jeep Front Wheel

This guy in a mild YJ deserves a pat on the back for working hard and getting his Jeep this far up a tough and slick trail. The bad news is he eventually broke a front U-joint and the ears popped the ball joints out of the Dana 30’s knuckle. Poop. Also we understand wheeling on a budget, and occasionally, we too overlook some aspects of vehicle maintenance, but we noticed that the Jeep had only three loose lug nuts on more than one of the wheels. That’s bad.
