Sheer Stud

I was on the exit road off Affliction at Rausch Creek trail when all five of my rear passenger-side wheel studs sheared off. I wasn’t quite sure why I was so bound up on such mild rock terrain until my buddy following me was screaming for joy because he thought he found a 37-inch MT/R on a Raceline beadlock sitting in the woods. We had to fashion a crane out of a nearby tree using a winch, snatch block, and tree-saver. We tore the rear axle apart and took two wheel studs from the driver-side axleshaft to put on the passenger side to get back to camp.
