Broke my wheel off...no joke.

Tuesday was a said day. In the snow in 4 wheel @ about 5 miles and hour I got caught on the ice during a turn and hit the curb...My passenger side right rear broke off with only the break line holding it on and jammed up into my wheel well flaring out my finder like a baha truck. I was able to limp off of the road because my front was still engaged. Even tore off my leaf spring. insurance says 5000 bucks...my deductible is a 1000 bucks...no more SC no more 3rd CAI...the collision place said that is the 3rd dodge ram around that year that they have seen with a rear axle break... They have to repaint the whole rear to match because it is silver...very sad here. Be careful DR guys and girls the 1500s have a weak rear...need more junk in the ...a never mind.

That's no fun at allll.. I'd tell everyone the axle snapped simply because of the power she's trying to put to the ground!

I went to the shop today to look at it again...the axel @ the shackle broke, plus the shackle...broke right at that point. The axel is 1.5 in diameter...or so it looked...I told them that I want the part so I will take pictures then and show you guys. Or if by next Friday I feel like I need to visit her in the hospital...I'll snap some then.
