and tore off the exhaust and toppled the carrier bearing over on the driveshalft. It was on dirt too, I shudder to think what rock would have done.
I was making my way up a hill with pits dug into it to stop vehicles from driving through (it's a Class 6 road, legaly I can drive darn near anything through it, it's still a public way, just unmaintained.), and my spotter wasn't really looking at my clearances too well, so as I dropped into one of the pits, I high-centered. I folded the carrier bearing over far enough that it's outer ring was jammed into the bolts that hold the rear driveshaft on. Made interesting noises that I could hear over the brutally loud exhaust. We used a prybar I had to bend the carrier back far enough, and wired the exhaust up out of the way.

So now I think I should tie the carrier bearing blocks in with the auto tranny crossmember to give them some rigidity. Crushing that thing over was way too easy.

Anyone else done this before?

Nope. The only thing I've ever been high centered on is deep snow:rolleyes:
