Well I'm glad you guys are ok and the truck if ok. Geeeze! I'm scared of that happening to me.

Well if you didn't have work done then probably your c clips broke or the center pin came out somehow. Looks like you will be replacing the axle shafts too. It could have been a lot worse dude.

The glory of running large tires on a c-clipped axle. C-clip eliminators are going in my 8.8 before it goes into the BII.
