sorry so big
Yeah that picture is massive. But I sure haven't seen that before. So if you know why it happened why don't you share? looks like you going to have to weld a thicker plate in there so that doesn't happen again, at least that is what I would do.

He was showing me what I'm missing with my spacer lift vs. his LT suspension. So he jumped the truck, came down pretty hard and something went snap...

looks like the alignment cam was loose and it sucked it out, i woudlent be supprised if you loosen it back up readjust adn teh metal is still there just bent over, i know alot of people tack the cams in place to prevent this from happeneing...

Hows your front center Xmember look? Im guessing the top should have some cracks in it by now.

That could have really sucked some serious stuff right there man. that's pretty cool that someone found that one before it became a major issue like draging the corner of the truck as you go down the road or soemthig like that.
