Aluminum housing ? Otherwise you would think something else has to give first.
Make sure you know how to fall properly when you fall and as to not hurt anyone around you.
Also remember, it's not the fall what hurts, its the sudden stop. !!

Maybe I don't break as much stuff as I thought after seeing that. The last drive line  problem was in a 30,ooo lb. Rockwell rear. It broke 1 axle shaft in 2 places.it had a Detroit locker in it. The locker didn't always unlock turning coroners.  I replaced it with the new improved Eaton no spin

Outch, I can just imagine of the force going around a corner loaded with a locked diff. Probably made some noise too. ;D

I guess the guy that lived at that intersection watched for about 15 minutes & heard it go. Pretty loud he said.

Im pretty surprised that locked full screws could even turn at that load.  Id expect the fronts to push or the air ride trail arms to tear out of their cast aluminum hangers.

I don't think he did make the turn. But sounds like he tried for awhile. The same driver got stuck on are landing. He got out to look. But forgot to take it out of gear. We went to give a pull & he's out of the truck with it still spinning. First time he pulled one of are chip vans he almost rolled it with a load. I was surprised he told us about it. Had his cruise set at 55 going around a corner that's 45.
