was that too low of a blow? I'm a closet mini truck admirer.
Pretty funny that all of us had the issue at once (mine was repaired last year, but developed a hairline crack barely visible, 1/4" long). It is a known issue, that routinely gets ignored or inadequately addressed in almost every case until it happens.
Crossover steering is the cause. I bet minis aren't the only ones to experience this... just sayin'... we should look at ALL the modified vehicles in the forward corners of the frames for any cracking. I bet anyone with a welder, or Moab Outpost, will be busy this year.
