What's the story behind that? I have to admit, it is impressive though.

Twisted splines on a D60 front. Shattered a Warn hub on a D60. Broken output on a 241 t case. Shattered a 241 t case. Ripped a steering ram off the front axle. Rear driveshaft. Cut tires. 10 bolt front hub bearings. Wasted a K5 frame. Every body panel dented. Bent tie rod. Ok, I think I'll stop there and leave the 5 days in the hospital out...

ive never really had anything that horrible. broke my np203 transfercase my very first time offroading, broke one front axle shaft, and besides other small stuff and body damage not to much. recently i had my front axle break the bolt that holds the pin in the carrier and the pin slid out and started banging the pinion gear, then the np208 blew up on the way back to the parking lot

laid my first engine to rest, but that's because I'm dumb, not the lack of strength in a dana 60...
