What did I do?

I can't figure out how I did this to the front axle. If you can't tell from the pic there is a dent in the casing. I have a skid plate under the axle and can't think of the last time that I was stopped by a Rock or something else in front of me. I pulled the fill plug and very shiny gear oil pored out with what looks like graphite in it. I don't get any odd noises or vibrations but I think the carrier shaved down the inside of the casing. Weird.

I can't tell much from the picture.

Have you had it worked on since you last looked at it?

You didn't hit anything and drag it, did you?

Maybe a moose in Maine....

It's hard to tell but it is now dented in, instead of bowing out like normal.

No thats what I find to be odd. I thought I would at least hear grinding. I don't want to pull it apart as it works fine.

From the look of the picture that is not nearly deep enough to make internal contact with the housing. You are fine. Those pumpkin skins are extremly thin. You could easily dent it and never even notice.

Stupid question Mike...but is your track bar really close to your diff...I'm asking because I've seen a LR that once had the front radius arms so loose at the frame that the front end flew forward and contacted the trackbar under heavy breaking. I really doubt that this is your problem because you would definatly know it, but you might want to check and make sure everything is tight just to make sure.

But it was probably a moose:

It is about an inch away, and the arms look ok, at least when it was in for inspection last month they said it all looked good up front. I just can't see how or when I hit only the axle.

moose I'll get them, just you watch.

You probably hit a rock in one your mud hole crossing. Three things I would avoid. mud, deep water, and deep snow, as you have no clue what's under there.
However, if I were you I would run this.

Thats 1/2 of all the trails around here! I think I need one continuous plate of steal covering everything front to back. Should also help out my COG.

There is a guy here in CO that has all kind of custom plates under his D90, and it looks like a tank

That's funny. Mike does the opposite.
