    Started off with a little vibration, checked driveshaft play, tire psi, lug nuts, shock leaks, everything was fine and the vibrating stopped. Next day im driving and it starts again, im thinking shocks need to be replaced since its almost been 100k miles and im going home so its all good. 3hrs later... BAM!!! Felt like a bomb went under me, instantly lose power and air is draining quick pull off and i see this beauty. Small last driveshaft & one airbag completely blew off the truck, lines torn and another airbag also caught a beating. And im under a load and waiting to get approved for a rental if it even happens. FML lol

    Im guessing yes since the airbag didnt explode and it was ripped off the frame with bolt included

    Repair and or pinch off the lines, cage what needs to be caged, put in your front locker and carry on to a shop, driver! That's pretty crappy but it can always be so, soooo much worse.

    That's gnarly, can you tell where the initial failure point was?

    I had a wrecker drive me back up to the stealership for repairs, and OH MY GOD does that name fit them so well! 6.5k for repairs and only half of that is actual repair and parts, the rest is BS fees!
    Im guessing the failure was the driveshaft u joints that connect to the 2nd(last drive) axle gave out which then made the DS fly off, hit the airbag and ripping hoses
