2012 Silverado 1500, it’s a Canadian Pacific rail service truck and when they drive through the yards they drive over the rails without slowing down at all, my guess is that the rear end caught air and they stayed on the throttle and when it hit the ground again the stress cracked the differential cage.

Ford Smax 2010 1.8 TDCI ZETEC engine. Fuel pump to crankshaft belt teeth sheered off causing the engine to go out of time (2 belts on this engine) what’s unusual is that its done the pistons and valves rather than the camshafts/cam holders & valves
