i added the videoJudging by the broken shock seals. I would say you bottomed out pretty hard.
Which means you did land from a certain height. Whether you jumped or not I don't know.
But I do know that there are a lot of opportunities to land pretty hard when you are playing around in the dunes, and these Jeeps are not designed to be jumped like Raptors.
here in so cal we call that dirt. but, that might be spanish for sand, not sure...I added the video
That doesn't look like it was bad enough to cause that amount of damage, but the front wheel was wobbling like crazy right at the end while spinning.i added the video

if that's all you did, that's nuts that happened. seems like the ds snapped for some reason and allowed the axle to move forward which bent the UCAs, while reversing? i dunno. i have a business degree, not engineering. ill shut up now.
The drive shaft was cutted in the revers second after i dont have the full video the people who were there sent it to me...Interesting video.
The video unexpectedly cuts off at 12 second mark, with 4 wheels spinning, so I assumed the front drive shaft was still intact at this point. Curious what happened after.
Perhaps you high-centred on the hill, with a lot of weight on the drive shaft and bouncing around. And when you reversed into it you snapped it off and dragged the front axles to have it curl upwards towards your bumper, bending the upper control arms.The drive shaft was cutted in the revers second after i dont have the full video the people who were there sent it to me...
i know it was cuted on the revers because this point i heard the noise and according to the torque direction.
