    Here's the first few proto-types - there's 1410- 1480-1550- what do you think? Jess

    I think I will run 1480 on my truck- maybe get a few pic's of it rubbing on a rock to show why we like flanges- Jess

    I saw your post on pirate about these too but am kinda confused. In some of the pirate pics the yoke and flange look like one piece. In this pic the yoke appears to be cast and the flange machined so they look like two seperate pieces. Am I just not looking at it right or am I missing something else?

    The flange is machined billet material I believe. Atleast it looks like it in person. The yokes are cast and bolt to the flange. Kinda like Toyota stuff.:wink1:

    It is a billit- and the driveline flange bolts to the pinion flange with either 4 bolts or 8- here's another view- Jess

    I like flanges for cool factor but can someone tell me the functional advantage over a yoke with ubolts? I think it is the fully encapsulated (if that is the proper term) Ujoint caps there fore better load distribution and less likely to spit a cap. It also looks like it would keep the joint off of things as the flange would hit it first.

    How much angle can a 1410 operate at? Is it comparable to a 1350 CV?

    I think it would be sweet to have a shaft with 1410 flanges on both ends:D .

    My interest is peeked. I was just talking about changing my 14 to a 1410 yesterday. Like a couple of others though, what really are the advantages of a flange over a yoke?

    1410 is marginaly stronger then 1350, but it is capable of more of an angle

    1410 is not the interest point it is the flange for the 14FF pinion that has everyones interest peeked:D . That and it comes in 1410, 1480, and 1550:eek1:
