    long story short...
    had Arizona Drivelines build a longspline rockcrawler set of driveshafts. Drilled and tapped np208 tailshaft and used a bolt to eliminate slip yoke. Drove to Moab for Easter Jeep safari. Broke bolt on yoke. took it back and managed to get it repaired for free and get a spare yoke for free. Out last weekend and the C.V. H-yoke shatters. Took it back and they say it probably bottomed out. I am running revolvers and a shackle flip, stockoverloads flipped too. what is happening?

    god i spent around 650 bucks for the driveshaft. While lubing the cv i dropped it and damaged the ball in the c.v. That cost me 150 to fix... If they dont fix it for free i'll make something out of it and go back to Dicks Drivelines or Driveline Service of Phoenix... I want someone to build something that lasts. I have minimal axle wrap and a low horsepower 350. This sucks. I cant see spending 1000 on a freaking driveshaft that continues to have quality issues.

    I can vouch for Jesse's work at high-angle-driveline and it is top notch. He was very patient talking to me on the phone too to make sure I got exactly what I needed for my application.
