    **I think** the 80* part is an agricultural piece that is not "sealed" like the regular CV on our trucks. I don't think it's rated for continuous use.

    And The 80 Degree C/V here you could mount your t-case on the hood and still hook it up- remember this its not for speeds above 30 mph on a constant run- and its the size of a 1 gallon paint can -7" diameter (it hits hits most automatic trans pans -)

    i could not find if it was sealed or not. do you really need 80 degrees though?

    Yeah, I checked Driveline Solutions site and it has some info. It says 30 m.p.h. max. My truck is going to be off road only, but I don't want to have to worry about driveshaft speed. Is the limit supposed to be because of heat buildup? /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    ask me about this company...I will attest to the poor craftsmanship and shoddy customer service every time. They are also called Arizona Driveshafts. DO yourself a favor and buy a www.highangledrivelines.com you'll get a guarantee and you won't have a big POS that breaks other components.
