    The best part is it didnt cost me any time or money! All I did was put a lift on my truck, and leave the stock front driveshaft in. Then take it muddin a few times and, presto! This thing will angle anyway you need it to. I am thinking of mass producing these things and selling them for a small price of around $500.

    I hope you're kidding right? To say that your cv still worked is misleading. It would still put power to your front end, but depending on your set up smash the cross member, tranny and oil pan. There's no means of alignment, and the shaft would flop around wildy.

    Yes I was kidding. But it really did work, right before I took my truck off the road, I took her for one last mud romp, and put so much pressure on it I actually smoked my clutch. 4-wheel was still working! Just noisy. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    No prob YUNIT, I'm sure my truck can break plenty more stock driveshafts. /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif
