    Finally got to wheel my truck this weekend after waiting for my new High Angle Driveline 42 degree c/v front shaft. What a work of art:bow:. Now for my problems. When a did a night run at one of our local wheeling parks, within 10 mins of wheeling I had all ready pulled the new front shaft apart.:mad: I guess running the 52's springs and the sm465/np205 combo is going to cause this. I think I will just have to run a limiting strap on the passenger side. That happened 3 more times before heading home. Right before I was going to leave I some how got talked to go through the log crawl/pit, I almost made it all the way through, but the last 20 foot got stuck bigger that sh!t. After winchfest 2007 ended, I was out. Ended up bending my M.O.O. Anti wrap bar. and bent my frame where the tcase crossmember mounts too.:doah:

    Now my truck gets to be parked until I can afford to fix this sh!t.:(

    Ouch Chris, sorry to hear about that. So can Jesse at HAD make your shaft with more slip? I know my front 42 degree shaft doesn't have much slip.

    Nope, He said that is one of the down falls of the 42 degree shaft, you lose some of the slip shaft. A limiting strap should help me out here. As for the other stuff back to some more beefing up.
