    I got my first taste of rock climbing and it was great! Wow! I know those rocks are nothing like what a lot of you guys go on, but I had to start somewhere. We are mostly just trails around here so these are about the best rocks in the area. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif Unfortunately, soon after that in attempting to pull out a severely stuck Bronco, we broke our trucks beyond driveability. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
    I even got my CK5 hat full of mud, removing what was left of my rear driveshaft /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif. It was fun, but I will not be so eager to pull anyone out again. This will cost us big time!

    That did not happen on the rocks. That happened because of mud. The mudhole looked very innocent. The guy has 35" BFG A/T's and a Ford 400 engine. He got almost through and there she sat. All that trying to pull him out (2 broken straps, 3 broken trucks). He had to go back today to try to get it out. No way we could; it wouldn't budge even with 2 trucks pulling at the same time. His bumper is off, his hitch is off, my husband's front axle shafts are both broken and so his his transmission. My truck, well, you saw it. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif Whew. I guess hub is going to get his truck tonight. It will be good to get it home, but it's sitting til we can afford a TH400 and a Dana 60! I love mud, sometimes . Not right now. I still have to spend a few hours cleaning it up, too! The rocks were an adrenaline rush, for sure.

    You may want to price out a Slip yoke eliminator for your t-case. May end up being cheaper than replacing the tailshaft for the slip yoke. I know Jess at High Angle Driveline sells the kits, couldn't find a price on the site though. Just a thought.

    Come to think of it, probably not. A driveshaft w/ slip built in isn't gonna be cheap. Sorry, just thinking out loud /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
