    Looks killer dude:waytogo: Have you thought about putting the slip down at the axle? (more clearance).

    lol i had a mental debate on that. clearance didn't come to mind...i was thinkin i was keepin the slip out of more water and grit.

    at this point im just hoping the truck moves under its own power when i get the clutch linkage hooked up, but maybe ill flip it now. hmmm

    I have been running the same shaft with the slip at the axle for a couple years with no problems at all.
