My uncle bought a 2001 Ford Superduty last spring (Dark Blue, V10, ordered all the bells and whistles) and it had a serious calamity last week. My dad told me yesterday THE DRIVE SHAFT FELL OFF as my uncle was driving down the highway. He said he was driving and he felt some vibrating and suddenly it got so bad he had to pull over. My uncle told him that it was hanging there by one bolt. Is there some sort of recall on this? I know my uncle hasn't abused the truck. My 77' Chevy probably sees more abuse in one week than most trucks ever do and it still has all the original drivetrain and transmission, nothings ever been replaced on it and my mechanic said everything looks good underneath the last time I had it in. My OTHER uncle has an 89' Chevy 3/4 ton that he uses for soil testing and he's had nothing but problems with the drivetrain and he's replaced the front end on it twice because the 4X4 keeps breaking. A friend of mine has a 76 Phord and that thing is great off roading, although it doesn't have any power (2 barrel carb w/360 V8) I've come to the conclusion that all newer trucks are pieces of [censored] when it comes to off-roading. Or maybe just pieces of [censored] period.
