Hmm, time for something stronger... musta been all that whopping 22RE torque.. twisted, bent, AND split at the clearanced point.







That mud pit also took out all the front wheel bearings & races :( At least the kingpin bearings were still ok.

Aren't driveshafts supposed to be Round? I broke a front in the mud last weekend also. ;(
Square is the new round.. Havn't you heard ?? Also a square d shaft is a lot cheaper than having tom woods build ya one :thumb:

Yeah, 0.25" wall. It nevre broke, but was thumping/bound pretty bad.

I use the square up front for the amount of slip. I need about 8-9" of travel in the front shaft with the long springs and rear mounted shackles (I easily max 13" shocks up front).

I'll probably build one with 0.25" wall DOM round and a 12" SY. Or move to 2.5" / 2" tube (that one was only 2" / 1.5" tube).

I also have a squire driveshaft up front. Never thought you could twist it like that. Going to have to try that when i get the 350 up and going.:tonka:

Did yours click and clunk or was it a tight fit in eash other?
A little bit of clunking in 2wd, 4wd it was pretty quiet.

You should learn how to your shit in the garage like me, and it wouldn't break
