Well.. after a year of patience and lots of new junk... including 1 ton drivetrain and extended wheeelbase.... She's back on the road!!! :thumb:

Decided to test it on the forlift and glad I did.... front brakelines are still a bit too short... not a problem... and I couldnt flex it all the way due to the rear quarters not being cut out for the flares yet... 4.5" extended wheelbase.... I am predicting another 6-12" of flex after the mods are done ....her ya go

yep!! Right joint

I have taken the specs and measured everything with a caliper to .001... my yoke is worn... about 1/8" slop total.... less than 1/16" each side if I center the joint....

Runs smooth as silk if I'm light on the skinny pedal..... as soon as I mash it..the joint centrifically slides to one side causing a NASTY vibe....

by the way... I didn't post about my new custom CV I got from AZ Drivelines....

PAUL... did you get yours yet.. or still waiting....


Here is a comparison of the OEM shaft and the new 3.5" shaft... :thumb:
