Re: Aluminum Driveshaft failures?

That's the problem with mods. You think you're invincible now and can give that line a try you were like "NO WAY on 35's" before. Only thing is you were right. Still not happening. :lol:

Re: Aluminum Driveshaft failures?

All of this said, some guys here have mentioned preemptively getting a driveshaft done, and I just wouldn’t do that. It isn’t an upgrade item except by necessity in my opinion. I’ve had the truck buried to the frame in a silt bed with the stock shaft leaving a nice deep impression in the ground and...

Re: Aluminum Driveshaft failures?

they’re not the fragile little butterflies you’re making them out to be either. They are. :poke: There was no spinning tires involved. I was just on it. And backing off didn't help. It let go. We've seen this multiple times now. If the drive shaft is on a rock and it spins, it will cut it open in a...

Re: Aluminum Driveshaft failures?

The thing about the rocks is that it's literally an aluminum can. It doesn't take much. If you contact a rock and it spins, it slices open. https://scontent.fboi1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/61256484_867934070265685_1488691245965377536_o.jpg?_nc_cat=109&_nc_ht=scontent.fboi1-1.fna&oh=c0daf2320da06af866...

Re: EMF steering linkage?

Well..........I ordered the DOR steering linkage. The 1013-STANDARD DOR Heavy Duty Steering Kit, Bolt-In, Standard Kit with stabilizer clamp and heim seals. Both tie-rod ends on the drag link are bad on my PW. I could hear/feel a slight knock at slow speeds. Took a while to find it. And my new smar...

Re: Aluminum Driveshaft failures?

I noticed how large the stock driveshaft is on my 18. Has anyone destroyed one in the rocks yet? I haven't seen anything on here about replacing it, but it looks vulnerable. A good friend told me it should be the first thing to go, but he plays in the rocks for a living. There are other things I wo...

Those are loads of fun and just as capable as a PW in mid-size trim I feel minus a few features. But still pretty capable compared to a Yota or Ranger.

Re: Grill/Bumper Cosmetic

Mike (?) where did you source the mustache grill and what was the cost? I recently investigated the cost of rapping my '16 grill and chrome bumper, but at $500 I figured that would be money better saved for a new 3rd party bumper. Just ebay; which is mostly dealers selling them. Everyone said they ...
