Overall: exceptionally happy with them! They look super heavy duty and great price. Look forward to testing them out in Austin in 2 weeks.

Junky temp shackles

New vs old thickness

^ thanks, I appreciate it.

@ springs,I'm hoping the same works for myself. Just need the extra money now for it.

I was talking to a TJ owner the other day who had the 2". He said the guys charged him $400 for the kit and installation... I was thinking to myself. Damn, I'm in the wrong business.. Lol

Finally got to really get the jeep out and test it's abilities. Really happy with the weekend but it ended short with a broken driveshaft. Had to limp 230 miles back home in front wheel drive. Super sketchy as it pulled hard left and right with acceleration and deceleration.

Anyone know if I can just get that bottom half of the shaft replaced or do I have to replace the whole thing?

You can seperate the shaft at the splines and replace it with a portion of a stock CV shaft.

Northern Drivetrain.

HIGHLY recommend them for parts. They got mine shipped to me next day when I paid ups ground

GREAT company and prices. Give them a call after you place your order and they will hook you up with the fastest shipping available.

Thanks man, i appreciate it. Ive been doing the same.
For the shackles i went to lowes and found some metal pipe then cut it with a pipe cutter. Pretty sure it was 3" pieces. Then just put that in the middle and used grade 8 bolts for the top and bottom and 5 in the center. I think they were 5" bolts and I ended up trimming them up a bit.

I am having the WORST time ever trying to separate this slip yoke from the shaft. It's about halfway out and just seazed in there. I broke my rubber mallet and have torched and pb blasted the hell out of it but it's coming out millimeters at a time extremely slowly. Anyone have any tips. I'm all blistered up from a "simple" project. Lol

Got everything back together and greased up finally. Used the hammer method to get the u joints done and lubed it all up good and put it back together. Just test drove it and I'm happy to have rear wheel drive again. Front wheel only sucks.
Probably going to get a spare slip yoke and u joints for in the future. Once again, highly recommend using the drivetrain shop link posted above for any drivetrain parts.
