Yup! I was trying everything to get back on the road in time. Cost a bit more but Nacho said his will be stronger and built from US parts not Chinese.
I also installed my Rancho rear diff cover cover over the past couple mornings and replaced my stock horn with a replica willy's "beep-beep" horn.

So how's that horn go again?

Mike just sent me a text, he's at the tire store getting bigger tires & wheels for the little Nomad trailer. He's going to try and match the wheels on the Jeep, lol. If he can it will look awesome

A City bus just made a right turn over the top of a new Toyota Camry in front of my office It was sweeping wide to make the right turn and the little lady came up along side of it in the turn lane, either he didn't signal or she didn't notice it.

The bus driver continued turning even after he was over the front of her car! You would think he would stop at that point. He finished the turn and pulled up to his stop up the block. The lady and her little dog got out and seemed okay, just upset. The crunching noise was horrible, not like the good scraping of our skids on the rocks

He probably just thought he was going over the curb. Hard to hear the screams of the passengers when you have your ear buds in.

He is a union driver he doesn't need to care. Tax payers will cover for his incompetence.

And since he can't drive they will make him a supervisor with a nice salary increase and a city car to drive.

Woods driveshafts are made to fit YOUR application, not a generic size.
I call with measurements and two days later I have the shaft.
The best workmanship I've seen on driveshafts, and I've tried the others.
I never have vibration problems.
Their prices are very reasonable.
I don't care who picks up the phone at Woods, you always talk to a positive, knowledgeable person.
If the local guy fits this description, then there's no need to use Tom Woods.

Plenty of driveline shops will make you a shaft specifically for what you need in whatever size you want. A driveline shop will also balance the shaft because its needed.

I'm not saying Woods is the only shaft shop there is, only saying its the only one we use, and the only shaft ill run on my Jeeps. K9HDLR was a little upset over a local shop not having his shaft ready, and I was only giving my suggestion. Remember, I don't deal in one driveshaft a year, I deal in 10-20 a month. I need reliability.

Yup, Nacho Aguilera is awesome. I gave him the measurements and he said he'd have it done by 3 this afternoon. That was at 1100 am. He also took a look at my old Tatton and showed me how some parts were quality, but others were made in China which probably led to my failure. Anyway, he built the shaft for my 64 barracuda several years ago and did great work, not a vibration to be had. The price was fair and nothing wrong with helping out the local businesses and being fixed for Saturdays event!!! :-)
