Lab Lover Thank you. My son was 6 when Amanda was born too. He didn't really care that she was around until she was old enough to crawl and get into his GIJoes, lol. He to!d me, "Mom, she has to go. She gets into everything and she just needs to leave". Of course he repeated those thoughts many times throughout the years

Everyone is doing great, Caleb has been enjoying staying at our house, he's not sure about that baby though. He met her at the hospital and said we should all just leave, haha.
Our son was six years old when our daughter was born. We had a family room during delivery. He took one look, said "Okay" and went back to watching the Laker game. Congratulations again.

The result is a heck of a lot more ground clearance under the axle and a couple more inches of axle droop due to the shocks being raised. It's the difference of getting hung up on a rock or not; with 33s, my LCA mounts has better clearance than 37s with the stock mounts.

Kenny made these ones for me, but there are a few similar things floating around on the market. I know that EVO and Metalcloak have versions that are relatively inexpensive. They are all bolt on, so the only real work is cutting the mounts. You can do it in your garage with a cut wheel, although getting the shock and link tabs off was a little time consuming. LCAs stay in stock location, so the geometry doesn't change either.

You can see where the rocks slid right under there, I would have gotten hung up on whatever rock did this with the stock mounts.

Yeah Joe you went everywhere.

Gunner I believe I have heard rumors of an RCV Driveshaft for JKU's No U-Joints. No Vibration.

By the way you can jack up the jeep and set up some sort of blocks to hold a Pencil near the driveshaft. rotate the shaft slowly moving the pencil towards the shaft. When it just touches then you can see if it touches all the way around. If not then the shaft is bent. That can be fixed with a torch and a wet towel to shrink one side. Kinda back yard but it works.

Sorry bud. This is all old news to me. As far as if there are bigger cv joints I would say yes even ten feet tall. Most of this stuff thought in any applied physics course. I'm not sure if it's still available at most high schools. Then again I was home schooled for the most part.

I've got a JK rubicon and it's got a u-joint at the axle end and the fancy joint at the transfercase.

Yeah I'm at ft Irwin that's 38 miles north of Barstow, and honestly I'm way too busy to take a day trying this and that and everything in between. The Army doesn't believe on working on your own jeep. Have you tried the 2 hose clamp tricks? Or maybe a undercover fab low profile transmission mount to even lessen the angle more? Or called Tom Woods and talked to him to see if he can give you some incite?

Don't hold my spelling against me but think its called a reizzo joint or some variance of it. it's what you see in fwd cars it will have a odd number of connections that is used to make a predictable motion.
