Chevy put one of these in just about everything that ever moved. I like to stick them under jeeps.

Agreed. Drop alloy's, detroit, and an Ox in there and you are set :)
Alloys and ARBs sounds better. :D

Although, the stock shafts in the rear are more than is needed for 40s. They will stay stock. The front neck down shafts are getting replaced.

Nice theory.
I'm kinda stuck. I have to have some of the upgrade parts to work with others. I watched a buddy destroy his knuckles and really messed up the front end. It completely wrecked his weekend.

I'd rather everything work and not break. I don't get to go wheelin as much as I'd like so I don't want down time when it happens. :D

When I replied to you I thought you were distorted.... bastage.

Copy.

I think we all want stuff to not break. Especially when the breakage causes downstream (or upstream) damage. I tend to leave a weak point alone that doesn't cause that and allows for a fairly easy trail repair if needed.

I drive distorted's jeep on this forum. I'm like that. And I am a bastage. References available upon request.
