Random Cool Idea.
Alright, Maybe im just stupid and need to go to sleep before i think up something more crazy, but...
How badass would it be if someone fabricated new U/LCAs to work with HMMWV (humvee) differential/CVs/BJs, and put that thing in the front end? Re-gear the Diff of course... That thing would NEVER break.
Again, just a stupid idea (or maybe a great one.)
