My transplant was a success

As some of you know I tanked my t-case, i basically ripped the front output shaft out.. So i traded my ballistic fab high steer arm for the t-case.

It was off a 91 explorer, i took the front output shaft out of the case and put the one from the ranger in.

I also figured out what happened, the front driveshaft has enough travel for my axle at full droop, but its past the point where it'll turn.. so I need some limiting straps or something until i can get another driveshaft made..

Why dont you just limit your extreme flexing instead of paying for straps

You're basically saying don't wheel your wheeler.

Limiting straps are not that expensive compared to the cost of repairing a recurring problem, which will happen if you don't do something about it.

Looks like you did a number to the old one, Matt, but glad to see you did something about it.

I may just do that, we're supposed to go wheelin again on March 16th and i REALLY dont wanna sit out.. sooo chain or cable it is

it went right in, the old one came out the back rather than the front, but it all lined up. I was cool with leaving the explorer yoke on there and getting a new shaft made from an explorer one i could get for $20..

but this way works and I can wheel this shaft some more
