Don't be afraid! It's only metal. Shortening, lengthening, and re-tubing your own drive shaft is not very hard, but you won't be able to balance the shaft at home. The methods shown in this article are geared towards trail Jeeps that rarely see pavement and to trail repairs on any vehicle.
Project SkyMiles "Phase II"
Project SkyMiles "Phase II" is a combination of upgrades designed to strengthen the Cherokee XJ, make it more versatile, and position the Jeep for future upgrades. The main pillars of Phase II are the addition of a Klune-V 4:1 planetary underdrive and the switch to a Dana 44 rear axle. The upgrade was far from a simple two-step upgrade, however.
The YJ YJ Transformation
Is it possible to build a YJ with a spring over suspension, 35x12.5 Swamper SSRs, Dana 44 axles, a Detroit Locker in the rear, an ARB in the front, a ladder bar, high steering, an Atlas tranfer case and more, in a month, on a tight budget, in an average garage? Yes!
Moab Rim South Bay Driveline Extreme Slip Drive Shafts
Extreme articulation demands extreme drive shafts, an Extreme Slip Driveline from South Bay Driveline to be exact. Project Money Pit gets some Revolver Shackles and the long spline drive shaft it needs for the big tire droop.
Drive Shaft Basics
There are many subtle things about a drive shaft and the conditions it operates in that will greatly effect how well the drive shaft performs. These subtle variables may have a profound impact upon the life of the drive shaft components, the amount of vibration the driveshaft produces, and whether or not the drive shaft is even capable of meeting your vehicles specific requirements.
