Thats what Im thinking too. I got about 35 miles on everything and so far so good. Going to take it down a old hunting trail after work to settle everything in. Its just an easy path, Ive seen cars on down it before, but it should help break it all in. Maybe find a rock or something to flex on and see if I get any binding and to see if I have enough slip left

U should have have plenty enough in the slip judging from ur pics. The DS usually compresses upwards more than it droops downward, depending on ur setup but still all should b good. Looks like the guy did a good job shortening it.

So u think if u put a one peice shaft it makes ur gears the weakpoint? The xj/tj shaft is no stronger than ur stock shaft...it's the same thing just one peice, same diameter, same metal. The ujoint is ur weak spot, all the xj shaft garuntees u is that when u put the TC into 4wd, u r for sure locked up front. U dont have that garuntee with the stock 2 piece, u lose vacuum for ne reason n u could end up stuck...I don't see y neone wouldn't want the one piece...but that's just like my opinion man( in my big lebowski voice).

Thanks! Its good to have some reassurance lol

The guy was actually a lot more knowledgeable than I first thought. I started talking to him about drive shafts and his truck...Hes got a 60 something power wagon with a huge cummins on 54" tires that is street legal, we're not quite in the same league

He still says tom woods shafts are junk but explained to me how he builds his heavy duty shafts and compared. He uses a cv section from a F350(I looked it up and think hes referring to the Saginaw cv, which gives alot more room for flex) along with thicker tubes, longer slip section, bigger yokes, etc. but at $450 I think Ill stick with tom woods and the like until Im running some 54s

What have you guys paid for your clutch kits? I found a Luk off parts geek for about 80 bucks, does that seem about right? I'm getting ready for a new clutch and inertia ring install and I want I make sure I order the right part

Coil?? Mine just crapped out recently.
When mine went I cranked it- cranked fine but no start
Checked the fuel rail for pressure and fuel- good
Pulled the wire from distributor to coil and grounded it out- got nothing
Changed coil....$32...cranked right up
Good luck

Have you checked for spark and fuel?

If you can find a mechanic that has the snap on mt 2500 scanner they can test it for you just by plugging into the plug under the hood by the computer
Ask me how I know lol
I would not just start replacing stuff. Stary a thread we can help you. First you need to know what is missing if it os spark that missing the above would be right. If ita fuel that's mossing it would be one of a few other things. Also does your check engine light come on imediatly at key on.

Why is there not a thread that details the basic steps for "Jeep won't Start"? I mean, it's ALWAYS the same: Got Fuel? What Pressure? Spark? Do you hear the fuel pump at turn of key? Any Codes? Here's how to read codes[Link].... etc.. seems like an FAQ ready to be written.. Just sayin'

Xj/TJ shafts use 760x joints which are stronger then YJ joints. Would stock XJ/TJ shafts make your gears the weak point? Probably not but when you start getting into chromo one piece shafts then yeah your gears become the weak point.

I actually like the two piece shafts for me because my jeep is my DD. There are a lot less moving parts with two piece shafts and it does save SOME fuel mileage. My vacuum system went out on my jeep so for now I just locked my shift fork over and am driving with my front axle connected but I plan to get a good Posi lok kit so I can have a reliable axle disconnect.

My yj came stock with 760x, I still swapped to one peice from a tj. I wouldn't waste ur time with the posilock altho they arent bad by me means. Every one I no tho that has had one has ripped it out because it didn't work worth a dang. Having ur fork locked over is the same as having a one peice shaft...I just don't see the point not to, I prefer to have the seal in at the differential and way less extra parts that aren't needed on my axle. Shafts r 25 bucs to replace and very easy to find.mines held up fine to 36s n constant abuse so I have pretty good faith in the little Dana 30 is all I'm sayin haha I well set up vacuum system works just fine, just not my style.

That the cheapest price I could find when I replaced my clutch last year.

All I'm saying is for a jeep that sees more street time like mine does is that it is nice to be able to disconnect the front axle. Ideally I would like to have hubs but they are stupid expensive for a YJ d30 and not worth the money. The Posi lok kits aren't junk and work just fine if they are adjusted correctly.
