Hopefully this and some lock tight on my transfer case skid bolts will equal a solid machine. What would theoretically be the weak point now? Driveshaft u-joint? 231?

231 aluminum case is my guess

So far from my experience the 1310 drivelines will break before the t-case. That doesn't mean the case can't or won't be a weak point as well. I would carry spare driveshafts if possible though.

It's probably best that you stay with 1310's......great angular capability and they may act as a fuse for your 231. Although I wouldn't be overly concerned with either one.

Just got off the phone with ECGS and the 35 spline 4340 custom shafts are being cut down right now. Looking like I'll make the 7 hour round trip on Monday for pick.... then drop off on the way home to get the brackets and tabs welded up.

ARB and 4.88's going in:

I've heard of some big-a** tires and axles being run with 1310's...

Just read this entire build and i must say its an amazing build. I do wish that the pictures were still there though, but I suppose thats the costs of technology.

I broke the ears off my 1310 driveshaft, didn't even break the u-joint cross. I did that with a 4 cyl and 5.38 gearing and I mention the gearing because the higher numerically gearing is easier on the driveline parts. May have just been a fluke but I was beating on it about as hard as we would in race conditions trying to make it through trails in JV.

I know Blaine likes to stay with 1310 stuff but if you look at the majority of Ultra4 racers they are running at least 1350 series parts and some 1410 now and driveshafts still fail often. It's good to have spares whatever you run.

Dude... I need to go back and do that at some point. I wonder how far I strayed from different directions and mindsets with this rig.

I have not yet. I'm curious as well but I need to finish up some tube work and a few other things before its close to race weight.

To me the fuse theory is flawed use parts that most likely will not break, much better prerogative. My Put put beater so far has only bend a thickwall driveshaft still drove and wheeled with it for a year and one 9/16" control arm bolt sheared. 1350 U joints for the win in my book.
No sense in trying to race in 2 wheel drive after you explode a yoke.
Mikey blew one, my bud Fred exploded a 1310 CV shaft in Moab also bumping a ledge. He went 1350 since and no more problem, you can get plenty travel out of those shafts without binding with 14" coilovers so that is not the issue. I don't even use a cv shaft in the front
