Yes, I use one. Ran it for a long time without then decided to use it. I doubt it matters much but it does provide a perfectly square, solid connection to the skid. Combine that with the stiffer motor mounts and the drivetrain doesn't budge when the gas is goosed.

Zero work on the Jeep this weekend. Saw Sevendust Friday night up in Fort Wayne and FINALLY got to see Slipknot last night. Corey Taylor is a damn genius.

Tub panels and Savvy tub rails arrived, still waiting on that damn drive shaft. Gonna call today, if it's not been shipped then I'm cancelling the order. I was told it would be to me by the 6th and that's well past due.....seriously? It's a ******* drive shaft. Not complex or difficult in any way.

I would have had their phones ringing off the hook on the 7th then. You gave them 9 more days than I would have..... and still no.... That sucks.

That's the one thing I liked about TW; my order shipped the same day I ordered it.

I called on the 9th and was told it was being shipped on the 10th. Still no shaft, time for a second call today.

His shipping is fast as hell but I wanted Spicer parts.

I almost built my own shaft but was just unsure I could get the yokes perfectly centered on the tube. Maybe I should've gone for it.

I sent my TW shaft to them to be lengthened and they received it in the morning, called me to verify the length, rebuilt it, and shipped it back all in the same day. Now that's service

Nah the big smile will come, when you crawl that ledge like it's a speed bump.
By the way to do it right, you have to crawl your local lawn first.

Sooooo....did that drive shaft ever show up yesterday? If not, I'd be talking to them about a partial refund.
