Time for a front page update? What is the storage box you had mocked up for behind the seats and did it make it into the final truck? Do you have anymore information on it? Thanks.

Oh yeah, it's one of my favorite mods. It's on the first page somewhere. I bed lined it to blend in with the cab.

So I have a tiny issue. I installed the front DS tonight. It's about 2" to short, meaning I don't feel safe with only 2" of engagement in the splines. Anyone know how long of front shaft I can safely run. I need a 44" front shaft.

Thanks I will hang up and listen now.

You should have more spline engagement than that. Didn't you just have that shaft made? Or is that the one setup for the Flop?

With all the work you did extending a driveshaft 2" should be cake, cut right next to the yoke weld add 2" of tube tack, check to see if it's true, then weld in 4 spots 180 degrees across. Shouldn't take you very long. Laying it in some angle iron while tacking help keep the tubes lined up.
If you get the thing retubed have them use 0.120" wall tubing

It's a custom front shaft with 2" 120 wall I had it built for flop and as I was building thought I had measured correctly for it to fit. 450.00 for this and now i need to lengthen. I was mainly asking if its safe to go out to 44" ?

Sure I Have a pretty long driveshaft in the front, actually helps driveline angles and yoke clearance. With a long enough shaft you could possibly loose the cv joint to boot

Me to, I am going to ease it out with the front shaft as it sits. Then turn it around and take the shaft down to Dave's d shaft to get him to retube it. My rear yoke will be here Thursday. Then I can take the Jeep for a spin.

One or two more days and a few bucks doesn't make much difference anymore. So ya have the shaft retubed, fix anything else thagtg needs fixing and enjoy the heck out of your Jeep, it's truly one of a kind

My front drive shaft is 43.5" at ride height after the aw4 swap I had to have it re-tubes.

The lack of a front drive shaft won't keep you off the road.
