Finally drove it up to highway speed with the new driveshaft. Smooth as glass! I'm happy with the Tatton's. Still got a bit of wobble though, I need to sell my 33's and 35's and get a new set of MTRs or something...

Yeah like Shaef said mine are 5x4.5 and yours are 5x5.5. What is the backspace on your wheels?

I was thinking about making the same swap on mine but powder coating them gunmetal. Just can't justify spending so much more per tire

Apparently I didn't get the seal seated well enough when I put in the solid shaft. I have a bit of a leak. Good news is I didn't break anything in Moab. Beat on it pretty good it just squeaks like hell now.
