Yeah $300 was pretty steep, looking online I found a few kits I could have bought to repair it. Might order one and keep it as a spare or sell it and make some cash back. Inland is in Ontario off Gusti near the truck stops off the 10 and Miliken. I would have gotten get a TW but I needed one ASAP.
Definitely repair and keep as a spare IMO. Throw it in the back on trips far away from home so you don't have to use front wheel drive or pay a bunch for another drive shaft.

I think that's going to be a game plan, first I need to break it down and see what really broke.

Forgot to add I am happy to have a welder last guy who changed the tire on my bike must have torqued it to 200 ft lbs because there was no way I could get the dang nut off. Tried PB blaster, heat, Impact and for nothing. Finally bust out the welder and went to town...another $68 buck in parts, just my luck

I will bolt up the new shaft tonight and hopefully get the axle seals replaced as well. I think I'm going to disassemble the driveshaft and see what failed and see what I can do to fix it. Found a kit for $90 so who knows.

So I started the rearend tear down last night. First I installed the new driveshaft which fit like a glove. Next I drained the oil and begun fighting my locker to pull the C clips. It's never fun trying to uninstall a locker but I finally won.

I then popped off the rotors and realized that brake pads were toast after being soaked in oil. Then after pulling the bearings I realize that the AutoZone tech gave me the wrong bearings and seals for axle. So at this point it was 11pm so I cleaned up and headed to the Autozone hub which is open 24 hours. Changed out the wrong parts and picked up the new E brake pads then headed home.

Since it was getting late I decides to start on the new belts. Now my issue, does anyone have an idea of my belts will be ok mounting them like this? I found a few threads which state if the harness bar is used you can moun them as such. As always better o check and be safe rather then sorry!

You have the Rokmen belly up correct?

If you do, how do you like it? Do you have a pic from the side? I'm considering it, but I'm not sure if its flat enough.

I like the Rokmen TT, it's flat enough and was pretty heavy duty. I'll see if I can get some pics!

Thanks. Since it looks like the Savvy armor isn't happening the Rokmen is one on my list.

For the price I like it, savvy is nice but for the price and quality I enjoy it. Still have yet to hit it!
