Actually it was a rather calm and quiet "*****." My friends that were with me can attest to that.

I usually prefer the f-bomb or some derivative thereof.

Reminds me of that time I lost control of a go kart, and drove through the brush into a creek. Just a calm, quiet and slightly constipated sounding, Crap.... The go kart had no brakes and the chain popped off going down a hill GOOD TIMES .

My cousin (the one that was there last weekend) drove my go-kart into our pond. As if it didn't already run bad enough...

To be fair, I have driven it straight into a big stump at high speed once. Took 2 trucks and tow straps on either end of it to pull the front end semi-straight again.

Lol, how did he manage that? I went into the drink because of a failure, did he lose control? My friends cousin flipped their 4wheeler over backwards lol realatives.

He tried to drive up the steep hill next to the pond with the shoddy engine, which of course cut out, and the brakes aren't strong enough to hold it on a hill. He never thought of turning the wheel. Just rolled straigh back into the water. I've had some relatives roll/crash our atvs, but I'm sure mine outnumber all of them combined.

Gah, this driveshaft deal is really getting to me. I know when I get some adj lowers I can get the pinion set better, but I think any downtravel at all is going to cause it to bind again. What I'd love to do is push the rear axle back some, but that means building new arms, stretching and 4-linking the rear, ditching the tank and possibly converting to a fuel cell, and probably buying a whole nother shaft. It would be so counter productive, after spending all this time setting up the bracket kit, and installing brand freakin new control arms and shaft. I'm also concerned that adj lowers won't be able to shorten enough to get the pinion in the right place, thanks to my immensely steep angle.

This must be the most expensive hobby in history, next to those who get off swimming in pools full of Benjamins.

A center limit strap would solve your problem. It will still let the axle flex but keep the diff from dropping and maxing out the CV. It's a cheap fix too.

My TJ had the same problem yours has, had I kept it at stock wheelbase I would've done the limit strap.

I thought about that, and I meant to bring some ratchet straps last weekend for that very reason, so if it started binding, I could tear one apart and jury rig a strap. I'll probably go that route for now. I figure I'll probably start on my solution in 2 years, once the front is in and 3 linked and both axles geared.

I can't believe you got out with no damage, if it were me the windshield and top would have been trashed for sure.
