I know! I will always question our decision to turn north early
. After 3 mechanics did work on the U-joint and said all was OK and 3 times the U-joint went bad we felt we had maybe a bent shaft or coupler or worse. I think in the end all we had was maybe the wrong U-joint and/or clamp. The Jeep is still running good today with no more U-joint problems.
We decided to make up for the early Mexico exit by doing a 2 year trip through Central America and maybe even South America. We are taking off June 07’. Yes, I guess that works!
