Wondering if anyone here (4WD WK) has driven there Jeep without the front driveshaft? reason i ask is because i am trying to locate a problem and want to remove the shaft for a few days and drive it around town.
No smart @ss comments please! i am annoyed by this issue as it is.
Not sure on the problem, i have replaced my entire front end minus the axle and still have terrible steering, i hear a very bad and scary clunk which i can't seem to find anywhere, not sure i can blame my lift then again i might have to tear down my front end again and hope i find the cause of my steering.
My new rack and pinion shows no leaks at all which i still feel that it might be my problem.
I am just so feed up with this POS and really considering making my Jeep rear wheel drive at all cost.
mine was making that same damb scary clunking noise, lol it only gets worsei just snapped off and my front drive shaft began to glow red and about seared threw my break or gas lines that run under the driverside. 05 limited 5.7 let me know if its possible to drive it without the thing on. now i cant get the damb thing to engage any gear or even turn over? it seems the damb things get a scratch and the whole system shuts down? ha imagine if we got a everytime we got scrapes we blacked out...there goes boxing i'm about done with jeep

Took the front drive shaft off the 06 Commander today. The vehicle backed of the ramps once the front drive shaft was removed. Typically, I would have had the other tires chalked but the trans should have kept the vehicle on the ramps with the rear drive shaft in place. Anyone have an idea why the vehicle would be able to move?
