When you push up on the slip yoke, is there more than 1/2" deflection/free play?

My stock shaft wore out here and also, when the PO did the lift, he did not re-do the shaft and it was "slipped out" more than stock. I put on a tattons shaft that was mucho bigger and thicker for fairly cheap ($150)

That looks pretty stout compared to stock.

Any clearance issues with the larger diameter shaft? Did you go with a long travel slip joint or standard?

If the shaft is bent as a result of this, consider yourself lucky, it could have been much worse.

Ya guys, definitely stronger, it gives a sense of peace for sure, I went with the long slip, it was what was offered, 7" I believe.

No clearance issues that I have noticed yet, I gave her a work put this weekend!LOL

I agree w/lucdog. You got off cheap. Could you imagine if that sucker let loose while pulling? I'm shuddering just thinking about 1/2 the shaft going through the oil pan, a chunk going into the fan...or some such catastrophe. Ya may wanna pull the front diff cover and do a little inspection. You were gonna service it w/new fluid anyway, right?

Using your winch as anchor point for pulling is also a bad thing, its hard on the brake of winch.
