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?

I've also learned that sometimes... when people don't agree with you .... its best to hold them down and kidney punch them till they agree with you

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