Yeah... so never do this in a Jeep...

I was chillin outside Wawa tonight with my friends, and when I went to leave I revved it up a bit. When I did this, all my friends flipped me off (the signal to do a burnout lol) So naturally I threw it in 1st revved it up and popped the clutch. Rear end started hopping up and down real bad, next thing you know... BOOM!

charnage, nice!! if you are ever on the trail going up something and start bouncing like that again, that is a good sign you will break stuff, driveshafts, U-joints.

Middle finger= burnout?? I'm out of touch....

Yep driveshafts break. I've got one that looks just like that. Stock jeep ones are the thickest I've seen for stock ones too at .095" wall. No local driveshaft place would do over that thickness either. Mine is now .180" wall.

Because of the short wheel base, Jeeps have to darn much traction to be doing burnouts with. You could be overstressing other components with out knowing it. Then one day when you pull out from a stoplight, it fails and you wonder why it happened.

I did that once too, got a heavier tube on the shaft on the next one and have had no trouble since. Nice carnage!

what do you plan on doing bout the shaft, have it retubed or just buy a used replacement one? if you get a replacement and have no need for the spun shaft i will take it offa your hands. i am looking to make a custom shaft but dont want to cut up one of my good spares to practice on.
