    Hey Eddie, you're a douche bag and everyone knows it!

    I've been running the teraflex repezza joint for a while now with no issues due to the original getting torn. No specialty tools were needed when I replaced mine. It does come with a tool for the new Ball head hex bolts but I don't consider that a specialty tool as I already have a set of these.

    If you can't get a new driveshaft then buy the teraflex repezza joint. You won't regret it and watch the video they have for the install on YouTube and follow those and you'll be fine.

    Also the teraflex allows more driveline angle than the stock but be careful as now the weakest link will be the front driveshaft hitting the exhaust at full drop which will then cause the middle boot to tear. But I have the exhaust extenders so I don't have to worry about this.

    How much lift are you running? If you're at 3" or higher it's going to tear again it's only a matter of time. Less lift and you'll probably be ok

    LOL!! I realize this might be hard for you to understand being that Teraflex did such a great job on selling you their product but more driveline angle IS what causes the CV boot to fail prematurely. I'll bet they've also got you sold on one of their HD Dana 30's.

    maybe worthit until you can afford those new shafts which you definitely will have to do as Eddie wrote.
    Only worth it if he "needs" to go off roading. I find it hard to imagine that he couldn't get a free front shaft from a member here - at least, everyone I knew used to give them away.

    And I too realize this might be hard for you to understand but WOW, you come off as a total jerk. If you're the owner of this forum then you are the most unprofessional person that should consider being more polite to new forum members. Especially ones who just joined but have had nothing but Jeeps over the last 30 years and perhaps a bigger knowledge and how-to base than you seem to think.

    Teraflex didn't "sell" me anything, I actually did my homework. I have not had any issues rock climbing with the teraflex repezza joint in Texas nor Colorado with a 3.5" metalcloak lift. When my stock front driveshaft and Dana 44 completely fails I'll replace it with my Dana 60 I have sitting in my garage. Until then we will just have to agree to disagree.

    You sure do think highly about yourself don't you?

    Despite what you may think excessive driveline angles on a cv joint will cause it to fail. Maybe now but eventually.

    And hear I thought you were man enough to not get butthurt over a whole lot of nothing - guess I was wrong.

    If you're the owner of this forum then you are the most unprofessional person that should consider being professional.
    Ummm, yeah, welcome to my home on the internet. Don't like the way I choose to run my forum, don't have to be here.

    Teraflex didn't "sell" me anything.
    If you say so. You sure had me fooled.

    I did my homework unlike spouting my mouth off like you.
    Clearly, we all have our own idea of what "homework" is. Of course, I'm just a guy with a website and have no idea what I'm talking about.

    Do you need a "safe place" to go and cry because he wasn't polite to you? Go grow a pair

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
