    I need advise

    11/03/18 I was driving down the highway going 65-70 MPH and I start hearing this rattle so I pull over check to see if any heat shied is coming off or anything noticeable and I find nothing so I pull back onto the highway and get up to 65-70 and the front driveshaft snaps randomly I had northridge 4x4 here in Denver install my Evo long arm kit and they didn’t tighten my drive shaft bolts all the way so they came loose and caused a lot of damage should I have them fix everything that broke or how else would you guys go about this?IMG_1380.jpgIMG_1382.jpgIMG_1383.jpgIMG_1384.jpgIMG_1385.jpg

    If they fucked it up, they should fix it.

    Damn, well I’d certainly be taking it back to them. I had a similar go around (not as bad) with a shop in AZ: had my gears installed, went back for my break in fluid change and axle seal leak (for warranty) and my gears seized down the street from their shop when I left. Ended up making them rebuild my front driveshaft, replace from u-joints, and install a new OEM locker. I would think that Northridge would do the same for you

    Fuck that shit. I wouldn’t have them touch my rig after that. They suck. I would make them pay for that shit especially the tub.

    How long ago did they do it? I would also have someone check out the rest of their work.

    Offroad Evolution installed my kit and my front driveshaft flange bolts came loose so do they suck also? Luckily for me it happened at slow speed off road. I'm guessing they properly installed the bolts and they worked themselves loose. I started checking mine regularly. A good way to check the driveshaft is to crawl under and push up on it.

    No driveshaft bolts don’t just work themselves loose if they are installed properly with locktite.

    The long arms were installed 9/28 and they claim everything was perfect and I’ll be good to go for a long time so obviously when you hear something like that you think you’re good to go but finally It decided to snap yesterday and the tub is what really pisses me off lucky it didn’t crack the transfer case but it did snap the transfer case shift cable so they’re going to be replacing a lot of shit and fixing everything when I get to talk to them tomorrow definitely not happy and I know they don’t have the greatest rep on here and I won’t be returning to them after this is resolved

    I would have the transfer case pressure tested to be sure the case isn’t cracked anywhere. Doesn’t take much to crack those housings.

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.
