    I totally agree with this. It is pretty easy to rebuild the shaft with new u-joints and the double cardin. Not super expensive either.

    How so? If you play at all off-road having your shafts rebuilt or at the very least inspected should be done yearly.

    A good plastic surgeon and labiaplasty are in order.

    Yeah I'm fortunate enough to have a local shop who can do this. Last time it cost parts plus 20 or 25 for labor. With all the right tools I'm sure it takes him less than an hour. It was around 100 for the front. The rear grenaded so it need an H-block as well and new center ball. It was about 75 more. All said for both I think it was $285 when finished.

    My rear developed a vibration so I took it in this morning. Itís no longer straight after taking some hits. Also the portion of the flange that secures the u joint is beat up and ground down from rock contact. $460 to rebuild, pick up Wednesday. Oh well. After a couple of trips to Moab, Rubicon, many local trips to Big Bear, Calico, Cougar Buttes, etc., I guess itís the price to play.

    And incidentally these were Adams shafts but as I mentioned above, this was a result of them being neglected and NOT them being any particular brand.

    What a way to get reminded to grease up your shaft, and all the other parts that need lube.

    I would hate to see what the bill is going to be for that one.

    I inspect both DSs multiple times per season for play in the joints or trail damage and grease them when I do. You think itís worth pulling them and having the guy who built them for me, inspect them every year?

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
