I discovered that I did not walk away from Cliffhanger unscathed. My rear drive shaft is a little worse for the wear after an encounter with an unhappy ledge. In fact it wobbles about an INCH. :eek: so out of round I nearly cried...

BUT! Burt has a wonderful Warranty Parts bin that happened to have a Tundra two piece drive shaft and a 4runner drive shaft. What do you get when you cross the rear section of a Tundra drive shaft and a 4runner slip yoke? A freakin beafy mini truck shaft! All for the wonderful price of doesn't-touch-my-wallet!

Hooray! Not to brag or anything...

Justin,
I know it messes with the "don't touch my wallet" school of thought but having your driveshafts retubed with .095 or .120 wall tube will eleviate your worries! For example my rear shaft also took a major hit and got swirlies from some huge optional ledges on Clifhanger early in the week. It is .120 wall and is still true except for needing a new "Krylon rebuild." So yes it's true my repair will cost more than yours but $5 for a rattle can of satin black is still pretty cheap!

Yes, but that good old warranty bin will still be there after every trail run. And with the fancy double cardin on every single one of 'em...I'm happy.:D

P.S.- I see the Rice Crispies is official now!!! lol

As long as it's 2WD you will be less likely to go Snap-Krackle-Pop!

You need to have David Bosley (Tramontana) make you up some little Snap, Krackle and Pop elves on magnetic backing like my Red Chilis... 'Twould be classic!
