When you are posting your reply, you'll see a red square button that says "Tube" just above the text box. If you select it, you will get the YOUTUBE tags added to your reply. Put the ID of your video between the tags and it will show up like Treeroot's embedded videos above.

Like this (misspelled on purpose).

[YOUTUB]video_id[/YOUTUB]

where video_id is the value youtube assigns to the video, like Pb-K2tXWK4w

Wow! I wish I would have kept going! Seriously bummed out. I could have fixed the 40 on the road if I had met up with you guys and someone had a phillips screwdriver.

Ya...it did! I didn't lift until it came down. Guess i had plenty of traction... Haven't had a chance to really crawl under it and look. Hopefully it was just the shock wave but it broke all three u joints in the front shaft. I suspect the axle came back and jammed the shaft together.

Looks like fun. Nice video. You had guts hitting the famous drift that hard. You certainly succeeded in getting through it the first time.

I can't believe you have mini truck parts on a big 80 like that.

All 80's have 8" turbo mini truck front diffs cut in reverse rotation with mini truck front driveshafts.

So if you had a stout manly front drive shaft, would it have blown up the diff or the transfer case instead? Seems easier to fix this way.

So you're saying you want to upgrade to a 100 series?

I'll buy that hunk-o-junk busted up 80 off your hands

LOL. Pretty sure he won't be blowing up the diff he replaces the mini truck diff with.

On second thought, its Kevin. Nevermind, he will.

I've been waiting for this day for a long time. Lets see some LS power backed by an atlas and some 9" stuff. Or put it on 4dees and run 60's.

I love seeing other people spend money
