Upon recent inspection-

My rear driveshaft is still two pieces with a carrier bearing right before transfer case. Welll not sure what’s going here or why it did it but it used to go

Flat from transfer case to carrier bearing
Angle down on the long shaft to the axle
THATS HOW ITS SUPPOSED TO BE

Mine now sits angled all the way from the transfer to the axle. Carrier bearing is like half in half out on the bushing. Sweeeeeet. Looks like I’ll go 1 piece shaft now.

So you think this is a problem?

I’ll keep running it 😂 until I can get the guys to build me a new driveshaft.

idk if this has to do with the added torque the tacobox produces or what. The carrier bushing was not completly straight before, but better than this. I noticed now it’s all angled and the short shaft is following the line of the long shaft.

Wow nice upgrades, awesome build thread you got some good history here. Idk what to say but it’s not from start to finish, it’s a endless build page!

Thanks! I’ll eventually be done with it, when it leaves my house lol. It doesn’t get driven much so I enjoy building it, when I have time. I have a vision for it and once I hit that I’ll be good!

I guess I could throw these photos in here since I never did. There’s a whole thread on the Offroad bed too. From start to almost finish. YouTube video as well.

Here’s some pics of the bed. Still more to do.
