Ovaled axle yokes...

Blew up a u-joint in a FW dana 44 on wed. night. Going wheeling for the weekend tomorrow.

warn shaft. short side inner, slightly egged out 1 hole.

what are our options??
scrap it and gimp the weekend on a stock shaft?
weld the cap on and call it good? (any special treatment needed to weld on the 4340??
put it in as is and pray.

anyone had any luck getting warn to warrenty them?

this sucks

just curious...what size tires, what u-joints are you running?

From what I've "read"...no first hand experience, Warn won't warranty due to u-joint failure.

If that's the case, I'd weld it up, and take the stocker along as a spare. If you feel like it, pre-heating would be about the only pre-caution I would take, not too much, just a few hundred degrees, def. not red hot or anything. Then allow it to air cool slowly.
