I don' t think your busted u-joint warrants a breakdown roster of every single part on your rig :rolleyes:. Oh, I see the problem, you put the CTM's in your driveshaft instead of the axle shafts. Sounds like you have a ton of money tied up in your rig and absolutely no experience. Bottom line, wrong forum :mad3:.

its the joint on the drivers side front axle. that connects the the hub/shft to the axle.
Thanks on the kind words.
I work 70-80 hrs a week and off only sundays. i don't have time to work on mine all the time so the lack of experence is there.

Bacon, and lots of it. Bacon helps me change my u-joints.


Oh yeah what the hell do white faced gauges have to do with a wheeler's specs? This also sounds like it's never going to see the dirt. Just a feeling I have. :flipoff2:

Tool.

Do you just buy them built and drive, or have you put the actual wrenchtime in? IMO your first post looks like you copied someone's cardomain page.

i posted it here hoping for some info. But i found it on another forum.
Yes i can change a u joint. but i needed to know if i had to pull the warn hub off to get to the axle and joint. Yes i buy built rigs. Don't hate because i can.:flipoff2: This is a great way to show new members the way you treat people. One person gave me some sort of help.

Perhaps you missed this:

Jeep - Hardcore tech (40 Viewing)
Hardcore Jeep tech here. Newbies beware!

or perhaps this by Steve N:

What's "hardcore"?

Things like fabbing 4 link suspensions, Jeepish buggy's, Big tires, big axles, fabbing trans adapters, fabbing hardcore parts. a common theme is fabbing.

What is non hardcore?

Lift kits, typical springovers, bolt ons, drivability, identification, and countless other things.

that is all.

Uh I can afford to pay someone to build my shit too guy. I'm sure plenty of guys here can afford to pay for all kinds of services - but don't. Changing a u-joint is something most people can do on the trail with a highlift handle, screw driver, pliers and a trailer hitch - yet you can't manage it.

In case you haven't noticed, the PBB treats people who post stupid questions like stupid people.

Welcome to Pirate4x4, now go home :flipoff2:
