well I finally have the time for a proper post on my newest carnage. Seems as though I have now blown the rear shaft in my truck. The front shaft from Jess didn't work it was too big even after re working my exhaust twice so I sent it back with the thought of purchasing a smaller double cv from somewhere else of course it was never done so I ran on rearwheel drive for about 5-6 months I was towing my trailer from DC to Norfolk not 5 miles from DC I lost all power thought it was the tranny at first (which would have really sucked) but just turned out to be the rear drive shaft, but since I was moving I had all my tools with me and a spare front driveshaft (stock) that I just slapped on. Put it in drive damn still not going anywhere. Oh yeah I never replace the front axle and cv. So pulled the truck into a parking lot and since I also had the spare axle I bought in the trailer pulled that out got to work and 4 hrs later was on the road in the snow with only front wheel drive towing a 4000lb trailer needless to say dumb all day long but the Navy dictates that sometimes to have to be places at certain times. I took some pics which I'll attach when I get home. You won't believe what an opened up rover will do to a stock driveshaft (I twisted the end off) Just thought I'd make someone laugh at my misfortune ...again.

that's not even funny if you knew the story behind my old pickup trucks. In Dallas I had a beater (84 chevy pos) that I ended up dontating to a tow yard because while I was arguing with my apt who was responsible for the cost it got so high it cost more to get it out of hock than I paid for it. Then I got another truck a tow rig and the starter went out on it when I was moving down to Norfolk. So currently I own a 84 chevy dually that also doesn't run. So yes I have and I have acted upon just needed to use the d-90 at that point in time because I had to be in Norfolk and had to get the trailer down here with all my stuff. Oh yeah here are some of the pics seems as though I left most of the carnage on the side of the raod because I can't find the other flange that was twisted off but here's the part I still have. I think I'm going to make a collage of broekn rover parts.
