These pics are from this weekend, first offroading its seen since the new axles tranny lockers etc. What kills me is my front driveshaft! I had a CV shaft made from Drivetrain Inc here in Tulsa and it looked great, till I started flexin. It popped out when I was headed up this wall <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0"> so I put it in again and it happened again so I removed it, I probably just need a longer slip, its about 6 or 8 in right now. Whats your take???

Yep, your drivshaft is weak sauce! You need at least 10 inches of slip since your shackles will force your pinion downward now. And going up a steep incline with no weight on the front end will only allow the pinion to drop even more. Rotating your pinion up more will also help out your situation.
