Two Piece Driveshaft

With a relatively long 119-inch wheelbase, the rear driveshaft is quite long and can dip a bit low under the truck on its way to the rear axle. Aaron had Phoenix Rack & Axle build him a two-piece driveshaft with an intermediate carrier bearing. He fabricated a mount truss and skidplate between the framerails to support and protect the bearing. This gained him significant clearance to help keep the shaft from dragging on boulders.
