One other issue we had to deal with as a result of the rear axle stretch was our existing rear driveshaft from Tom Wood’s Custom Drive Shafts was now too short, so we called Tom back up for a little longer replacement. As for retirement for the old shaft, it won’t come soon. It seems to have just enough slip-spline to work in a pinch, so we’ll carry it as a trail spare. Can you tell which one is the new one? Here’s a hint: It’s a little longer. Oh, and the old one is slightly beat up.
