    Tools, not the ones downtown though ;)

    As CV boots are too...

    What!! It is just a propeller shaft. Get a take off one for cheap and let's wheel this weekend. Someone has got to have one from an upgrade ;)
    Traction, articulation, and gearing make a good off-road rig. Just a big lift, wide mud tires, and a winch simply do not.

    Jeep is back in my driveway. Sound fixed. The front driveshaft CV at the transfer case end was toast. Boot torn and ball bearings a rattling. He scoped the transfer case and it's in good condition. A few other items for the list I need to take care of - control arm bushings and drag link ball joints with excessive play - ordered a new drag link kit and will work on the bushings when I get a chance.

    I would not have thought a prop shaft would make noise only while turning.
    At least the diff is healthy! That would have been pricey. But good reason to add a front locker...

    Somebody pointed out to me - when turning the front wheels travel a slightly different distance from the back wheels - this is why with a locked center (which the t-case effectively is), you only want to be in 4wd in situations where at least one of the axles has poor traction, so the different loading on the axles can come out by way of the wheels - if on pavement, they will chirp when turning. When the CV joint is shot, instead of smoothly passing the torque on to the axle, it's the point were the load in the drive train gets suddenly released.

    I see the logic of the sentiment that double cardan (sp?) joint is better for this than a CV.
