We fixed a lot of stuff.
Not for me really (Eddie McGuyver kicks butt), once I got the clanging up front I pretty much backed away.

No pic's, we had a lot of speculation, all incorrect on my part.
Pulled the front shaft this morning. There's a slug inside the front driveshaft on the transfer case side, there to keep grease and water out of the tube above the upper shaft splines.
It's punched back into the tube and rattling around when the shaft is engaged, the long spline shaft punched it into the tube when I came down someplace.
Didn't bottom out, no damage to the shaft or tcase, they'll retube the shaft (remove the slug) in the morning and are going to machine the inner double carden for more angle.
Not sure how that works other than cutting away from behind the 2 balls, but I held them face to face in front of me and it looks good.

That's good that it was not a more critical part.

I bent up my rear driveshaft pretty good, will need to fix or replace before the next run. Also need to work on the transmission to transfercase adapter that keeps getting loose.

i only broke that shock mount on the jeep. need to decide on a permanent fix for my fuel problem. and my t-case adapter is already loose again. now as far as the trailers go i trashed the front axle on mine completely and the one i borrowed was returned yesterday with a new spring shackle:o
