DJ, if you do go ahead and get the TM driveshaft... let me know how it goes, cuz I'm no driveshaft expert, and since I'll be having our local 4x4 Shop here install my lift, they might as well put on the new driveshaft while they have my car (plus I dont want any problems). If it will fix the problem I can work another 3 months and make $700 for the damn thing... as long as it isnt a POS...

Just keep us/me informed!

Good Luck
---Nate

Drive shaft

I to have had that prob, my lasted about 1.3 years and I was driving about 70 one day with my 1 year old and wife and my front tire locked up for anout 70 feet. sent me side ways and it had blown out my CV joint. I went back to the shop and had them make a shaft like the TM shaft. I paid 375 at proven force with the credit from my first shaft. Djohnson they will credit you if it is around one year.

Or I would go to the shop that did 2001ExpSport's or just buy Superlifts for 350.00

I was wondering right now I have a 97 exp and christmas is coming up. But soon I plan to get a 98-00 exp 5.0. I was curious about the stuff that will still fit on the newer one ( 3' body lift, shackles, add-a leafs, torsion bars and stuff like that) if anyone could answer this It would greatly help
thanks, hutch

Do you have a scanner you could use to send those instructions to me by e-mail? If so, my e-mail is [email protected]. If you can do it let me know! Thanks!
