Looks like you could use a new windshield! Keep us posted on the driveshafts, I've got to figure something out for mine, soon. I think I'm going to try to run CVs on both front and rear to help reduce the angle, or make the angle better, I should say.

the broken windshield resulted from my friend squatting down on to it when we pulled my motor back in september

You can get a custom drive shaft at this shop on 41. Ive got the card in my truck ill get that for you later. And Kyle and Travis are running square driveshafts. They are 100 bucks from a buddy of ours in cummings. You drop it off and pick it up. Let me know if you need either numbers.

It is called American Driveline or something like that. It is across the street from the big RV place between Barett Pky and 75 on 41. They are real nice people to deal with.

heres an update guys...

waiting on thirds (friend is setting them up) then get a rear driveshaft made..freakin taking forever

motor is all back together now, tried to start it friday (but did not succeed in starting) then i figure out i have a blown head gasket as oil was leaking from around the head at the timing cover i guess it happened from the last wheelin trip somehow i hit a rock and broke the water pump belt and didnt realize it until i was almost home 2 miles later but this week i am pulling the head, cleaning all that shit up in there after i already replaced the manifold gasket, so i guess i'll have a spare one...

it will get resurfaced/milled whatever this weekend, and get a new starter this weekend aswell to hopefully start it then...

tried to clearance my IFS cv tonight to make a square shaft, but the ujoint caps wouldnt budge at all so i plan to get another yoke and flange to go on the tcase end and run the ifs yoke on the diff. end

damn, all this crap adds up REALLY fast and i have about $300 left from my insurance check to do a head job, resurface head ($30 since i know a guy ) get a driveshaft made and get a yoke/ flange and more oil/filter now, and no telling what else

With a single tcase even a clearanced IFS CV will bind, at least mine does. I'm goinf to regualar UJoints at both ends.
