    At both universal joints on each end of the half shafts. Clean off. U joints snapped in half too.

    How?? Mudding on July 4th!!! It was a hill... a big hill... with a lot of water and mud at the base. Mud all over the place.

    But I made it up this supposed tough hill, after I made it through the water, where I'm sure I busted the half shafts. Thus, I made it up in 2 wheel drive what many there couldn't make in 4.

    Messed up the ball joints on one end, seals... But I'm soo proud. Pics of the after math to soon follow.

    Freakin' half shafts are pricey though. :? Yeah I know, I'm already looking for a 44.

    Not in my area. Unfortunately. Already looked.

    I just now regained online access to find some online.

    Usually the joint goes first and then takes the shaft with it. If you didn't have shafts that would hold a 297x joint, now would be a good time to find a set. 1995-newer had them factory.

    I snapped the driver's side today, tore the ears off the outer. Had my 260x spares in there luckily, so I'll get my 297x originals back in there with new ujoints.

    You crazy guys. Can you use a joint like CTMs on a stock 95 D30?
    These voices in my head are giving me a headache....
