I wonder if we could get a deal on 3? Lol

My only problem is that mine is the shortest version 92 and older. If I re-gear I will have to spend again. I am going to look for a strap type in the PnP and modify for u-bolts. If I can't find one then I will buy from there.

BTW, that is what they are doing to these, they did not start life as a U-bolt.
They don't seem to make a 92 u-bolt aftermarket either. :cry:

I had to go to strap, Spicer doesn't make u bolt anymore. People were over tightening them. Our local shop Extreme Off Road has a rock buggy with straps, he says they do fine. It's 460, 60 front, 70 rear, 47" tires. I've been on Dusy with him a couple times, it does great. He's in our club too.

why not machine a cap to take the place of the straps? this would give much better support to the u joint and likely stronger too.

I like the idea behind the stronger u bolt style but id also rather break straps as opposed to a drive shaft or u joint. I dont know maybe the yoke could break but i carry extra straps... :shrug:

bonanza today at pnp. short 1350 yokes were everywhere. picked up two so I have a spare but now have to see about converting them to u-bolt or find a better strap. I'm going to ask Steve at SB drive line and see what he says.

Also picked up a spare flange to play with, a couple short filler necks from a dump truck, and a spare clutch slave and hydrolic line

forgot to say that I had a conversation with Steve at SB driveline about the strap u-joint. It turns out that the problem with the u-joint popping through he straps is primarily a Chevy thing. He recommended I change out the for torx type screws for an aftermarket hex head or even better drill them through completely and use a grade 8 allen bolt with a nut. The common failure for a ford strap u-joint is when the driveshaft angle gets tight enough to contact the strap bolt head and breaks it off. That said I have spare yoke as well.
