    I do have some concerns with it I talked to Jess at high angle driveline I think he said that the angle has a lot to do with the vibrations he like to see less then 10* or 15* and he said that I should get it balanced but he wouldn't touch it due to its home built. He also told me in the nicest way I think he could that my set up isn't ideal with the space I have. I really should get a atlas as it would help by moving the out put over by 1" that would reduce my driveline angle

    shouldn't one end of the diveshaft be turned 90 degrees to be in phase correctly?

    Hey that's better than my wife just smashing into the rocks with the axle and not giving a shit about it. Good for Molly, I'm glad she jumped in the driver seat. Next up, Carnage?

    Is the new cell working out for you?
    I used to have problems with mine building pressure like you mentioned, turns out I had it vented incorrectly.

    Billavista has pretty good tech on how to vent it properly, hard to tell from the photos but not sure if yours is done like this or not?

    Venting is near the bottom of the page

    haven't had any issues with this cell I was having issues on the last tank when the pump was in the tank... I'm sure it was all due to venting/ lack of venting...

    I do have this one vent where it goes around the cell and has a loop in it and then down below the cell

    That was my point... the welder was asleep at the wheel, resulting in a poorly executed weld. Hopefully they'll make it right!

    After that failure how'd you get off the trail?
    If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have none at all.

    I had a spare drive shaft back at the truck so I was able to keep wheeling.

    I feel that rebuilding/lengthening my rear driveshaft is needed..... You think they'll go for that in the deal? Remember that time I came over to your house, drank your beer, and watched you guys work on your rig? I think you owe me... Just sayin'....
