Admittedly, Jeep off roading is not really driveshaft friendly, thus the reason why we need a drive shaft strong enough to bear the extra stress without overweighting our Jeep. Our driveshaft is the carrier of our torque, which makes them center stage for abuse and subject to torsion and shear stress.
Ground clearance and/or high pinion differentials are the only real options for protecting driveshaft’s. Keeping them out of harms way whenever possible is the safest bet. When you think of your Jeep’s driveshaft, what is the first thing that comes to mind?
