Driveline Issue Resolved - Thanks BP Drivetrain

I had a bad vibration/binding in my driveline. I knew I needed a QT chain so for a few months I blamed it on that, while driving it very little. After chain replacement it actually got worse! I still suspected the QT because when on jackstands I could reproduce the racket and see the QT case vibrating. But I also realized the vibration can travel from the source.

I decided to check the rest of the driveline before opening up the QT again, moving forward and backward from the QT. Based on recommendations here I sent the front driveshaft to BP in Utah even though it seemed fine. Well - it wasn't. But it took a pro to diagnose and repair. Money well spent and reasonable considering the parts+labor. Got a rebuilt double-cardan, new beefier and lengthened slip joint, new front joint, and balanced.

Problem solved.

Pahrump! Grew up in the LA area and went through the Owens Valley many times, on the way to Sierra/Tahoe destinations. Pahrump! Seen it on the map many times, and was delighted with the name when I was a kid. What's it like? Been to Shoshone and DVJ but never Pahrump.

Oootah is nice too.

Dry and dusty at times....Actually we get the dust that whips up from Owens Valley and Death Valley here at times... The Owens Valley flats/former swamp is actually one of the worst environmental disasters in the U. S. after the area dried up/drained out in the 60's
..Not quite as hot here as Vegas due to less traffic and pavement. I'm in kind of a good situation as I am the only driveline shop here and there are lots of hot rodders, 4X guys and gals, tow rigs...It has worked out pretty well...
Gonna retire for good in about a year. May winter here but not summers. Kind of a dirty town though.

FWIW though,,,lots of trails for wheeling, more springs, mines, etc to explore than I would have thought. No fish though,,,ugh.

Hey Bud, you should start a running driveshaft thread in the build section. Every time you put your hands on a FSJ driveshaft, post a pic of it, say what you are doing and what it is going in. That would be super cool!!!
