Default I am the owner of the worlds only FWD Ranger

Earlier today my truck was driving kinda weird and shaking real bad at higher speeds. I was going to check it, but one thing led to another and i didn't check her out like I should have. LATER,
I'm comming home from my girlfriends house and all of a sudden i hear this grinding noise so i pull over in the nearest parking lot and then a bang followed by a louder grinding noise. Next thing I know I'm pushing the gas to get it into a spot and the truck isn't moving. I really thought that the Tranny had quit on me that how scary the sound was to me. I limp it to a spot and get out of the truck to find this:


I got the shaft out, locked the hubs and put her in 4X4 and drove home real slow like. Just figured id share my friday night with you all,

Nice.
I actually shapped my driveshaft back in April with only 22,xxxKM on new truck. Had to drive 80K in FWD.

thank god for 4x4!

a buddie of mine lost the u-joints on the rear driveshaft of his old F350 while driving on the NJ parkway, about 4+ hours from home, and had to drive home in front wheel drive mode.

I guess the extra money you spent on gas for the 4x4 was redeemed right then.

I was unaware that these driveshafts took so much of a beating. Everyone at the junkyard was fucked up in some way. >.<

Had to order the part from RockAuto. Should be here in a few days.

4x4 FTW!

Glad you were able to get it home without having to pay an outrageous tow bill.

AAA free tows anyway. I just hate admitting defeat to this truck. And getting towed from the big ass Dodge Cummings Turbo diesel they have in this area is not something I enjoy.
