Anyone ever done this?

Jeepman14wheel:
Wheeling out at devils Canyon in CA and the rear yoke decided to have an issue. Basically the rear shaft was hard on a rock breaking the little tab that holds the u-joint in place. This allowed the u-joint to slip out sideway and almost destroy the shaft. I am lucky someone say this right before I was going to throttle down! The U-straps actually stripped the threads making it fun to get off the trail...

Luckily I had a spare 1350 yoke at home to replace it with better u-straps this time.
