Waggy CV front driveshaft for CJ-7 rear driveshaft
Does anyone have any thoughts on cutting down a Waggy CV front driveshaft to use in the rear of a CJ-7?
I'm going SOA with Waggy D44's and I figure I will probably need a CV in the rear. The Waggy front driveshaft (from a QT) is skinny compared to the rear, but the slip joint size looks about the same as the rear (maybe a tad smaller). What is the torsional weak point in the driveshaft: Ujoints, tube, or slip joint? Would it bend easier than the larger tube shafts?
Will it be strong enough for 304/TH400/QT/4.56 D44's and 35" tires? Will the auto and full time case be more forgiving on the rear shaft?
I'd rather not mess with it if it won't last, but I have one and would use it if it will work.
