Re: Borgerson vs. FlamingRiver
Almost every part on my Jeep was scrounged from a junkyard or built by me, so I know how that goes. What the Borgeson shaft does that the stock one does not do is appear beefy...holding them side by side the Borgeson one is much stronger, it is thicker, heavier, and the u-joints use bearings, rather than a tin cap that the joint pivots on. My stock one was shot, I replaced it out of necessity. When I was doing my engine swap I bumpedit and noticed a lot of slop in the factory one, which necessitated replacement. Unlike street rodders, I didn't replace it for looks, in fact i didn't even paint it when I put it in, so it'll become rusty some day soon. Point in fact it is way stronger than the factory one, and should thus last longer, especially running oversize tires and lockers.
