Success-u-joint replacement in place of rag

Thanks to CrowHorse,I dumped my rag joint for a u-joint.It took 20 minutes.I removed the flange from the steering box and cut the other flange off the steering shaft coming from the fire wall.The u-joint CrowHorse sent me had a solid shaft welded to it.Its O.D. fit perfectly into the hollow shaft coming from the fire wall.Bolted up the u-joint and welded the u-joint solid shaft to my hollow shaft,Works great,Thanks CrowHorse.While testing the zook,I did manage to pop both Boggers on the left side going up a slick hill off-chamber about 20%,of course the tires were on the down hill side.Thank God for my front and rear winch and a young friend who just stop bye to see the Zook.He help me carry the Boggers up the never ending hill to the shop to reinflate and carry back to the zook and remount,What fun one can have in his backyard with his shop lights twinking a few hundred feet away.It was a worth while fix,RR

Yeah - CrowHorse, is the rag-joint to u-joint deal something you came up with & are selling?

I will be going to Toy PS this Spring & would like to make this move, too.
