Default Waiting on my 3rd front driveline...

So, back in November, my front drive line decided to break at the T-Case u-joint.

National back order, my luck.

End of February, got a new one! YAY!

Fast forward to yesterday, 400 miles later and the 2nd time it touched the dirt since the new one was in, and, yup. Broken again. Stuck again. Good thing we bring friends.

The truck has the 4" Mopar lift, installed by the dealer before I bought the truck.

Has anyone heard of front drive line issues? This is getting absurd, they're on national back order AGAIN!

Its a 2010 with 47K on it.

Drive lines don't break just cause. Especially 2 premature failures. Look for bad angles, hyper extended shafts, etc.. Associated with the lift IMO

The only thing i can see that would cause accelerated wear is the higher than stock angle, but for the life of me I cant find ANYTHING that would cause two failures back to back.

It's the lift for sure. Anything past 2 inches and you are really messing with angles. Stuff wears so much faster. Should a driveline break in 400 miles? No. But a 4inch lift can't be helping whatever manufacturing issue there is.

I wonder how many other people are having this issue, too.

I can't find a way to decrease the angle. My only option is a HAD.
