Default Snapped 4wd U-Joint.....

Was out wheelin last weekend and snapped my 4wd U-Joint on the front passenger side. I'll snap pics later but it clunks horrible when I hit any bumps. Goin to fix it tomorrow and hopefully all will be better. I just replaced my transfer case 2 days ago out at my shop. Truck has 147,000 miles. Anyone else broke theres while out wheelin?

Well I had it fixed and the new one snapped.. Looks like I'll have to get a new axle shaft as well because it slid out and is hitting... The pathetic thing was that I was not off roading when this new one broke... I regret swapping to this Dana 44 up front.. My rear Dana 60 has held up excellent though.

My axle u joint went bad on the passenger side, but I replaced it before I did any offroading, or it failed.

Sucks to hear. Maybe the axle shaft was messed up on it already and that's why you're having u joint issues?

What do you mean you swapped to a Dana 44? The stock front axle is already a Dana 44 for a 98 1500. At least that is what it says your truck is in your profile.

Sounds like the new one was not installed right.....
