Who do you work for?

The proving ground. Said shop is not affiliated.

EDIT: I'm going to ask his permission before posting details (location, name, etc). I'm just respectful like that.

Yeah definitely wait till you're done with the suspension and then get with me. We will get you set up with an appointment when you need it. He does most shafts after hours during the week or fri-sun during the day. Do you know where Foothills Transmission is behind the OK Market off 32nd?

I'm not sure what the old name of it was Bill, but it is right there by Brown Bag Burger. It's just past 6E if you're heading into town from the Foothills (on the right). I'm pretty sure it's right across from Rocking K RV park and next to Yuma Mesa RV park.

Are you busy today? I will give you a call this afternoon any maybe swing by your house.

Talked to my boss, he said he could hook you up with a strong shaft and high angle if you need it. Did you get the lift kit on your Jeep?

Well how does it ride/wheel since you put the stretch on Bill? Did you get a non-CV driveshaft?
