Driveshaft replacement

I just dropped the rear driveshaft in my 110. Wondering if now is a good time to upgrade. Anyone have any suggested vendors, mfgrs they'd like to recommend?

Thanks,

Doug

(Ahh -- it was a 12 inch rockwall in the middle of a sandy 40 degree twisting hillclimb in TruckHaven. Rear tire stopped cold and the driveshaft yoke gave way.)

You broke a Salisbury rear shaft
Those things are pretty indestructable,
You must have been really motoring
What size tyres do you run?

The axle is Salisbury, not the prop shaft I believe.

255/85/16s.

I ordered the Tom Wood. Was less expensive than the stock replacement. Randy, they owe you one!!

It's a language thing!
You call 'em drive shafts, in GB we call 'em half shafts.
We both call prop shafts - prop shafts, that is as long as they run between the differential and transfer box.
Breaking a Salisbury axle (any bit) is still pretty impressive.

Mike,

What are you talking about?? The axle shaft in a Salisbury is the same junk as a regular axle. The R+P is beefy and the axle can be upgraded but the drive shaft and axle shaft are no different at all.

A fellow D90 owner from NJ told me once that Tom Woods DS ships with a Tom Woods decal that reads... "My Shaft Is A Woody!"

We should do that again soon!

Is This another language problem
The shafts running from the diff to the wheel are a good bit thicker on my 110 with a Salisbury axle than they are on my 90 which has a standard Rover axle.
The prop shaft from the transfer box to the axle is the same thickness whatever the axle.
Maybe we need so,e sort of universal parts translator

Nope no language barrier. The axle shafts in your Salisbury are the same diameter and spline count as the regular rover junk. 1.23 in 24 spline to be specific. They are VERY easy to break, actually, I just broke one typing this. They do not neck down but other than that, all the same. I don't know what you are looking at that is smaller, you sure your not comparing it to a RAV4? Sorry, I had to. Nice big and strong R+P though, just surrounded by junk.

I'm looking at a big pile of 10 spline shafts. I collect them cos there so easy to break Although running nearly bald 7.50 x16 mud tyres in the mud usually stops 'em breaking

Oh, you are looking at stuff we don't have here in the US. Yeah, that stuff is even smaller!!! I had that on my old 1990 Defender too, kind of.

Thank goodness that's sorted I was going to pull out shafts from the 110 incase they'd shrunk since the last time I looked at them. We regard the Salisbury axle as a top 'indestructable' swap for 90's over here in the U.K.

Without the bomb proof Rover Trax 35 spline upgrade, how is that indestructable at all?? What size tires are you guys running?

I run 'small' tyres and get a lot of stick for it. But my big pile of spare shafts stays big and my bin of broken shafts stays empty. Just watch I'll bust one on the next outing.
I run 7.50x16 Firestone Super All Tractions (S.A.T.s)
My mates run anything from this up to 36" Super Swampers, and 35" Simex Extreems, they bust half shafts, diffs, CV joints etc. etc. and/or pay big bucks for toughened beefed up gear.
They also do this to nearly new Land Rovers
