How Do You Store Your Shafts?

Nevermind the porno subject line. Just curious how everyone stores their extra shafts/CVs on their rigs. I'm not interested in the bungee cord solutions as I want something more secure. I was thinking some 4" PVC pipe with screw cap ends. Thoughts?

Not my gay Jeep below - FYI

I'd use some "quick fists" and mount them in two possible locations. On a 110, I'd put them under the 60/40 seat. Or, mount them on the wheel well side of the tub. By the floor, not behind the seats.

The pvc idea looks okay, but they would rattle inside while driving and that would drive me bat shit crazy.

Don't apologize for the Jeep pic.... I mean, you're born gay right?, it's not a decision.

Actually, I never thought of mounting them under the rear seats - lots of wasted space there and room to slide them out. If they were inside the PVC pipe wrapped in rags they wouldn't rattle.

Judging by your use of "quick fists" I assumed you were gay.

so you're wrapping your shaft in rags and stuffing it in a pipe.... who's gay again?

I carry a spare CV but no spare shaft, it fits in the gun box with my recovery gear. (watch me snap a shaft now)

I wheel with shafts that don't break, and don't carry spares. I highly recommend it. It's liberating.

I wonder how pretty your head would look with an axle shaft jammed in it after a crash or hard roll.

Melodramatic, but worth thinking about.

We all know HD shafts are the obvious solution, but that wasn't my question. I am curious to see what solutions people have for storing their shafts.

I was sooo thinking the same thing, but I didn't want "anyone" to get too butt hurt if I posted that. Thank you!

I understand the longtracks to be very good stuff... but I'd throw in that you're far from indestructible stuff here... (I 'sploded a heavy duty GBR CV running only 33s...)

My 110 has a Disco rear axle, so I am not wasting money on HD shafts since I am dropping in a Salisbury very soon.

Keep in mind a stock Sally is still 24 spline, that's crazy as there is so much potential there.
I don't carry spare axles or CV's either. The piggy's are heavy enough as it is..

True, but the ring and pinion are stronger

so what are we calling "indestructible" then? what have you got Buck running?

I know it's "possible" to break just about anything... but want to make sure my pennies are well spent...
