Loud Bang as I pulled into work, followed by clunk.

Coasted into my parking spot and see the picture I attached.

So U-joint and rear drive shaft were the culprits.

Easiest way is to just replace the drive shaft? Best place to pick one up?

Thank you for any help.

I would just go Tom Woods: http://www.lucky8llc.com/Products.aspx?ProductID=7588 unless you are budget constrained.

Looks like your yoke and/or flange may be damaged....

If not, just rebuild with new u-joints.

Take it to a driveline shop. Easy fix for them to put in a new yoke and u joint. Not costly either.
You can run it with just the front.

I'd think this a bad idea. I'd remove it from the back of the transfer case before trying to drive it, but maybe that is just me?

HA, Nice pic. Just wanted to let everybody know got the new drive line installed, 28 1/2 for mine with the OME lift.

I have had the rover for 14 years now and I have always had driveline play and slop.

Now it is so quiet, it is like a new Defender. Best $300 I have ever spent!
