I thought this would be about finding something rude in the glovebox.

In this case, tie wraps would be better.

Coat hangers are more durable.

Bearings? A little pile of black dust on the driveway.

I know that vibration all to well.   (keep your mind out of the gutter Cookie)

One time i dropped the drive shaft off the transfer case. I was able to stop before it did any damage.



And talking about Jeeps i just replaced the power steering pump on a friends Wrangler today. Think this was making some noise.

Surprisingly the pump was only $70 bucks. It was the easiest pump i have ever replaced.

Those might be too strong, he might twist his driveshaft using the green ones.

That's what the duct tape is for.

Drive shaft in. It is almost smooth again! Now if I could just park it until next January.
