    I found that site as well, but they are still paint to match unfortunately I'll be fixing with epoxy and see if it will take the beating better

    It’s not really noticeable unless you just know they’re not supposed to be there. Between those two fasteners and some 3M tape, it’s getting me by until the day comes to break down and paint the whole truck. Putting that off as long as possible as I know I will want to protect it from road scars and damage and right now I’m down to just trying not to acquire and metal damage! Lol

    Sounds like a good plan ... but I will bet that fix would last forever

I forgot about the washers I'll need to go grab some on Monday. but I have other news..... my drive shaft on the truck split in half while I was on the interstate :( thank God they put a shield arround the fuel tank

    Looks great .. yeah washers needed ,,, makes me still wish mine didn’t explode into pieces when it flew off and hit the windshield..

    Wow I’ve never seen a driveshaft do that in my entire life .. wonder why it happened ?

    That’s crazy!!! Almost had to have been a failed universal building up heat and compromising the drive shaft until it failed as well. Glad the damage was kept to a minimum!

    The work on the hood insert looks good! I have 3M taped mine several times over the years but it always works it’s way back up and now I’m to the point that it’s so out of shape it will not even fit the hood properly. I’m assuming the age of the plastic combined with the constant expanding/retracting that occurs on every drive, eventually warps the plastic putting enough pressure on the little keeper nuts to finally break the studs. It also probably doesn’t help that I currently only have two attachment points as opposed to the four that originally fastens it down a little tighter. Sorry for the long post.....guess I’m board today.

    yeah I was looking for a new universal joint and some one replied to one of my comments the day the drive shaft exploded so a little to late it was making a little noise on shift but I didn't think it was in that bad of shape since my truck only has 62k on it but that u joint bracket on the shaft was completely ripped apart. I have the insert attached back on and it looks great I used an over sized nut that had a flange instead of washers to reduce stress on the epoxy

    The plastic on mine was very brittle when I gathered up the prices I could find it broke more with finger pressure .. cheap crap

    I saw that thread about the Ujoints ... fling driveshafts are nothing to shake a leg at .. my previous girlfriends son lost the driveshaft on the highway and lost control of the vehicle .. luckily he got it stopped without hitting anything .. your must have either completely seized up or fell apart cause a complete imbalance of the spinning shaft

    that's another idea of that I think happened as well. but there are the black marks that look like something struck it so I have no idea how it happened. I was changing lanes then all of a sudden I hear a thud and a muffled sliding noise from a softer material and then another thud then chaos under my truck and then silence followed by my drive shaft rolling behind me

    Have you checked the yokes in the trans and rear for damage also .. also the rear seal in the trans ..
    I know there are some vendors that have and maybe still do the carbon fiber drive shafts ... not sure on the performance and longevity of those .. jtsvp I believe s one of the companies that does them .. price unknown .. but Tony is the main man and a great guy that backs everything he does ..

    I have the yoke's seems good the only thing left was the pinion that inserts into the trans with the u joint up there in the back the u joint was gone and the bolts that held the straps were sheared. I drilled and removed them to check the threads. all is good just the shaft was ripped apart and destroyed. some damage to my exhaust no holes and hangar bolt was bent, fuel tank shield was dented and that's all for damage under it
