Here at Firepunk we are always looking for ways to go faster. BUT one of this biggest things that a lot of people overlook as we keep pushing these trucks is safety. We have seen and heard a lot of horror stories about the Cardan joint failing and the damage it can cause. When that joint fails it can break transmissions cases, wrap up wiring, puncture fuel lines and cause fires.
We ended up designing this Driveshaft loop to help minimalize damage caused by this failure. The loop mounts in the 2 transmission crossmember bolt holes with the provided bolts for a simple install.
Disclaimer: The “Q” Loop is designed to minimize damage from a Cardon Joint Failure, It IS NOT guaranteed to prevent any damage, as we often see the T-case broken when the center pin in the Cardon breaks and the two u-joints go into a bind, it has no choice but to break the T-case. The “Q” Loop’s intended purpose is to keep a broken drive shaft from spinning against the transmission case, and also the fuel lines, brake lines and wiring harness that run beside it on the frame as there have often been reports of fires from the fuel lines being punctured. We recommend changing your front driveshaft every 100k miles as preventative maintenance, and run the “Q” Loop as an insurance policy to prevent a very expensive repair if the driveshaft does fail.
