New Trail Gear Product: rear Driveline Disconnect--I want

so not sure when this thing will be out, but I would like one
allows true front digs:
http://www.trail-gear.com/vbulletin/...ed=1#post51206
with the added length I wonder if the Front and rear Drive shaft length would be close enough that they would be interchangeable..it would be nice to carry one spare instead of two





being able to flat tow with out having to have a full floater with Hubs (like the FROR kit, though I still want that too) and having to pop the rear D/S would be nice.

Yep. Front digs are cool.

I bet it ain't cheap! It's also not allowed in the Ftoy class.

Stupid, noobie question, but why would you want to make you rig FWD, even temporarily?

also allows you to flat tow easier than dropping the rear driveshaft.
My flat bed trailer was unavailable so I used a tow dolley. it was raining and i was tired. didn't feel like pulling the rear d/s. one the way home truck slipped into gear, toasted my front T/C and transmission. very expensive lesson..
allow allows you to pull yourself around a tight obstacle using the front wheels...having the ability to just apply pressure to your rear brakes helps too...like cutting brakes. I had them on my old V-dub bug...made for some fun in the sand

Cool, thanks for the explanation. I did google "front dig," so I definitely understand it now.

More goodies for all-out builds and for the rest of us to drool over.

Very cool, it also looks like a way better setup than the front range driveline disconnect.

Will kinda suck for us short wheel base guys with dual cases.

I am one of those short wheel base guys too...I wonder how close the measurements would be with this installed between front and rear driveshafts...if it got close enough it would be nice to only carry one spare D/S
