    Fuel cell tech for dummies

    I've been reading up on fuel cells but still have a couple questions- mabey I'm just overthinking. I thought "fuel cells" had a plastic or rubber bladder and foam inside. So I am looking at the RCI 2161A for my jeep but it appears to have no bladder or foam. In fact many of the advertised...

    Yokes and drivelines

    Strap and bolt method seems to work fine for road driving and light wheeling but obviously is NOT up to the task of rock crawling. So I will be upgrading but I was looking for input from others on what is best. I have Dana 44s with 1330 joints and all the angles are good. U-bolt yokes-...
