Stock or Hemi upgraded? This sounds more like an affect of a hemi on the stock system vs a stock on stock system. What front/rear axle's are being run? The after market 60's & the hd44's run a heavier setup than the 30's have.

I'd be pissed if I was your boss and you broke my JK's U-Joint doing doh-nutz in the parkinglot

Seriously tho, I worry about mine, I can see a little "bleeding" onto the surrounding area (looks wet sometimes) but so far so good, Im sure only a matter of time b4 mine goes.

A 6.1 Hemi is obviously going to put more strain on the whole drivetrain. Obviously, how you drive will make a big difference, but the fact you are putting a blower on a 6.1 Hemi kind of suggests you use that right pedal a bit.

You don't say how it went bad. Did it just develop some play, or did a cap walk off off?
