    You mean the safety loop in case a U-joint pukes?

    I think Summit Racing carries universal ones, they are adjustale to fit just about anything.

    I think you are talking about a driveshaft safety loop. They typically go at the output end of your transmission. Since the tranny end of your driveshaft moves up and down very little throughout it's range of motion, it's easy to put a loop and keep the front of the driveshaft contained in the event of a u-joint failure.

    That being said, it would be much harder to run a similar setup at your axle end. Since your axle cycles up and down, it would be hard to put a safety loop.

    You could do what the monster truck guys do and build a driveshaft encompassing cage that goes from your tranny to your axle, allowing the entire cage to cycle up and down with your suspension. Might become an anchor while wheeling though.

    The one's I've seen are oval, to allow for up and down, and go near the middle of the drive shaft.

    But you're right, not good for wheeling.
