    Ok so apparently my 2017 6.2 ( been told by a Ford engineer that worked on the alumaduty that it's the old raptor motor). All that said leaving a stop light on flat ground pulling my 22' tritoon I heard a loud noise.

    Truck had 51k miles on it. Ford towed it and fixed it no questions.

    Not to dispute what you’re saying / dealing with.... I have a 6.2 3:73 gears in a cc short box and it’s not a power house.

    Why does it look polished at the area where it failed?

    That's why it failed to the best of my knowledge. There was a tin foil covered piece of cardboard that was supposed to be a heat shield. It had come loose in the to past ( it's held on by tape or something) and fixed. Apparently it had come loose again and was polishing the aluminum. The dealer added zip ties to the heat shield after replacing the drive shaft.

    The part about " too much power" was a joke! The truck does everything I need it to do but could use a few more ponies lol

    Nice to see Furd making driveshafts out of Sno's recycled aluminum foil helmets.

    You would’ve thought the driveshaft would’ve been stronger because all I use is the heavy duty tinfoil

    This is the piece of insulation/heat shield that was apparently touching the drive shaft. You can see the half circle worn into it.

    Note that zip tie! The rest of that material is held on by the plastic push pins. Pretty sad that a piece of thermol ply can weaken a drive shaft. Anything in the name of light weight and fuel saving I guess.....
