Update:Friday, 9/1 - Well, I went back today and actually found it (or what's left of it).
Also went to stealership and got the entire shaft package.
It was $194.58
(includes the diff flange, u-joints, yoke and of course shaft).
Will be (4) bolts and 10 minutes. It will be in when we get back
from Vegas next week.










But really, I can't find it. It fell off on the freeway today.
I was cruisin in the HOV lane and hear a shatter
(what sounded like an explosion). It was hard enough to knock
my radio faceplate out! AnyWho I didn't know what it was
at that point so I automatically slow down and look back
(thank goodness no one was behind me). I have a driveshaft loop but it's close to the front. Now I'll have to put another one on, close to the rear.

I was able to roll all the way to the right and off the freeway and just take a right and that's all she had. Called a tow truck and she's in the garage.
I posts pics in a bit. It tore the differential housing and actually broke it.
I haven't had a chance to look at the tranny end yet! Shocked Shocked

Roger, that had to bee one heck of a ride. I have wondered what would happen when it dropped. Did it drop from the front or the rear. Guess the rear for you didn't pole vault. What kinda damage did it do to your floor pan. That had to make some real noise. How fast were you going. Glad you are alright for sure!!!!!

I just got back from the freeway to look for my driveshaft and
it's nowhere to be found, Gone!

To answer a few posts...
I didn't wrench it lately (probably my problem) I pmight have seen something out of place or loose.
Yes, I do Drive It Like I Stole It!
I say part of the blame is because of the infamous "Hemi Torque'!
You're right, if I were to have went to Indy I would have checked everything and probably found the thing loose or something.
I hard launch constantly (someday I might grow up)
and I plead the 5th on my speed!
