Broken 2 Peice Shaft Again..

First Off. My Truck Is E99 Supercab LongBed 6SPEED, 158WB? Lifted With A 2" Or 4" Block In The Rear(Center Currier Shimmed, CC Bearing Was Also Replaced Couple Months Ago)

I Broke A Bolt On One Of The U-Joint Straps On The Rear Axle(Again...2nd Time) (Tore The Rear Piece Right Off) i was towing a vehicle up a incline in 4th gear(50-55MPH) about 10-14 PSI Boost. And It Broke And Shot The Driveshaft In The Freeway. (Everyone is fine, and no damage under the truck besides a nice mark on my gas tank)

my question is why do i keep snapping the bolts(getting tired of welding new ends on the tube and Balancing) Or What Kind Of MGR should i buy the strap kit from(was not more then 2 months old/5k miles) or should i go to a one piece shaft

i mostly do city driving, not much towing and average highway time. ideas will be considered.

i payed 200$ last time, im fine spending more money to get it right and not have to do it again. Ill Post A Picture Of It Soon

when you say you tore the rear piece right off do you mean you like ripped the straps off? im assuming if you have it balanced somewhere they obviously have it phased right....
