I was looking into it and measured mine. It looks like mine binds at about 26 degrees. I figure 40 is the least I need to make it work. I will try to get this measured and give those guys a call. I think the ones I seen affered that have a 40 degree angle would work. Thanks for the info bud.

Well I did get it today. Here is a link to a pic.

Unfortunately it is about 2 inchs too short. I gotta call them back right now and someone was seeing whose mistake it was. But i was on the phone with the guy when he explained the measurement he needed. So I will have to most likely send it back and have them fix it. The shaft is binding at the axle also so I am going to have to either clearance my existing yolk or get the 1 ton one from them (probably the 1 ton its just money right :( well anyway I was excited right before I had to put it on. That is the way of the world I guess

Mike :(

oooooo looks perty. I would go with the 1 ton myself. Just a personel preferance that if I have to replace it might as well upgrade it. nothing worse then spending money twice on something.

I did get that to fit by the way. I start to see about a eight of an inch of spines if I have the front springs fully extened. but being that that will MOST LIKELY never happen I should be fine. I had to clearance my yolk at the pinion quite a bit but it SHOULD be fine.

How much was that driveshaft? My front driveshaft is shot, U-Joints, CV, even the splines are wore out. Currently I have just removed it, but now with the snow, maybe I should fix it.

600 bucks......if you don't need a high angle shaft as I did (9" of suspension lift or more) you can get a normal driveshaft from most parts stores rebuilt with all new components for a fraction of that. Or you can go stronger if you wheel a lot with a shaft from Arizona drivelines built to 3/4 ton or 1 ton specs. www.arizonadrivelines.com If it is just a daily driver though Napa or even Checkers probably can hook you up cheap.
