Can you make a Double Cardan drive shaft?

I'm throwing around the idea of making a Double Cardan (CV) Drive shaft and would like anyone's; a good jeep forum bashing, opinion. The Idea is using something like two 1310 Flange U Joints and bolting or welding them back to back and then attaching it to your drive shaft that is at the proper length and everything else that entails. Anyway I have no problem being a guinea pig on this. How else are we all suppose to find cheaper mods. Let it begin.

pick up the shaft from
1. jeep xj front
2. jeep tj front
3. most gm truck front
4. some ford trucks
or pick up a carrier from spicer for around $30 that makes a non cv in to a cv
it's called a Center "H" Yoke

Ah...Well easier that way I suppose. So, shorten them to length and get em balanced and it should be good right? Would this theory work though?

yep thats all there is to it.
i would rebuilt it with new joints if it were me.

if you are going SYE with your 8.8 i would order it with a 1330 yoke and get the shaft from a ford exploer(1330).

Dude,
Good U-Joints cost lots of $$$, and cheap U-Joints leave you stranded. Go straight to Tom Woods and buy a quality CV shaft and stop worrying. I have tried the cheap route and it costs me money everytime.

Oh no,no I'm not worried. I just thought of a crazy idea and wondered if it was a plausible theory. Now if it could be done "safely" I would attempt it and put it to the test. Maybe not the high intense off roading but some trail riding. But some things can be easier built with above 'said' post #2. Thanks as I do agree with buying quality to achieve the desired effect.
