I just called out to tattons n sounds like a good deal. Spicer ujoints, and 6-7 inches of travel. 235$ shipped to me. Seems like he has a lot of good reviews too

X2 with Curtis (CJ) answering the phone. We spoke several times before I actually ordered. His warranty is the exact same as Tom Woods as well. Here are some pics of the one Mudvain mentioned in my XJ.

Price sure looks good, The U-Joints are spicer, Are all the other components? , It will be stamped somewhere on all the components.

I only ask because I am very familiar with the pricing on genuine spicer parts, and what they look like, and that price is just to good

What I was refering to were the rest of the components used to build the shaft, slip yoke, splined shaft, centering ball and H .

Its great that the U-Joints are spicer but it seems the other components would be just as important.

I am moving up to 4 inches of lift and am going to do a SYE and CV drive shaft... you can not beat that price! I like that there are spicer parts being used instead of a in house alternative... plus the price is right!

All of the build info for his driveshafts are on his ads. I know that once we upgrade the rear end in the YJ, we will replace the ds with a Tattons based on the one we currently have in my XJ (4.5in lift with aa sye)

I'm trying to figure out if I should wait till I have my sye installed to order a shaft from him or just let him build one off his figures.

Definately wait until you install the sye, once you so you will have to measure the distance between and call him with it. It only took a couple of days for him to build ours and forus to have it in hand
