I had custom driveshafts and actually just replaced them after my stretch with rebuilt driveshafts.

I took a front output yoke off a Cherokee so I could run a lengthened and balanced front double cardon shaft (total cost $140 for jy shaft, ujoints, yoke, lengthen and balance) and I rebuilt and had shortened and balanced a thicker old school waggy front drive shaft (total cost $115).

The drive shafts are perfect, like new and just as good as my previous custom shafts. All the parts said Spicer (from the junkyard) and we're shiny and like new when I replaced what was needed.

My only vibrations now are due to unbalanced spare I'm running.

We used a front XJ shaft that we took to a local shop for our YJ and we had a CJ tatto rear DS in my XJ. (CJ Tatton has the same warranty as Woods, less cost)

Correct. I'm just wondering what game plan is best as far as shaft selection with regard to type. I have a double cardon slip shaft from a ZJ that I'm seriously contemplating making work. Maybe with the DOM hack and weld method posted earlier in this thread.

I actually pulled a great shaft off the old body Wagoneer in the junkyard. I would examine any shaft you pick.
