Aftermarket driveshafts

Recommendations for aftermarket driveshafts? Wanna throw a new front one on when I get my bds 3" lift but need a little help with which one to pick and diffrences between all of em. Rear shaft can wait as I heard its not as urgent to replace that one

Tattons makes a nice product. Have any local driveline shops that can make one for you? (I've went both routes and local is of course cheaper but quality is on the same level)

Adams driveshaft Henderson NV. Go to the website or call ask for Jim or John they can fab anything from Jeeps to the big long Las Vegas limos. They all wheel Jeeps on the weekends so they are good.

Ya ill end up calling a place like Adams or Somin maybe tom woods. I asked the local machine shop that I'm getting the lift through and the owner said its not even worth fabbing because they would have to get one from a junkyard and cut it/ balance it and all that nonsense. It seems easier to just call an expert place like Tom woods

Matter of choice depending on what type of wheeling you do. If you get greaseable then just be sure to actually do it. And dealing with the needle fitting on the centering ball can be a PITA.

Yea actualy I retract my previos statement. I prefer greaseable. But im a guy who grew up greaseing farm equipment so I keep mine well maintained cuz ive had to do that sort of thing since I was ten. Its simpler to get tje greasless but id say from wat ive seen from all sorts of differwnt bearings greasable tends to last longers as long as u maintain them properly
