That's a bummer. Mine got rips the first time I took it out to Prairie City though. I just ordered my driveshaft from Carolina this week. You are looking at around $360 shipped for a double/single shaft with yokes.

I know mtnmarc got his from a place in Auburn who has them made by Driveline Service of Sacramento. You could likely get a quote from them, but I chose Carolina because they had the most experience with WJ's.

Maybe mtnmarc will be getting rid of his front driveline now that he is installing a new axle. I'm sure he can chime in and let you know.

There is a place in Shingle Springs called Adco that I was going to get a quote from.

His DS will be to long wont it? I only have a 3" lift and he has TeraFlex 4" springs on his.

That's true, but if you decide to throw spacers on it will probably work.

Ordered 3/4" spacers from KOR and a new steering stabilizer from Kolak.

Next on the list is my drive shafts. A new one in the front and replace the u-joints in the rear.

My front shaft would probably work. I get some pretty nasty vibes at 65 and anytime I decelerate.

And my build has slowed down lately, so its gunna be at least 4 maybe 5 months before I start to build it.

Dont worry about it marc. I already plan on ordering a Carolina shaft with the yokes. I have a liking to buy things new. My wallet screams at me sometimes.

I know that feeling.

I'm buying all new stuff for my build, except axle housings of course. Ha.

Right now my wallet is screaming at me.... to put more money in it.

So with the spacers, you are pretty much at 4 inches right?

Do the 31s look small?

I've bought most of my stuff used. Lift, long arms, tires, wheels, roof rack and I'm sure more. My wallet loves me

The 31s dont look too bad. They are a good size for now, although i need to fix my bumpstops. I rub the back bumper when Im "fully" flexed. Once these tires are done I plan on cutting the fenders and running 33s like what Lakai did.

The only used thing I can think that I will be buying is a rear 44a axle.

I'll sell you my Dana 44a when the axle swap happens.

I've been trying to find someone to buy it.
