Slyco drivelines just off of 1-15 and 1300 S in salt lake does good work.

Thanks guys. So, why would I not just buy a driveshaft from Quadratec like: http://www.quadratec.com/products/52301_98X0_PG.htm and install it rather than going to a shop? I guess my question is what more is a shop going to do than bolt a new one on?

It would really depend on your application. My jeep for example has 60's, a tummy tuck skid plate, motor mount lift, etc... so finding one that is specific to my application would be difficult. Now if you were running stock axles and mostly stock things and just put a 4" lift on then you probably are fine buying one from quadratec since that is generic enough they already have figured out the dimensions and such.

Edit: Now that ive looked at the link its actually just them reselling tom woods drive lines. With any driveline you can actually measure for it on your own at your home, then provide that info to a tom woods or other shops and they can make it for you that way. With how close i currently live to the driveline shops it just makes me feel better knowing they took the measurments and its going to be a perfect fit.

Ok, thank you for clearing that up. Are the local shops manufacturing these shafts or buying them (at a specific length) from the manufacturer, like Tom Woods Inc.?

I just did a quick google search for Tattons Drivelines and all I am reading are great things. I just called and he quoted me $375 and a couple days to build it.

Tom Woods is located up in Ogden. They built my driveshaft to and i just provided them the measurements. My Dad was working up there at the time so he just picked it up at their shop. So Far i have no complaints on their work.

6 states and gaylons down here make them in house as does tattons. I'm sure they could order a Tom woods shaft for you if you wanted one but there would probably be a mark up on it.
