Default Driveshafts near Detroit???

Hi all! I am new to the forum and am not really sure where to post this. Hopefully I did it right, if not, move it along to wherever is best.
I just wanted to know if any of you guys in the Detroit metro area know of a good driveshaft shop, maybe a shop that can regear me as well. I'm not sure yet how much money I have to work with, so I'm not sure if I am going to wait on the regear or not, but at the very least, I will need new driveshafts soon.

Heres a pic of my rig, so far:


Thanks for any help you all can provide!

Dammit, there is a place on 9 mile road, just east of Gratiot that builds/modifies driveshafts. I had them do some work for me a couple years ago. The name will pop into my tiny brain soon enough.

They do regearing too?? I'm thinking of getting all this stuff done at once within the next year...

Any other suggestions?

I also found some place called Drive Line Specialists on Groesbeck in Warren. Not sure if they do the install, but form their site, it looks like you can find everything driveline related there. Also... ever heard of Shaftmasters in Lincoln Park?
I want something that will last forever even with beating on it on the trails up in the mountains in PA, where I spend about half my time...

x2 on Jeeperz Creeperz. Kevin (owner/ operator) is a great guy, VERY supportive of the sport, and donates a huge amount of time/money/effort/parts to the local wheelers.

Plus I hear he does great work.

Haha. He's the guy who did my lift install!! Never thought to ask him about the driveshafts and regearing. And yea, Kevin is the man. He did everything and did a great job. gave me a great price too. I might have to go back to him once I break a shaft, which I'm sure will happen. Haha.
