Well..i tried to get parts to build a drive shaft...couldn't find anything to fit, in order to sleeve it, inside or out so i just buty welded some 2" conduit to the 2.5" factory driveshaft...looks straight ish..
May vibrate a little, and unsure of how itd handle the rock bashing..
Good thing the conduit was cheap..

Good thing its installed already.
Be careful on the gas:p








Hahah just kidding..shaft is in..and good n straight!
:thumbup:

Sended frum da cumputar box in my hands eh.

I may have to limit the uptravel on the passenger side because the track bar might get close to the pitman arm nut, but I don't see any problems.

Full lock driverside



Full lock passenger side



Front shot, just imagine a drag link



When I get tires on and a drag link on, I'll flex it out and look again, but I don't see any issues.
