You should make one yourself from PVC and fill it with concrete.

That sounds in line with the quotes I received.

But I've never actually bought one. Being Jesus and all, I usually whittle mine from billet steel with a bastard file.

I think that's about right. I've paid $205 for a YJ with a double carden but it's alow shorter too. The DS shop here in lansing usually charges about $250 for a front YJ driveshaft (standard u-joints). It's more like what you're having done. I've had a new slip yoke put in my rear DS and it cost about $120.

It still won't be as strong as the PVC. Why don't you make a mock up out of straws from McDonalds first to make sure your angles are right?

I would get a longer shaft than what you need as long as it has the right ends. It is like $45 to have them cut down...
