i make my own too this way i know it is done right, usually double up the wall thickness while m at it..

try a local fab shop..

u sure u have to lenghten it how much liftput in ? the pinion on the 14blt is much longer than your oem p.o.s
and did u measure staic length and compressed as well as exteneded to derive a final size or just guess at 2"

there is a wear mark on my slip yoke where it ran in the seal all its stock life. i lined it up with the seal and measuered. got 2 inchs, then i made sure i had even slip both compressing and extending, and im good...[cheers]

and because the 14 bolt pinion is so big i only have to extend it 2 inchs iunstead of 12[9]

Find a shaft with the yokes you need thats too long and shorten it. or just a drive shaft with the same diameter thats too long. This way you don't have to pay the huge price fur DS tubeing.

2", why bother with lengthening it? you prob have 8" of slip to begin with am i right? so 6" now? the driveshaft will prob only move an inch anyways

there was an excellent write-up with pictures and simple hand tools( no lathe) to make your own driveshafts, but i cant find it. It was on pirate.

rem,ember when your springs drop it moves the axle forward.

I've got 4" total slip on my rear shaft (2 comp, 2 ext) and have never had a problem, even with the amount of droop the revolvers give me.


one time my rear shaft poped out was the first time I broke in moab at mickey's hot tub. tsiwsted the sdhaft which ended up shortening it about 2"[27]

[stupid] much cheaper this way and better chance that it will be strait
