Today, having a new 3.5" dia. driveshaft w/slip shaft & companion flange, built for my GMT425, 59.25" long, 14 bolt ff to t-case flange.
Then I have to finish the 9.25" IFS diff w/ARB locker and a new shaft for that, trying to convince boss-lady, I need the RCV performance axles for that too.

I couldn't bring myself to buy a $2500 set of half shafts, not when stockers are well documented holding up to 4 digit power. I did just put a set of rockford thermoplastic cv boots in mine because I got tired of the neoprenes failing after 3 years. It was a bit of a pain though because they had the boots & grease, but were out of the clamps. So I had to go to belmetric online and order some oetiker 163 clamps, 4 #120's and 4 #40's. They were a bit tall for the inner side, but overall are really nice boots.

Forgot to mention, its 1410 w/U-bolts & Spicer solid joints.
Crush sleeves, are now a thing of the past as a bushing kit w/washers now replaces the crush sleeve.
