    I've seen a couple guys on pirate running them on fullsize rigs. They have a 1 ton rating and are made for 41 degree use. With my 6" front lift and clocking my transfer case up soon I'm worried the 1350 will bind too bad. H.A.D. makes a flange for the dana 60 to bolt up the yota u-joint.

    Anybody on here running one or has looked into running one?

    Big a$$ flange :haha: also from Jesse and HAD. th350 /203 clocked 90*to the pass side, with a frod 205 flat to the drivers side. One thing to note is you can/might have clearance issuses with the trans and the one ton cv from HAD..If you are running just a trans to 205 setup!! Sorry I guess I don't have a picture of the drive shaft....but the cv is around 5" od

    WHen running higher lift or say clocking the tcase up and a flat belly pan with lift your drive shaft angles are much steeper. A stock drive shaft maxes out around 30*... My shaft at ride height is 29*.....so it wouldn't last to long with a stock shaft...So the need for 42*cv and yota flange.

    So you have a 1350 CV at the t-case and a yota u-joint at the axle correct? That is how I'm looking to do mine but a guy on pirate suggested putting a Toyota u-joint on both ends to keep it simple.

    Are the toyota pieces all stock parts that can be pulled off of a junk yard driveshaft? Other then the flange to a 60. Or is there special milling/drilling that needs to be done to them to get the 42*?

    Toyota stuff works 85 up non c/v 41 degree - there tough because there all steel- I have ran about 500 ft lbs thru mine and it is working well- Jess

    Is there a Toy style flange available for the 32 spline 205 output? This looks interesting but I'm not sure how to do the top end of the shaft?

    Jesse, what are you using on your Toy style shaft - a regular or extra long slip yoke assembly?

    im still confused how the toy u-joint is able to handle that much more angle than the normal u-joint if its just a stock part...?? does it have to do with the flange?

    I think it has more to do with the yoke design and material being better preventing joint failure. I think...


    I'm hoping Jesse will see this and chime in with some nice tech.

    We can run the 5 1/2 slip- or 12 " slip either one- and yes we do make the 32 spline flange from a billit- JEss

    Would the Toy style shaft be stronger than say a typical 1350 equipped shaft (non cv for both)?
