    Anyone running one? My factory one is in bad shape and I need to replace it.

    So, is it worth the $$$ they want for it?

    I have one and loveit!
    The only thing is I wish I had the extra cash to get the vibration dampner. My steering wheel doesn't visably shake but my hands can feel it after a long road trip. I have seen rag joints fail and having a ujoint instead is a good feeling of safty. Loosing steering is not a good thing!!
    I say goForit

    Ditto, but I got the vibration dampener. One of the best mods I ever did. Steering actually feels easier (less effort, but could just be my imagination), and it is definitely tighter (not my imagination).

    I just bought a shaft from a 79' CJ, for $25 bucks, it's basically the same thing.
