    Has anybody ever used this before and if so should i buy it from the site or is it easy enough for a local driveline shop to make?

    I'm always a fan of used parts....

    You can do a NP205 CV from 78-79 Bronco parts.

    Or find a 70's RWD Caddy for the CV slip shaft - for any 32-spline slip-yoke t-case.

    Then you are just having a shaft shortened, spliced, or re-rubed (as usual).

    I have a caddy shaft here, thought it would be a great idea, angularity is minimal at best, no way I could run it on my rig, with only 4" of lift. HAD does a 32 spline flange, and then you use a ford superduty front driveshaft CV joint (1350's). Works great. Easy to drop the whole driveshave at need as well
