    Last weekend I trashed my front drive shaft when a u-joint failed. The guys at INLAND TRUCK PARTS AND SERVICE (Denton, Tx) did a great job of building me a new shaft assembly. Just wanted to let everyone know these guys do good work.

    Yeah, they do good work, but MAN, they are expensive!!! I needed a rear shaft for my one ton made, and the original one was the big 4 to 5 inch shaft. They wanted 600.00 to make one like the original. Whoa! So they said they could make one 3 to 4 inch for 400.00. That one I took, but geez, thats still MUCHO dough!!!

    The front shaft with new cv and u-joints(spicer) cost $196.00. All the other places I called wanted $210 to $225 for the shaft.
