    Ok, money is no problem. What driveshafts do you recommend?
    I have a 77k5 with a 6" lift, th350,203, 12 bolt rear and dana44 up front. I hate having the feeling that my u-joint may go at anytime. I do not do any heavy wheeling, just light trails and streets. Suggestions? Is it possible for the ujoint breakage to be reduced with the right setup?

    You can replace the yokes on your 203 and 12 bolt with 1350's and run a 1-ton driveshaft.
    Honestly, for light duty the 1310's you have now are strong enough IMO. I recommend SPicer non-greasable ujoints.
    If you are running your stck driveshafts now, have them lengthened of course.

    and once again i am goin to mention the Driveline service BAMF DLS BAMF its a 42 Deg max angle shaft with joints equal to the size of 1410. i have hammered it and have yet to break it...i did bend the tube once and drove it like that for a month and still never wiped it out..i am very very happy with it.. if ya want one you have to call the fresno store...the person you need to talk to is chuck..
    just a side note...kinda funny how i got bashed about this drive line when less than a week later jess goes and buys 6 of em from driveline service...Driveline service is the only distribior in the western US for this brand of C/V. bring on the flamin because i know its comin
