    Ok I need a longer driveshaft and I can chose from this www.highangledriveline.com for $419 or should I go get my driveshaft done? What would be cheaper?

    Hey Chris,

    I too am in the same boat. With my 383 stroker and D60/14BFF combo, I debated. Jesse's reputation at HighAngle is beyond reproach. He has so many satisfied customers and I've dealt with a few other companies who work closely to him. They have nothing but great things to say about him. He really cares about his work.

    One of the things I tried to do when building my "perfect" rig, was to eliminate as many weak links in the drive train as possible. It all came down to the drive shafts. I cannot expect 1/2 ton drive shafts to pull duty with so much torque and big 39.5" Swampers. Okay, the investment will be prolly 1200.00+/- for two 1 ton driveshafts front and rear. I already spent $200.00 with Jesse for replacement pinion yokes with u-bolts rather than straps/saddles. Worth it? You betcha, especially when I'm door deep in MUD and I'm trying to spin my way out. The initial cost will soon be a memory and I'll be grateful that my shafts haven't grenaded.

    What's the saying.... Quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten.

    I say, invest and go with Jesse! You won't be disappointed

    Season Greetings, and Merry Christmas!

    Manny

    Hey,

    When you call Jesse, let him know Manny from Fort Hood, TX., referred you. I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks,

    Manny
