    Don't laugh at the 12 bolt in the pic /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif.
    This pic shows the diameter of my original driveshaft. I have always had people comment about its "girth" /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif Does any one else have a factory shaft that big?

    Mines the same aswell. I think most half ton with autos have the smaller driveshaft. /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif

    my 1/2 ton has the same driveline, but it's not the 'original' one (that one broke in half at 30+MPH grenading my x-fer case and cracking the bellhousing on the 700R4).
