    That is a typical price.
    It's not a great deal and he's not robbing you blind.
    :D

    stevewix,

    I am purcahsing one from an outfit in Arizona. CV with 208 slip yoke that replaces stock driveline (w/1310 joint), $295. Week and a half backlog. They also offer 1 ton 1350 joint shafts

    They also offer a SYE slip yoke that is bolted to the output shaft after the shaft is drilled and tapped. Not at all like the SYE kit for the 241's. Not sure if they work as well. I think the 208 SYE is $185.

    Not sure if we are allowed to mention vendors who don't support this site. If we can I will mention, if not please PM me.

    Jess for my application, hopefully I don't need any luck and it will work.

    It will have to last for a couple of years, until I can replace the 10 bolt axles with something stronger. Not sure what the real weak link is, but stock 10 bolt axles have to be high on the list.

    I am not a real serious wheeler, yet, when I do get serious, I will look you up.
    Pat.
