    What drive shaft do you guys think is best and what size? The one's on my K5 look kinda small,and I'm worried that I will be on the trail doing a bit of crawlin' or boggin' and the drive shaft will break or twist.

    really want to recommend the search feature to you - it will yield TONS of results on this topic as well as the other threads you've posted up. that being said, i don't know anything about driveshaft tech, so i can't help much. however, i do know this topic has been covered alot.

    if its a trail only machine, save your money and consider square shafts... I don't have any pics of mine before install, but...

    I would venture to say your stock shafts will be just fine. I have been Rock crawling on mine for 2 years now and haven't even busted a u joint in them.

    I do however carry spares for the front and rear. At the cost of High end drivelines, I have no problems running my stock ones and feeling good about it.
