    My 4" lift has exetended my front driveshaft to it's limits, so, I need something to fix it. I'm on a tight budget, and I would rather go with used parts on this, as I only use 4WD for moderate mudding. Anyone have something to help me out?

    What kind of length are you looking for. Ive got a couple that are longer than the stock shaft. Also, depending on where you are in IL, I may be able to deliver since Ill be heading to St. Louis either this week or next.

    Hm. I'll pull the shaft tonight, and do some measurements. I have been advised to try to free up the shaft that I have, as it might not be too short, just really sticky. I'll post tonight whether I need it, and if so, what size.
    Thanks.

    Pulled the shaft last night,and cleaned all the grease out of it, to free it up. Found out that I don't need a new driveshaft, I just need to learn more about the drivetrain components of this thing.
    I wanna say that I do appreciate you guys offering your parts for sale when I thought I needed them, and hope that, if I need parts again, I won't be considered "the boy who cried wolf"...

    No problem. While you have it out, might as well go ahead and grind off the ears to ot as well. Jut had to do it to mine when I went taller.
