    found a shaft on another forum that might fit the bill for my new front driveshaft after the doubler is built. what i would like to know is, what is the length of your front driveshaft on your doubler setup? i would like to have a general idea so i know if this one would likely work or not. thanks

    i know, i guess what i should have said was, how much longer is it than the shaft you were running before installing it? i know its longer but i forget how much longer it makes it.

    it all depends on the lift. although the tcase may be 4" farther back (not sure if that the number or not, just throwing one out there) the shaft will may need to be more than 4" longer because of the angle

    I once tried to figure out what i would need for a front driveshaft when going from a 700R4/241 to a 700R4/203/205 and from as far as i could tell the front shaft was going to be the exact same length.
