    I'm in need of some advice. I've been searching around and asking tons of people what to do. I just did a axle swapp to a 14 bolt and a new 6 " lift, so ofcourse, you guessed it the driveshaft is to short. I need something that I can beat on that will hold up on the rocks. So should I just extend my stock driveshaft or pay more for a CV joint. What are you die hard rock crawler guys running?
