    that thing will work. there was one on my last rig i bought. i strongly recommend not using it & spending the green$ to have your shaft lengthened by a driveline shop. it is the only right way to fix it.

    Hey,
    If you have a flange style front drive output on your transfer case you can use this extension. It is 1 inch thick and is used for the front driveshaft if it uses a flange. I have one on my truck and it works out great. It is solid metal and is very beefy. My u joints/or driveshaft would break way before this thing would even think about it. It worked well for my 6 inch front springs.

    that spacer would be perfect..no need for over 100$ in driveshaft work when a 20 dollar piece will suffice..

    After what height lift does a longer driveshaft/extension become necessary? I'm looking to lift my '73 4-6" and this thread has got me thinking I may be forgetting some important factors to consider.

    [​IMG] Here's a picture of mine. Its the spacer to the right of the transfer case flange. It's 1 inch thick. I'm using it with a 6 inch lift and it works fine. I'm not sure where the best place to get it is, I got mine from the local 4x4 shop.
