    like a small tube going into a bigger tube so that it could get longer and shorter while you are offroading.

    yea i dont knwo about that diagram /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif but look under a Chevrolet that has a 208 or 241 they have a slip joint drive shaft that can get longre and shorter when needed, and on the rear you have a slip yoke so your drive shaft can slide in and out of the of the t-case

    well rouned tube inside round tube wouldn't work out too well. sort of wouldn't transfer power. Square tube would work and is used by some around here. But yeah umm yeah all trucks have some type of slip joint in the driveshafts. Can just get those longer or modified or whatever.
