After adding my Clayton 3.5 inch lift, which is actually 4.5 in the front, I knew I would need to replace my driveshaft eventually, I just thought it would last more than two trips, I had my jeep in four-wheel-drive probably a grand total of maybe 50 miles max.

anyhow, what is everyone’s preferred driveshaft? Adam’s, Tom Woods, JE reel, something else?

See if you have a local drive line shop, you can get it faster and usually cheaper.

Also, the factory style ends are available so you DON'T have to change them at diff and transfer case.

I remember when Tom Woods didn't have a website. You had to call him on the phone, most often Tom picked up. He would tell you to crawl under your Jeep and take measurements while you were on the line. One time I told him I didn't have a cordless phone and he told me to drive my Jeep inside to get closer. Huh? I'm pretty sure he was joking.
