am i getting the joan collins special?

....on my driveshaft? my front shaft was more bent and twisted than an S&M loving midget who just watched the movie Hostel upon his release from the pen.

the new one is gonna be 2" diameter and i think .125 wall (i could be wrong on that) and is gonna cost $199 seemed kinda steep but i gave the green light anyway. what do yall think? am i getting ripped? obviously its gonna be way more beef than stocker......

for around here that seems resonable... just be sure to look it over a bit before handing over the cash, and make sure you get everything needed.

You paid an S&M loving midget $ 200 to build you a twisted drive shaft and the midget stole your movie tickets????? WHAT?

--- $ 199 doesn't sound too bad to me.

I'll have to agree $200 is a reasonable price to pay for a complete D-shaft, especially if they're using heavy tubing and the extended length of the front shaft.

Yeah, that's a good price. However I'd be a little cautious of the 2" tubing on the front shaft. I'm thinking there might not be enough room between the skid and the shaft for suspension droop. I wouldn't want to pay for a stronger shaft and then have it bouncing off the skid everytime you hit a bump or flexed out wheeling.
