Is this right for a Tom Woods driveshaft?

Is this the actual price or am I reading this wrong?
Quote:
For the Double Cardan (CV) drive shaft we have two options available. Upgraded heavy wall tube larger/stronger slip yoke & spline stub (S spline) @ $269 or the top of the line shaft with the longer travel slip & spline (XC OR XB spline, see sidebar at bottom of page) for $299. Of course, these would be built with our “Gold-Seal” universal joints. For long term value, We consider the top of the line shaft to be the best value.
Quoted from Here from the Tom Woods website.

I might be missing something here, that seems pretty cheap to me. I know Tom Woods is a good company.

Sounds about right to me . . . I got the CV DS they make for the Rubicon and I'm pretty sure it set me back about 300. I've heard from several people that Tom Woods really takes care of his customers if they have any issues with the DS he sells.

Ok cool, I know Tom Woods is great, my buddy recently got a drive shaft from them and Tom Woods himself made sure everything was corrected when the wrong length shaft was delivered. (That was 4wheelparts's fault in the first place)

I just thought they would be a bit more expensive. Lol, I just got quoted $725 from the dealer. I'm not even sure why I called.

If you feel the price is too low, I'm sure they'll accept donations.

Tom Wood (not Woods) makes a great driveshaft that isn't overpriced like the catalog and dealer driveshafts are. Go for it and please tell Tom I recommended him, he'll appreciate that after all the support he's given me over the years.

I was wondering if you were going to pop in on that one.

Tom Wood makes excellent driveshafts and has pretty much got it down to an easily repeatable art form which is how he can price them in a more appropriate manner.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.
