CV shaft or regular?

I'm about to start collecting my parts to do SYE,barnes 2" TC skid, and new DS. I'm trying to decide if I should go with a double cardan shaft or stick with one that has a single ujoint at each end and slip joint in the middle.

the only downside I can see to the cv is it will be slightly weaker, but with the regular style it will be harder to eliminate all vibration.

CV- without a doubt! Get a quality unit like Tom Woods and you will not have a problem. I installed one in my V8 YJ about 9 years ago and have thrashed it with a very heavy foot and 300+ HP and have had ZERO problems with it! None, zippo, nada,.

I would go cv. Ur doing a sye then get a cv as well. I have one . Less vibrations and less angle and stress on the joins compared to just the one.
