I was wondering, what are most of you running for a driveshaft? I get pretty serious bind at full droop, even with the diff pointed straight at the transfer. I just bought a 93 4runner front CV shaft and was going to lengthen that- I don't even know if that will work.

Not sure how much more droop your getting than mine but, I used a stock rear CV [cardian joint- whatever you wanna call it] off a reg cab Taco--- Milled the flange on the CV to fit the smaller front output flange--- No more binding
Worst case, give High Angle Drive line a shout

Thanks! are you running a crawler? I would imagine that would help quite a bit...
The crawler is still on the to-do list... Some day

Just checked out your site. Very nice looking build up!!!

Thanks! I figure the crawler is down the road quite a bit for me too. The front diff is still open as well. I really have no idea how serious I can get with my setup, I do have the factory rear locker and 4.88's and small big tires... Hoping to try it out and break something at AZ rocks!

Damn Mr. T, I'm diggin the T100. I have always liked those trucks, yours is extra dope!
Hey thnx for the compliment :D RE: D-shaft, I had to have a 12" travel shaft made because it would separate at full droop. If you are running a HP44 then maybe you'll be ok with a standard travel shaft.

Wow, thanks a lot! Skills- I am fortunate in that my father has a small shop for fixing his tractors for his excavating business. I learned how to weld about 7 years ago with a stick, moved to mig and now learning tig. I really just started making furniture and fish tank stands and just kinda learned as I went. Lots of reading, lots of failures and finally success! I have never had someone say "do this" which is good for creativity, but bad for instant success. I would say motivation is the door and patience is the key!

Your motivation and patience definetly paidoff. Im a newbie offroader but ive been a member to ttora for about 2.5 years now and it suprises me everytime on how much I learn from others by them messing up their own rig or by other experiences they went through. You definetly have the skill awesome work.
