Anyone got one laying around or one in a boneyard close to them? I just need the double cardan part for a new rear driveshaft post-swap. Thanks!

Good luck. I had a hell of a time trying to find one.

My son & I found a tiny, local junk yard that had about five toyotas, but I don't remember if the driveshafts were still on any of them.Well actually the truck we scavenged, did have a drive shaft- I'll try to get over there tomorrow to see if its still there.

There is also a "pick&pull" that had a T-100. I wanted to go check it out also for some of my electrical needs. I'll see if the drive shaft is still on it also.

Probably wont be until the weekend for that.

Thanks. I appreciate it. I just need the front portion of the driveshaft that contains the CV if that helps.

I think I understand what your doing so no worries. It won't cost anything extra & probably just as easy grabbing the full shaft

Mark, let me know if you find something before this weekend as I said before, I'm planning to search for you this weekend. I'll also call you before I purchase to confirm price you want to spend etc.

I'll be able to ship to you reasonably using my discount or you can make a weekend road trip for it

Yea for obvious reasons drive shafts do not become available very often. I had one from my sas, but it sold the same day I decided to sell it and it was too short.

I do have your number so no worries except maybe weather...been raining for last 12 hours down here. But I think it is suppose to stop tonight

Yeah I am now sitting on three rear sections of my two piece shaft that are re-tubed to thicker wall but unfortunately will be too long post crawler install. They were re-tubed and I always carried one for a spare ever since I toasted my first driveeshaft that time Ron came to the badlands with us.

I am gonna post them up in the FS section here and over on TW I think.

Actually on way home from a closed FedEx substation ( I didn't get there before 9pm) so I'll have to sip it out tomorrow.

But I have he ends wrapped in cardboard and paper around it all should be fine to ship that way.

You should see how a lot of vehicle parts are actually shipped and especially from the manufactures like gm & ford...they don't even ship brake lines in any type of container! It's ridiculous if I was the car owner and saw how my repair parts got to the dealership I would be pissed! Lol

I'll "give you the shaft" tomorrow :) you'll have it by wednesday
