Is finding a replacement off a wrecked Ranger not an option?

Isn't the output shaft on the front the same as the 1354 electric case?
The superlift driveshaft is probably the best bet. I don't recall seeing any other bolt on aftermarket driveshafts that hold up on the lifted rangers.

^^ditto. it's the best upgrade and about your only option out there. And putting in another stock CV front driveshaft is a waste PERIOD on a Superlifted/RCD'd truck.

Check out this thread... https://www.ranger-forums.com/f37/fr...veshaft-73188/

It'll show you how to contruct your own shaft exactly like the Superlift shaft...for about half the price of the superlift. Below are links to other threads on the same subject of making your own superlift shaft...

And yeah Brian, the front output on the 02-03 twin sticks is the same as the rest of the 98+ trucks. CV poop shaft.
