Funny how everyone says you need this and it's still got problems lol..

Stock ones are fine though for replacements.

The Superlift drive shaft is far superior to the stock drive shaft. The Superlift unit puts better u-joint angles with the double cardon joint. The stock CV joint can't handle the angles for very long before blowing out.

any driveshaft with ujoints will have the joints wear out sooner or later. And is d-shaft has now been on 3 different trucks (Big05Ranger, Gumbys, and his), so Im sure its seen some abuse by now
