I need the front drive shaft for an 02 fx4, so if you have something that will fit, let me know. I blew mine out today. (cant complain, i got 30k out of it with the lift kit, didnt owe me a thing haha)

Sooner the better, help me out haha.

It's not a rip off, just an alternative. I have it. Paid $400 for it and solved every problem.

Direct bolt in as well.

well i got 30 out of my last one, and i refuse to pay 500 for a new shaft haha, so i will just get a used one and get another 20k or so.

Downey- im going to check local boneyards to see if something comes up. If not, i will take you up on that one. sound like a plan?

if i had a shop with the right tools i would definitely build them.

Downey-I think i found one at a bone yard, i need some other odds and ends aswell so I think I will just pick up. Thanks for the offer though, I appreciate it.

OP, dont waste your time going through stock shafts. Upgrade it. I went through my first in 5k, then i got a junkyard replacement when snow hit, and it lasted me a whopping 10miles. That is when my new front shaft build was accelerated to be done.

See thread linked above and below...

Some like to get it done for half the price....I know in your situation you needed it then and now, but for others, like this time of year, dont need it immediately.

did you click the link above with all the info you need in it?

here's your adaptor:

http://www.drive-lines.com/parts1.php?pn=N2-83-288X


Yes....75 is too much for a used stock shaft that'll probably blow up a few days after putting it on. Ask me how I know.... I bought a tight tight 30k used shaft for 50, only to have it blow up less than 10miles down the road. Do you really need a front shaft right now? I mean....get your adaptor, get your shaft, get it shortened and bolting it up should only take a max of about 2 weeks of 4wd downtime.

yeah i clicked the link, its hard to filter though and find the good stuff...

Well, im heading down to assateague island next week so dont think i will have the time to get one made. "hopefully" this one will last through the trip. Im taking the tools with me just incase it goes out.

Im scanning tom woods right now getting ideas.
Thanks for the info you all though, i appreciate it.
