    I'm considering having a CV front drivesahft built for my SOA FJ-60. More travel and less binding. I think it will be a nice upgrade. I was curious if anyone has done this yet? Troy in Tahoe

    Or you could just yank one off of a pre-85 Fj60. Toyota already did it for you. :D

    How will you be gaining travel? Your front shaft will still pull apart if you are not limiting your down travel.

    Good luck!

    I meant a custom long travel CV driveshaft. We have a shop near here that custom builds long travel ones.

    Do you intend on running your truck at highway speeds with the front axle engaged?

    Sometimes I hit around 50 mph in the snow if I'm in a hurry. :D

    We use OEM CV shafts as cores for all our SOA drivelines, I run long-travel OEM CV's front and rear on my 40... love it. I can cruise 80mph in 4wd down the highway, without any ill vibration from the front....
