I was just browsing around and saw these and was wondering if anyone here has any experience with them.

They don't make these for the 200 series, but if you have done the Tundra swap they will fit.

My gut feeling is telling me to stay far away, but would like to hear from others.

RCV is now selling CV axles for the Tundra. So for anyone who has done the Tundra conversion they are likely the strongest CVs available. Yes, even stronger than the OEM units.

they had me right up to sliding center bar
Wondering why that matters to you, our drive shafts have slip yokes and our CVs also plunge in and out at the inner joint.

From what I could find, the 200 series inner joints are plunging Rzeppa joints and the Tundra's are plunging tripod Joints. The inner joints are usually the ones that break. The Trakmotive CVs appear to have non plunging inner Rzeppa joints.

I had some of these Downey slip yoke axles on my Toyota Pickup back in the day :D
