    So....

    Most engine machine shops won't do it--I already asked.

    I have some axle shafts that need to have the splines extended. I could see this being incredibly easy, or incredibly hard to do. Just simple 30 spline Toyota axles....

    Anyone had this done in ABQ, or know of a shop that does it? I will probably buy the factory part anyway, but I'd like to keep these two (three if I do the same on the 40, which I probably will) as spares at least.

    I did a little checking around when I built the custom FF for my 40. Nobody in Albuquerque does it.

    Did you go with custom shafts then?

    I did.
    Nitro Chromoly CTL (Cut To Length) shafts, they have rolled splines instead of cut, which are allegedly stronger. They also have stock length shafts for 40, 60, 70 and 80 axles, all of them have long splines for Toyota lockers. They are a little north of $200 per shaft but that was about what it would cost to send stock shafts off to someone that would cut longer splines in them.

    Thanks guys. Almost certain I'll go the Nitro route. ...even though they don't have the same pattern on the end as the Toyota axles. ...and then people would be able to spot a non Toyota part on my truck just by looking! The horror!

    I know!

    I feel so dirty.

    ...but that can change if I happen to find some OEM parts for a good price. I'll probably slow peddle and hope that happens. ;)

    Crusier Dan can get you a Rear Free Float long spline axle shaft (short side) (42311-60081) for $240.70, this is a 70 Series that will fit a 40. I already had the OEM long side from you, so I stuck with OEM from CD. If I had to buy both sides, the Nitro chomoly set would have been a nice complement to the Longfileds I have in the front. If you really like OEM that much I would be more that happy to trade you an OEM set with the long spline short side for a set of these http://www.justdifferentials.com/AXTFF-FJ40-p/axtff-fj40.htm :D
