    I like to buy local. I just picked up a driveshaft from a local (big) truck repair shop. Only thing I would add, is to make sure they are using good quality parts. If the U joints and yokes are all the same made in USA stuff, I don't see how the other, more popular driveshaft companies, could be any stronger.

    As to not muddle up Eddie's on the go thread I'm reviving this one with the drive line shop info.

    Hi-Desert Driveline in Hesperia is who I've referenced several times. Talk to Bruce. He'll build you what ever you want and can tell you exactly what you need. He prefers to only use Spicer solid joints, but will put in what ever his customer wants as well. I talked to him about Neapco as an option and said there pretty good too then proceeded to pull out a broken one and compared it to the Spicer with an explanation as to why it most likely broke. Old hot rodders, off roaders, and custom low riders go there. Gives you a vote of confidence when you see an ultra4 car parked in the shop too. . I went in there on a recommendation and ended up bsing with him for nearly an hour...haha.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
