I have searched and read "lots" of posts here and elsewhere about driveshafts. I know I am going to need them at some time. I am probably suffering from info overload right now.
First the Jeep:
09 JK 2DR 6 speed.
3" TF lift with adjustable LCA's front and rear.
35" Nitto Terra Grapplers which actually measure just over 34".
The contenders in no particular order:
There are also several local driveline shops that have good reputations.
J.E Reel and Coast provide a direct, no need to change yokes or flanges, bolt on replacement. I have decided I don't want those. I have decided on getting the replacement flanges/yokes from whichever company I decide on so I am comparing apples to apples.
What are the pros and cons of the above options? I know everybody has a favorite and depending on where you ask, you get a bunch of support for Woods or Reel or Coast. Sites like these tend to not be local in nature and may not have a local option.
How do the local shops compare to the brands listed above?
Are there advantages to the online vendors?
All things being equal, I would rather buy local. Down side of that is 9.3 % is tacked on for tax so the local price is not too much cheaper than some online deals.
For quality, service and best bang for the buck, where would you buy your driveshafts from?
I really only want to do this once so I think a little research up front will pay off in the long run.
