Description:

We offer custom-built driveshafts for 4x4 van conversions completed using our products. There is a bit of variability in the lengths depending on how your conversion is being handled, so generally, the more info we have on your project when you place your order, the better. Lead time to ship is approx 5-7 business days to build.  

Front driveshafts are built with a new front yoke and U-joint. Concerning our conversions, the front pinion of 8.25 and 9.25 front diffs ends up in just about the same location so there's no need to specify which one you're building. 

Custom Option:

If you are building a custom rig and need a front driveshaft that uses the same yoke and 3r joint as we have listed, we can build you a driveshaft to the length of your choice (under 40" c to c). Dimension should be given center-on-center for the U-joints when the vehicle is on the ground. There are no refunds, exchanges, or returns on Custom Option driveshafts. Please email us with your dimensions or questions. 

Design / Specs:

Our shafts are built for the NP261 transfer case. Yoke information is listed here and there is cross-compatibility with other transfer cases if that's helpful. 

This front driveshaft is a 1-piece steel design with an open 3r u-joint at the diff end and a 32 spline slip yoke for the transfer case side. Measurements are provided in center of u-joint to center of u-joint lengths. 

Diff side: 3R open u-joint
Transfer case side: 40006885, 32 spline yoke
Tubing: 2" OD
