I have a one piece driveshaft from Tom Wood's driveshafts waiting to go on the truck when I get a lift. I got it a long time ago when I had my '07. I had them make it for a 2" to 4" lift cause I plan on getting OME Dakars in the back. I think it was $400 for it but that was with a group buy discount. Anyways, if you get one like mine, it will be cheaper than what the dealer wants to charge you and of higher quality.

I agree....paid 180 for a Jeep shaft & about 350 for a Bronco 2 piece shaft at a local place.

Just curious, who told you to replace the drive shaft and why?

That sounds like just a ujoint or two, or three, but not a reason to get a new driveshaft

x2, that's exactly why I asked... seems like it'd take something drastic to call for a complete drive shaft replacement unless you're looking specifically to eliminate the carrier bearing.

Wow, Tom Woods ... that's the third time I've heard that name in a week. I guess he's good then.
Just pulling out the other half of my rear drive shaft. Dropped the front half off today at a drive line shop - he said he needed both halves - Duh. I'm hoping for a good price. I asked about a 1 piece and he said nope. Hangs too low, but I don't think so. Even with only a 3" lift it would be up and out of the way.
A guy on eBay makes nice ones, but doesn't have them built yet, so I'm stuck trying to find a good alternative.
Good luck

Did you get a second opinion ? $720 is a lot of money to pay for something you didn't need.
