    Morning TacomaWorld,

    I have an opportunity to pick up a replacement driveshaft today for my 05 4WD extended cab, the driveshaft is coming out of an 07 4WD DCSB however.

    I would assume that Toyota would not bother changing the wheelbase between the two models buttt besides for measuring can anyone provide a definitive yes/no as to whether this would work?

    Also is there any difference between the Manual/Automatic drivetrain dimensions?

    Cheers,

    Dylan

    Your best bet is to measure your OEM driveshaft and their driveshaft (the one you are buying) and compare them. If it's within an inch I think it would work. However, I bought a 1 piece from a local member that did not fit his truck nor mine until I swapped leaf packs, then it fit like a glove. But I am pretty sure a manual ext cab DS and an auto DC DS will not intertwine.
