    So my U joint on my front propeller shaft broke at the Differential. That sent my propeller shaft flying up and it decided to get bent and break too. Totally not a big deal I thought because I have a warranty.

    But the Dealership says they will not replace it because my truck is lifted and they are total A-Holes who don't stand behind anything they sell. I was not even doing anything when it snapped I was backing down a Hill. Totally freaking stupid.

    Anyways I don't wanna buy another toyota shaft, because they obviously totally suck. So where should I get one? I'm just not sure who would have the best one. I definitely never want this thing to break again so the stronger the better.
    Thanks for your help

    Do a hub conversion on the front then it will work fine. If they even make it for the newer tacomas

    I would just get a regular old driveshaft from a parts store or a driveshaft shop.

    Tom woods shafts are frigin awesome. He can make just about anything you need.

    Although - price is probably not practical to a daily driver if you can find a replacement cheaper.

    Tom Woods shafts are heavy duty shit. I had two of them on my jeep wrangler offroad rig.

    Noticed your in the Oregon area so I did a Google Search for propeller shafts in your area.

    http://www.driveshafts.com/ in Portland is one.
    Here is another link of drive shaft repair locations in Oregon

    Good luck. Ken
