    Awesome, glad it worked well for you. My vibes are very minimal and sometimes not noticeable, but I'd like to replace mine someday. Can't decide if I should go this route or add the double-cardan to the two-shaft setup.

    Are there any downsides to have a 1 piece driveshaft? Not sure why Toyota doesn't just use them from the factory.

    Not a bad price knowing it cures the issue. May have to add that to the list....

    Nice!

    I've read a lot of stuff on them. The only debate seems to be if the length might put extra stress on the seals.
    I can't image it being worse than all the constant shudder and vibrations.
    and there are a few guys on here that have run them a long time with no problems. I don't know why Toyota doesn't go 1-piece AND don't know why they go with that POS needle bearing in the front clam shell, already replaced it too (ECGS bushing), but I digress.

    I don't seem to have the take off shudder/vibration on my 13. I do have a very noticeable vibration at 60 MPH. At this speed my door panels actually make noises! I do not feel it is tire related. Plan on taking it in to the shop and demanding they do something. Any others having this type of vibration.

    I notice over, and over, and over the posters in this thread are Double Cab owners. I haven't seen a single Access Cab or Reg Cab owner post here (well maybe one AC owner, but he's not experiencing the horrible vibrations). And I'm certainly not experiencing any vibrations after 18k miles.

    What that tells me is the problem is with the drive shaft (as many have said). You DC owners have a longer wheelbase, therefore different drive shafts than the AC or the Reg Cab. Different lengths, different angles, different something.

    There's something wrong with the shafts, or as said above the angles on the shafts. Your frame rails are longer also, maybe that has something to do with it. Basically, I'm guessing, Toyota just extended everything for the DC, and didn't put enough engineering into the added stresses/torques.

    I have a '13 DC and have vibes when accelerating from aprox. 20km/hr-100km/hr. Less than 5000 kms on truck. It's driving me nuts but I am not applying TSB because as previous posters have said, i don't think it will fix anything. Really appreciate the update from P9HST2 on the new drive shaft. As soon as I am out of warranty I will do this mod. I may even discuss it with Toyota to see if there is some way I can do the mod now and not void the warranty. Thanks for the great info guys.
