    I'm converting my 2005 PreRunner SR5 Reg cab to FJ 4x4. I need to find a driveshaft kit to weld into my 3.5" driveshaft, that will bolt up to the FJ transfer flange. I haven't cut it yet so I don't have the shaft thickness. Anyone with any knowledge on this subject, any pointers? It should look something like this.

    Right on. I was hoping to find the thickness of the oem 3.5" shaft.
    I'm assuming the FJ transfer case flange has the same bolt pattern as the Tacoma, takes the same flange yoke. I need to verify this.
    I found out we use the 1330 U-joints

    EDIT:
    Verified, FJ transfer case will accept Tacoma flange yoke.

    We use the Spicer 2-2-01904. This is used by the 1st and 2nd gen Tacoma.

    These parts fit and welded great! I didn't use the boot, wouldn't fit because of the cap /w grease fitting. No vibrations, even at 70
