    No problem. I just didn’t want people who were looking for the reverse swap to be upset.

    6 stickers and some random stuff.
    Through the posts I was not able to find measurements and specs to a modified prerunner driveshaft to meet the needs of a conversion on a dcsb with the a750f and the fj manual case out an automatic fj. I have read that I can use the one from a dc or ec 4x4 but i rather mod the one I already have. Any input on this?

    I believe each individual truck needs different measurements considering lifts , body armor , topper on the box, tilted differentials . Although the added weight and height is minor, these aftermarket changes to the ride can add or subtract an inch or two from the stroke of the driveshafts .
    Driveshaft angles would be something I look at closely before getting the adjustment blade out .
    It may be why you cant find any solid measurements
