Thanks Groovy Bloke, yes the shaft came out of an ln167. It has a greasable yoke at the top so depending on how much grease is in the there the length of the shaft can change, so exact lengths of the two shafts were no big issue and it fitted well. Glad you liked the paint job too, I probably put a bit too much effort in considering no one will see it when the tray is on haha
Well it will suit the rest of your ute that you've done up well. Given how much space they have underneath, I'm sure some enthusiasts will get a look in.
unfortunately it’s not on the road yet, but I’m really itching to get it registered soon. I can’t test it out yet though, but I’m glad you noticed a difference in yours. I have heard a few reports of the single piece tailshaft removing vibrations on the road, so it’ll be interesting to give it a good drive with it in.
I hear ya a bit there. I'm down south in an area where we're not allowed to go 4wding or camping at the moment. Even missing the long freeway drives! One day not too far off ideally. Would like to get some more 4wd "testing" in. They're great vehicles, reliable on road and off road.
