I think this is the seller I went with a few years back. 1 piece slip style and diameter can be changed depending on length.
They were back east and had a phone number as well if you dont want to use ebay.

I never built driveshafts before the Jeep. I made custom ones with junkyard and eBay parts for the front and back now. Not really that hard, but mine aren’t that long 35” total. I think since you are running GM stuff, it would be pretty easy to find a truck shaft that is too long, cut one end off and re-weld the yoke on.

I was thinking something similar. Long bed full size shaft. How long are they and if it is close to what you want maybe just go with that to be modified to fit the correct rear end you are running?

Similar to the TC kit using T100 axles. Find a stock one that may work?

it was Coast Driveline but now it's Driveshaftpro in ventura did my shaft for me. It was around $500 because the Toyota runs a metric tube so I had to buy the whole piece even though I didn't need all of it.
I have made more than a few adapter rings to get 1350 yokes on toyota drive shafts.

The driveshaft place in vista told me they couldn't make what I wanted because of the different sizes. I said ok, give me the pieces. Went back to work made an adapter ring and took it back in about an hour. They thought it was rocket science lol. After that, they would call me every couple months to make one for them.

The driveshaft is way long as it is. I think I want a two piece, no? Granted, I don't want to deal with carrier bearings, so if a single will work, I'd be stoked

I ran a 2 piece shaft and I would play with the link geometry and carrier bearing location to minimize plunge and you won't have any problems with that. I had 1" of plunge and the soft toyota carrier bearings usually cause issues but with that plunge I never had an issue or had to change it ever.

I would've done that but I already had the toyota to 9in flange and it had the double carden joint I just needed it extended for 6' bed on a extended wheel base double cab truck

Explains why Tom woods wouldn’t build me a shaft for my tracker... pussies
