New Driveshafts For The Willy

With the placement of the transfercase about 7 inches aft of the stock location, the original driveshafts could not be reused, not that that would be a good diea anyway.

In case you've never looked at the orginal diveshafts from an old flattie, they are about 1 1/2 inches in diameter and solid not hollow like modern drivelines.

The new shafts are of the modern design. I had a local company make them to my specifications. The front was 26" long and the rear was a stubby 15". I don't really have an angle problem so a standard driveshaft was all I needed.
